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.

Releasing singles gives us the opportunity to address “hot” topics immediately. We couldn’t bring you FEVER at a better (or worse?) moment: climate change protest is gaining attention worldwide. Check the beautiful FEVER video, new merch and lyrics & liner notes below. We hope to catch you at one of the shows!

FINALLY TO FINLAND!

Finland was on our bucket list for a long time, especially since we had fun times in other Nordic countries in the past. We’re very excited going there in October for the first time ever! New territory means making new friends and watching new bands, this will be sweet!

Antillectual in Turkey

We LOVE going new places, especially places we never expected to play our music and/or where punk rock music is less common. This November we get the chance to play 4 shows in Turkey; in Ankara, Istanbul and Izmir. We’re looking forward a lot to making new friends and checking out the Turkish scene. Thanks to Parazit Kolektif for arranging all this.

Check our shows section for all info and details.

09 July 2019 ~ Comments Off on If You’re Not Outraged

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!
