Music video Racist Rash!

Finally we can present you music from our new album “ENGAGE!”. And as a bonus you can now pre-order our new album!

“Racist Rash” is the first single from “ENGAGE!” and it seems like a good first representation since there’s quite a few faster songs on the album. The song clearly deals with the racism that is still omnipresent in our culture, sports, traditions, policies, etc. The song clearly deals with the racism that is still omnipresent in our culture, sports, traditions, policies, etc. These days a Dutch celebrity (Sylvana Simons) gets heavily attacked because of her skin color and her anti-racist criticism. These days a “normal” European country like Austria might elect an extreme right President. Racism is not an opinion or an ideology, it’s a crime to be convicted or a disease to be cured at best.

The video was shot (at the famous “Onderbroek”), directed and edited by Harko Wubs, a political film and documentary director and producer, who is active in the field of migration, refugee and border issues.

“Antillecu-Ale beer” is a limited edition beer by breweries Katjelam and De Gifbeker in celebration of our new album. A tasty beer based on the Netherlands’ best and most organic beer, Germany’s most energizing soft drink and nature’s best remedy to vocal troubles.

New album “ENGAGE!”

Artwork by Sebas Verdikt

Artwork by Sebas Verdikt

On July 29 we will release our new album “ENGAGE!”. Living in a world that is coping with conflicts and crises it is time to engage! Critical times call for critical music.

We have taken a completely new approach to creating and perfecting this album. For the (pre)production of the new album we’ve worked with a dream team covering the loud music area from left to right, from poppy to obscure. Songs are more fine-tuned than before; even more thought and effort is being put in. Of course there is still that typical Antillectual flavor. Yet, you will find that new toppings and deeper layers have been added, which you will discover after taking some more bites from the new Antillectual pizza. To top it off: very interesting guest vocalists make their appearance on “ENGAGE!”.

The album comes out in Europe through Redfield Records (Gameface, Kids Insane, John Coffey), in Asia through Waterslide Records (Literature, Steve Adamyk Band, Bangers) and in South America through Fusa Records (Nitrominds, Adrenalized, Kacttus).

Music video “Racist Rash”

On May 23 we will release the first single from the album: “Racist Rash”. Album pre-orders will start on the same day. The video is shot by documentary filmmaker Harko Wubs. To give you an impression of what the video will be like you can check the trailer for the music video!

Release show and tour

We’ll celebrate the release of our new album with a release show at Willemeen, Arnhem on the 31st of July. Our friends in Such Gold and Strike Anywhere are also playing, how cool is that!

2015, the recap

You were a terrific year to us! We might not have played a record breaking amount of shows, but the ones we played were high quality! We got the chance to play fun festivals like the Obenuse Fest, This Is My Fest, More of This Fest, Frotheim Open Air, Woodstick Festival and Huhn Auf’s Eis Festival. We played with amazing bands like Such Gold, Red City Radio, Bangers and Great Collapse. We also discovered new territory like Canada with our buddies in Clipwing and Fortune Cookie Club and Japan with Dead Neck. In 2015 Willem and Toon did their first acoustic shows together. And last but not least: we started writing, fine-tuning and recording a new album. The year ended with a definite banger and future tradition; our own Friends First Fest.

Have a brilliant new year’s eve and see you on the other side!
