Hi, thanks for checking out Antillectual

We're a punkrock trio from Nijmegen, the Netherlands. 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.

Final NOFX show after movie

After movie for the final Dutch NOFX show in Eindhoven, May 19, 2024: We expected it to be a crazy show and it ended up being exactly that!

The weather threw us a curveball: we had to put on sunblock during soundcheck because the sun was burning a hole through my skin. Second memory is plugging in our guitars to start the set, looking up and seeing a curtain of rain pouring down over the people in front of the stage. What a way to start…

We had some true “strijders” in front of us risking their health and pulling everyone through the rain. When the sun finally came out a huge wave of people that had been sheltering from the rain and watching us from afar rushed to the stage, truly heartwarming <3

NEWSLETTER MAY 2024: Deutsche and Dutch shows

We’re not even halfway 2024 and we’ve been all over the place already! And we’ve still got many visits left! France, Spain, Portugal, Italy and the United Kingdom were great, Germany and The Netherlands are looking extremely promising!


Our 2 week tour to France, Spain and Portugal was really something! It had been a while since we last visited, but it was incredible seeing our friends there, playing our new tunes for them and making new friends at that! We finally made it back to the UK for Manchester Punk Fest, and we were pleasantly surprised following up our recent little Italy trip! We took some photos of our adventures and posted them on the news feed of our website.

From shots of the tour with Pussy Riot we created a nice lyric video for “Support Bands” together with Bram Bergs. It felt fitting: a song about bands supporting people and movements under pressure. Let them know that they’re not alone, people across the world are rooting for them!

To do

Coming up next is the very last NOFX show that will happen in the Netherlands, in Eindhoven on May 19. Also featuring Circle Jerks, Heideroosjes, Negative Approach, Itchy and the Last Gang. We can’t even comprehend what this event is going to be like, but we’re more than ready to give our all singing them farewell!

After recovering from the NOFX hangover, we’ve got 4 shows in Germany, including guaranteed fun times in some of our favorite cities Berlin and Hannover:

22.05 Krefeld, Kulturrampe w/ Molly Punch
23.05 Hannover, Stumpf w/ Chester Park, Couchdivers
24.05 Berlin, Badehaus w/ Good Views, Bad News
25.05 Bielefeld, Fairticken w/ Sleepless Nights

And in June we will be hitting our Dutch home turf:

07.06 Den Haag, PAARD w/ Cooper
14.06 Gouda, So What w/ STiCKFiGS
21.06 Uden, De Pul

Info and tickets for all of the shows above can be found on the tour list on our website.

That’s it for now, thanks for reading our newsletter! Don’t be shy, hit reply; we love hearing from you… In the next episode you will find out about our fall plans!

Take care, Ben, Riekus & Willem

Another extremely fun tour in the books: ITALY! Probably our nicest Milano show, first time Modena and a completely crazy night in Pordenone! Thanks to Teste Ribelli Fest for the invite and everyone else helping out with the good times. And the food, there was a lot of it; we like food, food tastes good!
Grazie mille, alla prossima!

Pussy Riot

The little tour with PUSSY RIOT was intense: their passion and tenacity is very impressive and inspiring! If you have the chance to catch them, go check them out! Inform yourself on what’s going on in Russia and support counter culture!
