Here it is! The new Harsh Realms / Coma Commander Split 7″! Available now on Shield Recordings & Lost Youth Records. Recorded by Tim van Doorn at Big Dog Recordings. Mastered by Jochem Jacobs at Split Second Sound. Vinyl available in the Harsh Realms webstore.
The last year Antillectual has been very busy creating a new album behind the scenes. On July 29 the band will release full length album “ENGAGE!”. Living in a world that is coping with conflicts and crises it is time to engage! Critical times call for critical music.
Antillectual has taken a completely new approach to creating and perfecting their sound. Not only does the band have the best line-up to date, for the (pre)production of the new album the band created an all-star team covering the loud music area from left to right, from poppy to obscure. Songs are more fine-tuned than before; even more thought and effort is being put in. Of course there is still that typical Antillectual flavor. Yet, new toppings and deeper layers have been added, which will be discovered after taking some more bites from the new Antillectual pizza. To top it off: BoySetsFire’s Nathan Gray and Strike Anywhere’s Thomas Barnett make their appearance on “ENGAGE!”.
The album comes out in Europe through Redfield Records (Gameface, Eskimo Callboy, John Coffey), in Asia through Waterslide Records (Literature, Steve Adamyk Band, Bangers) and in South America through Fusa Records (Nitrominds, Adrenalized, Kacttus).
Music video “Racist Rash”
“Racist Rash”, the first single from the album, will be released on May 23. The music video is shot by documentary filmmaker Harko Wubs. Album pre-orders will start on the same day. A trailer for the music video can be found here:
