Antillectual release “Truth Hits Everybody” (The Police Cover)

Antillectual have released the third instalment of their ongoing singles series, this time opting to release a cover of The Police. The track, “Truth Hits Everybody”, is out now in all the usual places.

Antillectual guitarist Willeme explains the decision to put covers in with their own material in the series:

“We wanted to experiment and record other people’s music. Most of the bands we grew up on are still around or reunited, but we didn’t feel like covering bands that are still active. It was much more interesting to go back one more generation and find early punk songs with a modern melodic vibe to them. Truth Hits Everybody was the first song that came to mind. From the first time I heard it, it felt like something that would match with our own style very well. Not surprisingly the song appeared to be in a key we use a lot ourselves.”

The video for the track is shot in Antillectual’s hometown Nijmegen and was inspired by The Pomusic video for So Lonely, also from The Police’s debut album Outlandos d’Amour from 1978. That album was also the inspiration for the artwork of the single, created by Andy Dahlström (Satanic Surfers’ bass player). The audio is recorded by the band’s sound tech, Emiel Thoonen. Mixing and additional instruments are done by Menno Bakker who also recorded Antillectual’s debut album Silencing Civilization and many legendary Dutch punk bands such as Undeclinable Ambuscade, NRA and Seein’ Red. Carl Saff (Iron Chic, Touché Amore, Small Brown Bike) did the mastering of the track.

Antillectual release new single “The Invisible Hand Meets the Visible Fist”

Dutch punk band Antillectual released their second single of the year: “The Invisible Hand Meets the Visible Fist”. The band decided to quit making albums and only release single songs. Earlier this year they released “Heads You Win, Tails We Lose”.

Singer/guitarist Willem has this to say about their newest single:

We live in a world that dictates that you either produce commodities under sketchy circumstances, or buy them. But there is a third way, not harming the world and its living creatures and that is ethical consumption. Make sure to know who you support with your money!
