Antillectual joins Loud Noise

Antillectual is joining the Loud Noise band roster for their Benelux and European bookings (Germany excluded). A hard working and touring band and an ambitious booking agency that is spreading their wings sound like a perfect match.

Loud Noise is the Netherlands’ biggest booking agency for loud music. They are the European home to bands like Metal Church, Turnstile, Angel Dust, No Turning Back, VandenBerg’s Moonkings, No Warning and many more. Next to bookings Loud Noise hosts festivals like The Sound of Revolution, Dynamo Metalfest and Cityrock. Also, the Loud & Rising tour is a Loud Noise initiative to support up and coming bands. Singer/guitarist Willem reflects:

“We’re celebrating ten years on the road, having toured most European countries and most continents. With our new album ENGAGE out worldwide and Loud Noise on our side we can take our international adventures to the next level”

Martijn van den Heuvel represents Antillectual at Loud Noise. Martijn knows the punk and hardcore scene like no other as singer of No Turning Back and founder of Stronger Bookings. After merging with Loud Noise they established the strongest Dutch heavy music agency.

The Latin American tour with Satanic Surfers has come to an end

This tour has been the most inspiring, exhausting, impressive and rewarding thing we have ever done. We want to thank all people – the old friends that came back to see us, the new friends that had never heard of us before the shows – for coming out early to the shows, for dancing and singing along, for buying souvenirs at the merch booth, for taking selfies and asking us to scratch our albums with our signatures.

Check our social media (#Antillectual @ facebook, instagram, twitter) to get an impression of what kind of roller-coaster this tour has been. Tour reports in words and (motion) pictures will follow soon-ish.

Lastly we want to thank Satanic Surfers for having us on this tour, Solid Music Entertainment for booking the whole thing, Fusa Records and Bird Attack Records for releasing our album in Latin America and the Dutch Performing Arts fund (NFPK) for supporting Dutch bands across the border.
