Flobots announce their RISE + SHINE Tour - West Coast, which brings Flobots’ and Special Guest Bang Data to 22 western U.S. cities this fall.
The RISE + SHINE Tour is a call to action, set to remind us that the division and negativity that currently dominate the national conversation is not in the spirit of human nature – that our true potential is much more positive and welcoming. Flobots say, “The music on our album NOENEMIES is about our power to see each other more fully. We find that there’s nothing better for the soul than meeting people face to face. We cannot wait to hit the road!”
“Quarantine” Official Video Released!
Today, Denver Comic Con exclusively premiers the video for Flobots’ new single “Quarantine.” Flobots’ Emcee Brer Rabbit created the video using footage from the 1988 classic Anime film Akira. Brer Rabbit, a fan of Akira creator Katsuhiro Otomo, discovered the movie as a teen from a bootleg VHS, which in his own words, changed his life forever. “The colors, the characters, the MUSIC, the message,” states Brer Rabbit, “Otomo painted a vision of the future in dark strokes, the constant clash for power, the eradication of information to control the narrative, how our monsters and heroes are homemade, and ultimately that children will be the ones who will have to pay the price.” Seeing the parallel themes in Flobots’ song “Quarantine,” Brer Rabbit was inspired to “dust off my old Otaku chops and make an Anime music video.” He continues, “In times of division, vision is essential. We do not need to separate ourselves from one another. We need to set a perimeter around the parts of ourselves that deny other people's pain- to quarantine the part within that feeds on the ritual of ‘us versus them,’ of enemies. In the war against fear we are all on the same side.”

Flobots released their new album, NOENEMIES, on May 5, 2017. Amidst a nation taking to the streets, NOENEMIES is collection of protest songs, Flobots style. Influenced by stories shared by Flobots’ friend and longtime mentor and Southern Freedom Movement historian and professor - the late Dr. Vincent Harding, and inspired by the band’s recent grassroots community work hosting workshops, classes and keynote speeches about using collective song to build social movements, NOENEMIES is a body of songs that speak to the urgency of the current moment.
HUGE THANKS TO ALL OF FLOBOTS’ KICKSTARTER BACKERS WHO MADE THIS ALBUM POSSIBLE.
