Due to hit our shores real soon is Sweden's latest hardcore musical export in that of ANCHOR, who are continuing the tradition of flying the flag for the vegan / straight edge movement.

Featuring the legendary Circle Jerks / Black Flag frontman Keith Morris on vocals, one can't but be reminded of the classic Flag EP "Nervous Breakdown" Ep when they listen to OFF! Guitarist Dimitri Coats talks about the inner workings of the band ahead of their first Australian tour in December.

smlMindsnare-1
