Hi, thanks for checking out Antillectual

Antillectual We're a punkrock trio from Nijmegen, the Netherlands: Willem, Riekus and Toon. We've toured and released albums worldwide since 2005. We like our punkrock political and melodic, combining the best of ’90’s skatepunk, ’00’s emo and ’10’s orgcore.

New album “ENGAGE!”

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!
