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.

SHRED FEST AFTER MOVIE

Last weekend we did a skating and music fest together with Waalhalla, and it was f*ckin awesome! Check the after movie to see yourself, or all the fun you missed!

Thanks to Waalhalla for hosting; Patch the Sky, Ink Bomb and Dick Perrie for playing; DIY Donations for supporting the cause; Moonboy Films for the amazing after movie and all the people that watched bands and/or skated for making this so incredible!

See you at Shred Fest #2?

Shred Fest & Fresh Merch

After a false start last fall live events are really back this time! We can finally reveal the new festival we’ve been hinting at: SHRED FEST, a combination of music and skating! And there’s a pre-order for great looking new shirts and sweaters:

New merch designs

Fresh Merch

With shows on the way we wanted to make new merch. We made a poll and people picked the Bijstand mural design by Mike Nicolaassen. You can pre-order a shirt, crewneck or zipper with an album of choice! We have all items in 3 color options (black/navy/burgundy) and a wide range of sizes available for pre-order only! Pre-orders are up until Sunday Feb 27, orders will be sent out at the beginning of April.

Unfortunately our financial reserves have vanished during the pandemic, this is the ultimate way to support us. Thank you for helping us out this way; it means the world to us, and makes new recordings possible(!)

Shred Fest, April 2nd in Waalhalla Nijmegen

Shred Fest

When Friends First Fest #6 got postponed to Dec 2022 we wanted to do “something” as soon as measures would allow it. SHRED FEST is our impromptu festival happening at skate park Waalhalla in Nijmegen on April 2nd. Combining a rad line-up (announcement soon!) with skate demos, contests, jams and food! You heard the announcement here first, keep an eye on our social media or the FB event for updates! Bring your board / bmx / blades / scooter kid or borrow some gear from Waalhalla and come SHRED with us!

Videos of the deconstruction of 'I Wrote This Song'

Deconstructing I WROTE THIS SONG

To kill the downtime we’ve been doing all sorts of pandemic projects: a drum chronology, acoustic shows and covers. The latest (and hopefully the last) one is a series about the deconstruction of I WROTE THIS SONG. The first 3 episodes give a peek at our songwriting process through demos, instrumentation breakdowns, the song’s structure and music that inspired the songwriting. Subscribe to our Youtube channel for new episodes!

Bijstand Mural Pre-order

Remember when we did a merch design poll with 2 designs; a cheetah vs a mural from one of our favorite bars? The Bijstand mural design was favored by most, so now you can pre-order a SHIRT, CREWNECK or ZIPPER with an album of choice! We have all items in 3 color options (black/navy/burgundy) and a wide range of sizes available for pre-order only! Pre-orders are up until Sunday Feb 27, orders will be sent out at the beginning of April.

Unfortunately our financial reserves have vanished during the pandemic, this is the ultimate way to support us. Thank you for helping us out this way; it means the world to us, and makes new recordings possible(!)

Deconstructing I WROTE THIS SONG – episode 3

There’s a new episode of the deconstruction of I Wrote This Song! Episode 3 contains a first attempt at vocals, real drums and adjusting the tempo, and an analysis of structural updates. It’s so much fun ripping apart old songs!
