Review: Future History – In Your Face webzine (Germany)

Seit dem Eintritt in das neue Millenium gibt es die Holländische Emo Punkrock-Kapelle ANTILLECTUAL, wobei sich Emo im guten Sinne der Alten Schule der End-Achtziger Jahre versteht. Unspektakulär und von souveräner Hand von Sänger Willem geführt, erschienen ihre LPs und Singles aus dem Nichts. Ohne große Ankündigungen und Marketing sind sie einfach da. Ihre treuen Fans wissen darum und alle anderen Punkrocker sollten sich unbedingt um diese drei Mann starke Combo kümmern, denn es lohnt sich jedes Mal.

So verhält es sich auch bei der neuen Vier-Song-Single “Future History”, die ganz simple die Stärken der Holländer ausspielt. Das sind emotionaler Gesang, der nie weinerlich wird, hymnische Refrains, mal ruhige, mal schnelle, mitreißende Songs und immer korrekte Texte. Und ganz viel Gänsehaut. Alles das vereint der Opener und Titel-Track, der sich ganz tief in die Gehörgänge bohrt. “Mother Inferior” ist ein rasender Punkrocker, kurz und bündig und furios. “Because We Can” tut fast schon weh, so gut, so schön ist diese Nummer. Der Refrain geht einem nicht mehr aus dem Kopf. Eine klare Absage an Machotum und Sexismus ist das akustische “Pink Print” und erinnert, wofür Punk steht, nämlich Gleichheit und Individualismus.

ANTILLECTUAL sind aus der Szene unserer Nachbarn nicht mehr weg zu denken, repräsentieren sie den positiven und korrekten Geist des holländischen Punk von LÄRM über MAN LIFTING BANNER bis zu ANTILLECTUAL. All das Gute aus Punk in vier Songs!

Out now: Future History. Full EP stream online

Yesterday, we released our 6th studio effort “Future History”. Together with a bunch of friends and the up-and-coming melodic punkrockers of Harsh Realms we celebrated this in a cosy rehearsal-room in Utrecht. We sure had a blast and would like to thank those who joined us. Tom Roelofs was kind enough to take some pictures, which can be found on our Facebook page. Also, many thanks go out to everyone who pre-ordered the EP!

So, with the release date behind us, it’s time we unleashed the EP upon the world. As of yesterday, you can stream the entire EP on our  website, listen to it on Spotify, or download it from iTunes. If you prefer your music digital, you can buy the EP from us directly through bandcamp for € 2.

The first reviews are coming in too. If your Dutch or Italian is any good, check what 3voor12 and Rock Rebel Magazine have to say about it.

More updates about the EP will follow as they come in. For now, we hope you enjoy your vinyl, digital download or the stream. The EP can be ordered right here.

To our German friends: hope to see you next weekend when we come over to Kassel and Bremen. To our Canadian / USA / Brazilian friends: we’re looking forward to seeing you very soon!
