    Italy, Russia and Boy Sets Fire

    As we promised before, we are gonna play our asses off in support of the release of "Start From Scratch!". We are going to Italy and Russia on our own and we will tour across Europe with Boy Sets Fire, over 50 shows in total. But first: have you checked our new album yet? Stream or download (pay-what-you-like) it here or buy a CD or LP from our webstore.

    * Italian tour
    * Russian tour
    * Support for Boy Sets Fire across Europe
    * More shows

    Italian tour

    We have been to Italy before, but never this extended. The guys at No Reason Records really did an awesome job getting us shows all over Italy:

    24-03 SWI, Basel / Sommercasino
    25-03 ITA, Torino / United
    26-03 ITA, Castiglione delle Stiviere / Arcidallò
    27-03 ITA, Bologna / Lazzaretto

    05-04 SWI, Oberburg / Müllers `Place w/ Your All Time Favourites
    06-04 GER, AVAILABLE!

    Russian tour

    Since our new album was released in Russia by Angry Chuck Records, that seemed a good excuse to go there. Neither one of us has ever been there, so we are excited as little kids:

    27-04 RU, Ramenskoe / Slam
    28-04 RU, Tula / Wekino
    29-04 RU, Moscow / Democracy
    30-04 RU, Vladimir / CB
    01-05 RU, Ryazan' / Dom Kul'tury
    02-05 RU, St. Petersburg / Vegan Club
    03-05 RU, TBA

    Support for Boy Sets Fire across Europe

    Speaking of little kids: when we were young(er) we grew up on Boy Sets Fire's music and now we are extremely happy to announce we will be doing the support for their reunion tour. There are still some dates (without Boy Sets Fire) to be filled, so please get in touch if you can help us out:

    Nov 19, 2009

    Looking back on 2011 proves we had a busy year. We did around 110 shows, including the support for Boysetsfire on their reunion tour, for Rise Against on their biggest German show to date (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YuJBrMljfEs), and for De Heideroosjes on their farewell tour. 2011 brought us to new places like Russia, Greece, Hungary and Scotland, and saw us play at Eurosonic/Noorderslag, Riez Open Air and the Jupiter Singfest for the first time. The year started with our van passing the 500.000 km mark, and we ended the year with a steady 545.000 on the meter. This does not even include our trips to Russia and Greece, which we did by plane.

    We sure made a lot of miles in 2011, literally and figuratively. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who helped make this possible: promoters, people coming to the shows, helping hands on tour, and in special Sylvia and Jacho at Destiny, Glenn and Sandro at Mighty Vision, Vladimir and Sergej at Play It Loud, Apostolis at WAK, Etjen at Just Like Your Mom for always thinking along and our steady tour-help Thomas.

    Something we are neither proud nor ashamed of: this year we played with 4 different bass players (thank you Tom, Tim and stand-in Koen!), resulting in Glen as our steady new bass player. In 2011 we also released our first ever music video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-j0PJpUmU50


    While we can look back happily on a busy and hectic 2011, we prefer to look forward and focus on what is yet to come. Here’s what we have planned for 2012 so far. More to come!

    New Website

    On January 1st we launched our new website at http://antillectual.com, something we’ve been looking forward to for a while. If you want to know what is going on with us, listen to our albums, check our tour dates or just get in touch, our website is the most trustworthy place to go. Subscribe yourself to its feed (http://antillectual.com/feed) and be up to date all the time.


    More new territory: On February 1st our latest album “Start From Scratch!” will be released in South America through Undermusic Records (Mute, Forus, End of Pipe). South America has been on our radar for a long time now, and we’re very glad to get our music out there. A South American tour will follow.

    Upcoming shows

    In the first months of the new year we will be playing in Germany a lot. These are our upcoming shows:

    JAN 11 GER Münster, Lorenz Sud
    JAN 12 GER Aachen, Headquarter
    JAN 14 GER Lindern, Teestube
    JAN 16 GER Mainz, Kulturcafe
    JAN 25 GER Frankfurt, 11er
    JAN 26 GER München, Glockenbachwerkstatt. w/ Grizzly Tours
    JAN 27 AUT Innsbruck, PMK. w/ 7 Years Bad Luck
    JAN 28 GER Regensburg, Alte Mälzerei. w/ Glorious Thieves, Red Button
    FEB 16 GER Saale (Halle), VL Ludwigstrasse
    FEB 17 GER Kamen, JKC
    FEB 18 GER Braunschweig, B 58
    MAR 3 NL Zeist, De Peppel. w/ The Living Daylights, Sidewalk, Life's Too Short For Us
    APR 14 GER Köwerich (Trier), Rock im Kabuff (Jugendheim). w/ Finding Faith, Corman, A Hurricane's Revenge

    Not close enough? Want to book us in your city? Email us: [email protected]

    New album

    Maybe the most exciting news for 2012 is that we will be working on a new album. We are currently writing new songs and playing them into shape. Recordings will follow next winter the soonest. We’ll be playing these new songs on stage too, so come hear for yourself at a show and let us know if you like it!


    If you want us to stay an active, recording band in 2012 please support us through our merch and albums available at our webshop (http://antillectual.com/store). Other ways to make the world go round for an independent band: follow us on www.facebook.com/antillectual , www.twitter.com/antillectual or spread the word by mouth about all our music on http://music.antillectual.com (for free or pay-what-you-like). Much appreciated!

    Thanks a lot for bearing with us in the past year. See you in 2012!

    - Willem, Glen and Riekus

    Transatlantic tour and fresh old releases

    While it may seem that we are laying low (our last tour was in December) we are actually planning more than ever: tours, releases and new recordings!

    * Fest 11 + USA Tour
    * Re-releases “Start From Scratch!” and “Testimony”
    * Pre-production, recordings and EP
    * New zippers and shirts

    Fest 11 + USA Tour

    Can we get a drum roll please? The biggest and best news by far is the tour that we have planned for October and November. After 4 years of absence, we will finally return on American soil. We have been confirmed to play the almighty Fest 11 in Gainesville, and we will be touring the USA on our way down to Fest. Details to be confirmed.

    Re-releases “Start From Scratch!” and “Testimony”
    Since all LPs of “Start From Scratch!” and all CDs and LPs of “Testimony” are out of stock, we decided to run a second pressing of both albums together with our friends at Shield Recordings. The 350 gatefold LPs of “Start From Scratch!” will be “seein’ red” and “Testimony” will see a reincarnation of 250 LPs in the “grey area”. The 500 “Testimony” CDs will be a jewel case edition.


    Pre-production, recordings and EP
    Having written half a new album already, we decided to book some studio dates. In May we will record these songs to prepare ourselves for the recordings of our fourth full length album next winter. 2 of those new songs will end up on an EP which will be released later this year. Details to be confirmed.

    New zippers and shirts
    No re-release here! Freshly designed zipped hoodies and T-shirts! Stay up to date and support us by ordering a shirt, zipper, a repressed album or a nice package of shirt+album.


    Shirts have the King Kong print on the front. A limited amount of these shirts, with a red and black print on white, will be sold by Fairtrademerch at this year’s Groezrock Festival. Speaking of Groezrock: make sure to stop by Shield Recordings and No Reason Records on the market, and treat yourself to one of Mom’s Veggie Burgers.
