Toronto-based quartet Billy Talent release their new single, 'Red Flag' on September 11 through Atlantic Records.
'Red Flag' is the second single taken from the acclaimed album Billy Talent II . The single is coupled with an explosive video directed by the legendary Floria Sigismondi (The Cure, White Stripes, Interpol, David Bowie).
Billy Talent broke through in to the punk mainstream in 2003 with their eponymous self-titled debut album after a decade of hard work and non-stop touring.
Billy Talent recorded their second album at the end of last year at Bryan Adams' Warehouse Studios in Vancouver with production duties overseen by Gavin Brown (who was at the helm of the band's first album) and guitarist Ian D'Sa. Billy Talent II sees the band's irresistible rock melodies taken to new heights as demonstrated on such stand out tracks as the anthemic 'Surrender', the raucous 'Devil In A Midnight Mass' and forthcoming single 'Red Flag'.
