Anti-Flag "This Is The New Sound" from the album "The General Strike", out March 20th, 2012 on Sideonedummy Records. http://Store.sideonedummy.com
"This Is The New Sound" video was shot at the historic Ohio State Reformatory, the same prison where Shawshank Redemption was filmed.
Amnesty International is teaming with Pittsburgh-based rock band Anti-Flag to speak out against indefinite detention, premiering the group's new music video, "This is the New Sound." Amnesty International and Anti-Flag have worked together on a number of important human rights causes, taking campaigns on tour with the band in the United States and overseas.
"The erosion of human rights should always be taken seriously," said Anti-Flag band members. "We wanted to find a creative and clever way to introduce these ideas into the discourse about our new record, 'The General Strike.' This video is a culmination of that idea. Sure, maybe we will talk about how funny it is to see puppets beating the hell out of us, but we'll also discuss the fact that people are being held in prisons, without fair trials, and President Obama's promise to shut down Guantánamo Bay remains unfulfilled."
