The General Strike is Anti-Flag's eighth studio album. The album was released on March 20, 2012.[1] The album marks the band's second release for SideOneDummy Records. The first single from the album, "The Neoliberal Anthem" was released to the band's Facebook page in January 2012.

Writing and production[edit]

In June 2011, Justin Sane announced that the band had begun working on material for their new studio album under the working title, Magnum, which they hoped would be released in the fall. However the change in title led some fans to speculate if it was due to the Occupy Wall Street movement and protests around the world.
