Anti-Flag releases The Bright Lights of America
The Bright Lights of America is the seventh studio album released by Anti-Flag on April 1, 2008.
The first song released from the album was "Good 'N' Ready", featured on Fat Wreck Chords Hanuk-Comp From the Dreidel to the Grave compilation. In a recent interview Justin Sane told the interviewer the album was going to be different from the last including new styles and elements including using orchestra instruments and child choirs. Much of the album was released on the band's MySpace with twelve of the thirteen tracks on March 24, 2008. This album was also the first Anti-Flag record to include a string section. The band is often criticized for this effort because it is an extreme departure from their normal musical style.
