Punk legends Anti-Flag have announced that they will be raffling off a very limited run of fuzz pedals, and an absurdly unique vinyl LP in aid of Black Lives Matter.
The pedal, manufactured by Abominable Electronics, features the Anti-Flag logo along with the words “fuck white supremacy.” Four are available to win, and while we don’t know exactly what it sounds like – given Abominable Electronics’ modus operandi, it’s safe to say things might get loud, as the pedal brand tends to produce fuzzes capable of sludge-metal levels of heaviness and beyond.
The accompanying vinyl record is a pressing of the band’s Live – Vol. 1, and features the burnt remains of an American Flag pressed into the wax. The run was limited to 10 records only, some of which have previously been auctioned off for charity in the past, but only one is up for grabs by the grand prize winner.
The band writes of the competition: “this item is a digital raffle ticket that entitles you to 1 entry to win 1 of 4 Anti-Flag ‘Fuck White Supremacy’ distortion/fuzz pedals made by Abominable Electronics! One grand prize winner will also win 1 “Anti-Flag – Live Vol. 1” burnt American flag LPs. This is an incredibly rare variant pressing limited to only 10! In collaboration with Wax Mage Records, these records contain actual burnt pieces of an American flag pressed inside of the vinyl.”
100% of sales from the raffle tickets will go towards Black Lives Matter. Four total winners will be chosen, with three winning just fuzz pedal and one winning both the vinyl and the pedal. Winners will be announced tomorrow (9 June).
The news follows A-F Records’ participation in Bandcamp’s recent revenue-waiving Friday, where bands and labels forwarded on profits to charitable causes. A-F Records supported Campaign Zero, a cause dedicated to ending police brutality in America.
