Anti-Flag releases The Terror State

The Terror State is the fifth full length album by Pittsburgh punk rock natives Anti-Flag; released October 21, 2003 on the independent label Fat Wreck Chords.

The album's artwork was regarded as somewhat controversial, and the band was forced to create an alternate version (which was simply all black with the Terror State logo centered.) for sale in some larger chain stores. They provided information about the incident on their website. Helmed by Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello, The Terror State was hailed as Anti-Flag's most polished album to date. The album made #1 on KTUH's charts on the week of January 19, 2004. As of April 3rd, 2008, the album has sold 106,000 copies.
