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.

Miscellaneous

So we're back from one tour, and have announced the next one as well. A lot is happening over here. And to keep you up to date as much as possible we'll try to update this site a little more often. Feel free to comment on stuff we're posting. "Communication is what it's all about" sing two major bands, so let's do it.

First of all, if you happen to have/find reviews, pictures, videos, whatever from our USA tour, please send them or a link to us. We like to keep track and collect a lot of souvenirs this way. A written tour report and the last episode of the tour video report are to come.

For the Americans that are looking for ways to order our merch cheaper than from us (shipping costs and stuff) check out Jump Start Records for the Testimony LP. For the CD/LP of Silencing Civilization and the Testimony CD get in touch with Square of Opposition Records. He is more up to date with his email than with his website. Don't you worry. Square of Opposition also has some left over T-shirts from our USA tour up for sale. Soon they will be for sale through this website too. About that; we sold out some old shirt designs and updated this on the merch section. The remastered Silencing Civilization CDs and LPs are available for ordering.

We also found some new reviews of Testimony in German at Waste of Mind fanzine and Blueprint Fanzine, in English in Can You See the Sunset, Punktastic. On top of that the German zine Ox did an interview with us. You can find the online version here. Soon there will be an interview on ipunk.cz and Last Hours. As if we wouldn't let you know.

Phil from Black Numbers Records (Static Radio, Purpose, Rock,star) asked us if we would like to participate in a Kid Dynamite tribute "Carry the torch" they are releasing together with Copper Lung Records and Get Outta Town Records. And of course, we're honoured. There's a list of already confirmed other bands which is quite exciting. So next weekend we'll be recording Kid Dynamite's "Wrist rocket" and perhaps some demos for our own new songs. If there's enough time though.

For now we hope to see you at the Speak Out Fest which can't go wrong with a line up like this: Smoke or Fire, Fake Problems, Tenement Kids, Brat Pack, Rush 'n Attack, Omission, Brito.

Back from USA tour

After being on the road for almost a month, we made it home tuesday morning from our third US eastcoast tour. To start off with, we have a little dutch report and some video footage of the almighty Fest 7 to show. Check out the dutch report and the Fest 7 video on youtube.

We can hardly start to describe how much fun we had on this tour: seeing old friends, making new ones, playing awesome venues, houses, sheds and bars and hopping on to some sweet parties. Despite some tough drives, days off and surprises along the way it was totally worthwhile! We would like to take the time to say "thank you" to the people that have made this tour possible. Without them, we would never even have thought of crossing the big black pond.

Thank you: Jeff Meyers, Dan & Ryan & Solid & Ellis & Justin & Rob @ One Win Choice, Jeremy @ Jumpstart, Chris @ Square of Opposition Records, Tony & Cam @ No Idea, Pitter "halve litter", Martijn @ Spinner, Mike @ After the Fall, All @ Static Radio,everybody that hooked us upn with a show, a sleeping place, some food and even drinks, all bands we played with and obviously all the people that came to our show, watched us and maybe bought some merch to keep us on the road. And everyone we forgot about. Can't win 'em all …

The 4th and last part of our video-report will be up somewhere next week, together with a written report, keep an eye out. In the meantime, we have some new pictures up on our picasa

Also, you might want to be prepared for a sweet merch-offer coming up. More to come …

Survived fest 7!

That's right! we're back from the Fest and we loved it! 3 days of amazing bands, amazing weather, amazing people all over the place. Need i say more? Ok: spontaneous backyard shows, warehouse shows, great veggiefood.. Fest 7 was one hell of an experience. I'd like to say a quick "thank you" to all the friends we met and especially the No Idea crew for making this whole thing happen. Thanks!

 In other news: we have the second part of our tourvideo online. Check out part 2 . I'm sorry if the sound is a little out of sync. My macbook is severely suffering from tour-fatigue i guess.. 

Oh, and we have some pictures from my phone in the photos section. More quality pictures will be added as tour is slowly grinding towards its end.

Hope to see some of at the upcoming shows in Baltimore / New York / New Brunswick
