Anti-State comes from the anarchopunk tradition as we draw on many musical inspirations such as Anti-sect, Conflict, Flux of Pink Indians, Crass, Discharge, Rudimentary Peni, Subhumans as well many more influences such as Punk/Oi!.
Looking back at the message and politics behind the lyrics we felt that whilst the world has moved on, very little or nothing has changed.
Peoples continue to be oppressed by governments, our earth, its environment and its animals remain increasingly exploited by multinationals.
At present we are working on our own material as well as doing various covers of the songs that meant a lot from those who have motivated each of us over the years.
