Antarctigo Vespucci is an indie rock band composed of Chris Farren of Fake Problems and Jeff Rosenstock of Bomb the Music Industry.[1]

Farren and Rosenstock began recording as a band in early 2014 with their debut EP Soulmate Stuff, with Benny Horowitz of The Gaslight Anthem on drums.[2] They released their first full-length, Leavin' La Vida Loca, in 2015.[3]

The band explains their name as a joke: "Amerigo Vespucci is the guy who discovered America so it stands to reason that Antarctigo Vespucci would be the guy who discovered Antarctica."[4][5]

On August 22, 2018, it was announced that the band had signed to Polyvinyl Record Co[6].
