    ANTILLECTUAL newsletter November 2009: WINTER BREAK

    This is the end of our winter break. Behind the scenes a lot of stuff has happened for us the last couple of weeks. And it’s about time to get out again. First of all “us” isn’t the same people anymore. Second of all: despite that our ambitions are bigger than ever. Third of all: please read on below:

    - NEW bass player
    - NEW tours
    - NEW merch and web shop

    NEW bass player
    Maybe you already read it somewhere but Yvo has decided to leave Antillectual to focus on his family. You can read his statement on our website. We are very sorry for this loss and we respect and understand Yvo’s decision. But in the mean time we haven’t sit still. Therefore we are happy to announce our new bass player: Tom. He is a long time friend of the band and better known as the singer/guitarist of the late Smash the Statues. Yvo’s farewell show, which will coincide with the Smash the Statues farewell show, will take place at the Onderbroek in Nijmegen (NL) on January 23, 2010.

    NEW tours
    Tom has been working hard to learn our set and the newly written songs. To get both our new bass player and the new songs kicked into perfect shape we planned a run of shows close to home:

    NEW merch and web shop
    Since we are almost out of shirts, patches and zippers and we have new touring plans we ordered some new merch. For the first time we will be doing girly zippers. Don’t let us down girls! If you pre-order our news designs you will get 2 free extra posters, 2 buttons, 2 stickers and 4 samplers, not a bad deal I assure you. Check out the designs and let us know what you think. Zippers come in 2 fancy colors, shirts and girlies in 3 colors.

    In case this didn’t lead you to our site yet, please reconsider, since we have a completely new merch store, which makes it even easier to get what you want.

    That’s it for now. Because of the winter people are looking for HOT stuff. And we’ve heard twitter and facebook are HOT. So if you want us to feel appreciated interact with us on Facebook and Twitter. In the next issue of your favorite newsletter you will find some news about our new album, and more new touring plans. We hope.

    Thanks, you made it, friends ‘til the end!
    Antillectual: Riekus, Tom and Willem
