Antillectual pulls the plug

ANTILLECTUAL News Letter May 2009: ANTILLECTUAL PULLS THE PLUG

After years of writing songs on acoustic guitars, people asking us to play some songs acoustic and acoustic jamming together on tour, we decided to do it right: release an acoustic album and play acoustic shows. And obviously there’s also some more “ordinary” touring and recording to announce.

- Release acoustic 7”
- Euro tour May
- New songs, recordings and other stuff

Release acoustic 7”
In March we recorded 4 songs (2 old, 2 new) on acoustic guitars and percussion. We’re very happy with the result and are proud that Shield Recordings and No Reason Records release them as the “Pull the Plug” 7”. The release date is set on July 5. If you want to get colored vinyl and a chance to win a test pressing, pre-order the single at shield recordings . It will also be available as a download from July 5 just like our debut album “Silencing Civilization”. The EP will include a download code for MP3’s and will first be available at our acoustic show at Knoflook in Den Bosch (NL) together with Mischief Brew, aka our acoustic EP release show. If you are curious what we sound or even look like acoustic; check out these live clips: http://www.vimeo.com/3836932 and http://vimeo.com/3836906 or download a song here
