"this is the sound of righteous anger in 2018. And it's absolutely superb." - Kerrang!
"With Capture the Flag, War on Women has taken every appalling headline, every new low in the name of patriotism, and every systemic problem (both fashionable and latent) over the last two years and balled them into a fist." - Noisey
"The hardcore-inspired alt-rock of War on Women’s second album is as blunt as reality. They’re not so much raging against the machine as blazing through the air that keeps it alive." - Pitchfork
On the heels of their recently released third full-length Capture The Flag, co-ed feminist punk band War On Women have unveiled a powerful music video for the track “Anarcha.” Vocalist Shawna Potter commented, “This song is about all the stories our country has buried or ignored. I wanted to memorialize Anarcha, Lucy, and Betsey in the best way I knew how, through song, and the shooting of this video just happened to coincide with tearing down a statue of J. Marion Sims, the man who experimented on them and other enslaved women.”

War On Women were born screaming—at the world, at the status quo, in the face of oppression. The band’s latest album alcifies that rage, and no one in its wake is safe. Much more than a collection of songs or sonic experiment, Capture The Flag is a call to action that cannot be ignored.
