Antillectual – Support Bands

Can music change the world? Yes, it can! Music might not turn bad folks into good folks over night, but it supports the people changing our world for the better. Songs and lyrical content confirm and strengthen people’s beliefs, which lead to the actions that improve life on earth. Fuel to flame the fire, FFO: punk, politics and a liveable planet!

SUPPORT BANDS is the final single before releasing full length album TOGETHER on May 2nd. Pre-order the album (LP/CD/tape/bundle) via antillectual.com/store!

Lyrics

A pamphlet no matter how good is never read more than once
But a song is learned by heart and repeated over and over again

Here we are
Here with comfort and helping hands
Ethical support bands

Fuel to flame the fire
Preaching to the choir
Support the movement, fight a standstill

An armor with our weapon of choice in contemporary churches
If we can’t expand our army, let’s hope its harmony emerges

Do you really think you will change anything?

We don’t do this to change someone that disagrees
We don’t do this to change stubborn nemeses
We do this so the people will not change us
Missionary work you call treasonous

Fuel the popular dissent with us

Sleep now in the fire

Liner notes

“A pamphlet, no matter how good, is never read more than once, but a song is learned by heart and repeated over and over. And I maintain that if a person can put a few common sense facts into a song and dress them up in a cloak of humor, he will succeed in reaching a great number of workers who are too unintelligent or too indifferent to read.” by Joe Hill (1879-1915), songwriter and activist.

“Oh I don’t do this to change the country. I do this so the country won’t change me.” is a quote from A.J. Muste, Dutch born American clergyman and pacifist given when a reporter asked him, “Do you really think you are going to change the policies of this country by standing out here alone at night in front of the White House with a candle?” 

Bands change people’s lives. We know they do, because other bands changed our lives before we even started this band. If we’ve ever changed one person’s life (for the better) because of our music & lyrics, that would be amazing! But, something else is equally important to us: supporting the people who already have a similar mindset. They don’t need convincing but could use some confirmation that they’re not alone, not the only one having these beliefs that might set them apart from the people in their direct surroundings.
