A-F Records is pleased to announced that we are releasing THIS CONCERNS EVERYONE, a compilation of protest songs featuring Tom Morello, Chris Wollard, members of Anti-Flag and tons more.
According to a press release, the idea for the compilation began as a split between Anti-Flag’s Justin Sane and Chris #2 as well as The Homeless Gospel Choir and Chris Stowe. As the venture grew more people got involved until the project grew into a full-blown compilation record.
Chris #2 had this to say about THIS CONCERNS EVERYONE:
"We wanted to make it interesting and only allow one track. One take. One voice. One instrument. This idea immediately seemed bigger. I got on the phone with some friends to see if we could build this into an actual comp. This Concerns Everyone is that idea coming to fruition. You don’t need a band or a studio or record label or anything but yourself and a song. We hope that through listening to this comp people can feel the same way that we do. Our songs, art, poetry, whatever your medium, lasts longer than you do. That’s a powerful idea that something you’ve created can touch someone long after you’re gone."
A portion of the proceeds for the compilation will be sent to Right To Heal Campaign, which is a joint effort between The Iraq Veterans Against The War, Organization of Women’s Freedom In Iraq and the Federation of Workers Councils and Unions In Iraq. Check out the track-listing, which features a mix of covers and original tracks, below.

We have restocked ANTI-FLAG’s “Drop Pucks Not Bombs” hoodies!

We have also added GIRLS Small & Medium to ANTI-FLAG’s “Duct Tape Gunstar” hoodie

<”LASTLY, we have a small treat! While we still have full-packed copies of WHATEVER IT TAKES “A Fistful Of Revolution / Stars & Skulls EP”, we found a whole spool of 30 copies WITHOUT that packaging. We don’t have anymore of those booklets etc, so we’re giving these 30 CDs away to the next ANTI-FLAG / WHITE WIVES related purchases!

MASSIVE ONLINE STORE UPDATE

Happy Friday everyone! We’ve been VERY busy this week at A-F Records wrapping up contests, brainstorming new ones, revamping websites and adding to the online store. It’s been a week!

Here are a couple of things you need to know!

1. Last night, I found out that all of our oldest CDs and vinyls weren’t even posted in the store! Hot dang! We’ve added a new CLEARANCE section for our MUSIC catalog where everything is $5!!! Not only that, but I’m ready to bid a fond farewell to these old CDs and records, so our music clearance items are all BUY ONE GET ONE FREE! Just enter the promo code: “AFBOGO” at the checkout screen for the discounts to apply. **Note: Discount applies to music in the clearance section ONLY. Among the clearance items also lie 3 VINYL records (ANTI-FLAG // THE UNSEEN) as well as WHITE WIVESHappeners" CD. Most of the other CDs are EXTREMELY limited, so be sure to take full advantage of our BOGO promo (hey, that’s fun to say!)

2. WHITE WIVES - HAPPENERS LP has been added to the A-F Records store! The LP comes in 3 different covers, as well as 2 different colors (blue or purple). Get ‘em while they’re hot!

3. ANTI-FLAG - THE TERROR STATE & UNDERGROUND NETWORK LPs have ALSO been added to the store! We had just a handful of these leftover from ANTI-FLAG's recent trip on the FAT TOUR. Seriously, there are less than 10 of each! Get one while you can!

4. Just one more quick note that we still have a few CLEARANCE CLOTHING articles left as well — $20 Hoodies, $10 T-Shirts! ANTI-FLAG's “Toast To Freedom" 7-inch is also BACK IN STOCK! 

Whew! That’s a lot to take in, I know! 

In other news, I’ve also been busy revamping the A-F RECORDS TUMBLR SITE! Take a look around! There are now up-to-date pages where you can find TOUR DATES, CONTESTS, A-F RoTWs, F.A.Q section, and more! There are all kinds of new things coming to A-F Records this year, we’re only getting started!

And finally, I’d like to extend my thanks to everyone that participated in our ART CONTEST. The entries were so rad to see! You can see them all now on our FACEBOOK PAGE.

That’s all I have for you guys this week. There’s an AWESOME contest launching next week! Be sure to keep up with the Contests page here, or watch our FB page for details. See you all next week!
