Hanging on the Telephone is available via all usual suspects, find it on Spotify, Youtube, Bandcamp and all the others through antillectual.com/hangingonthetelephone. Our new single is from the same recording session as our version of The Police’ Truth Hits Everybody: drums and bass are recorded by our live sound tech Emiel Thoonen; vocals, guitars and hammond recorded by Menno Bakker at Amsterdam Recording Company, who also recorded our debut album Silencing Civilization. Mixed by Menno Bakker at ARC, mastering by Carl Saff. The video is created by Tijs VL, production by Roos de Huu. The artwork is from the one and only Andy Dahlström from Satanic Surfers; what a team!

If You’re Not Outraged

Today we bring you the 4th edition of our singles series: If You’re Not Outraged! An energetic, urgent track with an anti-fascist message. Critical times still call for critical culture!

Artwork If You're Not Outraged

Extreme right wing ideologies are growing. Alt-right, identitarian movements and populism are proof that the far right wing is on the rise again. Just to be clear: we think that’s a bad thing. As a result the anti-fascist (re)action and movement is growing too. Just to be clear: we think that’s a good thing. Anti-fascism is not a crime!

Check this special page for If You’re Not Outraged via all platforms (Spotify, Youtube, Bandcamp, etc), the lyrics and liner notes. Join us for a Q&A about our new single today (Tuesday, July 9) at 20h00 CET on our Youtube channel.

Video If You're Not Outraged

This is the first release from our recording session with Tim van Doorn at Big Dog Recordings in Antwerp, Belgium, more to come! Mastering by Nico van Montfort at XPZ Sound. The music video is created by Bram Bergs. Single artwork by Ruben Swieringa.

Merch

To have appropriate new merch our friend Thomas at Dark Roast adapted a picture of a demonstration by the Neo-Nazi Nordic Reich Party in Växjö, Sweden in April 1985. A Polish-Swedish passerby (whose mother had been sent to Auschwitz) could no longer resist swinging her handbag at the nazis. FairTradeMerch made beautiful organic, fair-trade and vegan shirts of the design. Orders come with free downloads of all our singles, and you can still get older merch with a discount if you use NEWSLETTER25 as coupon code!

Antillectual – Truth Hits Everybody (The Police cover)

We’re very excited to present you our third single: TRUTH HITS EVERYBODY, a cover of The Police!

In total we recorded 4 covers of “the roots of our roots”. Most of the bands we grew up on are still around or reunited, so we didn’t feel like covering those. It was much more interesting to go back one more generation and find early punk songs with a modern melodic vibe to them. Truth Hits Everybody was the first song that came to mind. It felt like something that would fit our style very well. We’ll release the covers sporadically, among our own singles.

 

The video is shot in our hometown Nijmegen by Ruben Smulders. The Police’s debut album Outlandos d’Amour from 1978 inspired the artwork of the single, created by our friend Andy Dahlström (Satanic Surfers’ bass player). Drums and bass recorded by Emiel Thoonen; vocals, guitars and hammond recorded by Menno Bakker at Amsterdam Recording Company. Mixed by Menno Bakker at ARC, mastering by Carl Saff.
