Anti-Flag has released yet another single from its latest album, American Fall.
The band released the explicitly-titled song ‘Mr. Mother******.’ The song is streaming online now via Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play and all digital platforms. It is available for purchase online via iTunes and Amazon.
Guitarist Chris #2 said of the song, which was originally a b-side for the band’s American Attraction picture disc, that it is meant to pay homage to certain social activist organizations.
“Honestly, we just wanted to throw our hat into the ring in the storied history of Stagger Lee,” Chris #2 said. “Our version has nods to those in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement of today, the black panther movement and the overall fight for social and economic justice.”
He added the song, creatively, was a reflection of the band trying something new in terms of its songwriting approach.
“This is a one-take demo of the song that we thought captured something very cool,” Chris #2 said. “We were trying to push ourselves to experiment with tempos and structures when writing for American Fall, and those experiments are pretty clear on ‘Mr. Mother******.’
