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.

Friends First Fest

All bands have been announced and tickets are on sale starting now! If you wanna join us at De Onderbroek in Nijmegen on Thursday December 29, make sure to get a ticket in presale, as it will probably sell out like previous editions.

New album

We’re working hard on the release of our new record. We can’t wait to share it with the world, but we’ll have to wait until the vinyl is ready. Yet, we wanted to show our loyal newsletter readers the beautiful artwork by Thomas at Dark Roast and present the title: TOGETHER! If you come to a show, you can hear a new song live: From City To City. We’re crowdsourcing footage for the music video, so feel free to film us playing it and send it over! And if you’re a label interested in releasing/distributing, please reply to this email!

Upcoming Shows

Because of the new album, we’re taking it easy with shows in the first months of the new year. But we’ve got sweet stuff planned around the spring release! Wanna book us?

Free shipping for albums

With a new album coming we need to make some room and get some extra funding, therefore we’re doing free shipping on all album orders! Mention AHOYAHOY in the order comment and we’ll ship it to you for gratis!


That’s it for now, next time we hope to have a new single and album pre-order for you!
Thanks for reading, till next time; Ben, Riekus & Willem

31 August 2022 ~ Comments Off on Back at it

Back at it

It feels incredible being an active band again! The first run of shows we did was amazing: kicking off at our own Shred Fest, joining Bad Religion at Paradiso and supporting Pussy Riot in these troubling times. The rest of 2022 looks quite promising, and 2023 won’t be too bad either… did anyone say “album”?

First of all: we previously announced “an army of bass players” instead of one single person joining us. But after playing shows and discussing the situation with Ben and Gijs we mutually agreed that Ben is our dedicated full time bass player! We’re very thankful that Gijs helped us out in the meantime!

New Album

In 2018 we promised/threatened that we had stopped making albums. But we kept getting requests for a physical release. So after releasing a handful of digital singles we are very excited to announce a new release to our penfriends! A full length album bundling the singles and extra songs. The album is almost done, but we can’t announce a release date yet because vinyl delivery times are crazy long. We aim for a spring release, fingers crossed! We will keep you up to date, you’ll hear it here first!
(If you’re a label interested in releasing/distributing, please reply to this email!)

Merch

After selling out the Bijstand Mural shirts so quickly, we decided to make some extra, and include the Cheetah design, since a lot of people liked those as well. Find them together with our LPs/CDs, discount bundles and other goodies in our webshop!


That’s it for now, next time we’ll share more concrete news about the new album!
Thanks for reading, till next time; Ben, Riekus & Willem
