Anti-Flag just dropped new song titled ‘Unbreakable,’ now their third single from the upcoming album ’20/20 Vision’ due out on the 17th of January. The band teamed up with the young Nigerian filmmaking collective The Critics Company for the accompanying video, so make sure to check it out below.
Chris #2, bassist and vocalist, said of the team-up, “I saw this on Twitter and I thought there was nothing more in the spirit of punk rock, of DIY ethics, than what these kids were doing. As their story began to spread and people from Anti-Flag to [film director] J.J. Abrams were celebrating these kids, I thought to ask them if they’d want to make a music video. They said yes, immediately, even in the chaos of them going from 100 followers to over 10,000 in a day. This to me is what technology, the internet, all of the things that have been exploited to gain the powerful more power, were supposed to do. Bring us together, give us creative outlets, erase borders, economic divisions, and racial barriers. The video is their story.
“In the face of being told that kids from Africa don’t make movies, that you need professional equipment, and through your family having immense pressure to find the daily things needed to survive. Follow your passion. Creation is an action, not a reaction. It’s also coincidentally the over-arching theme of the song, written by four people on the other side of the world, with insanely different lifestyles and backgrounds than The Critics Company, but share the same solidarity.”
