Antillectual is a Dutch melodic hardcore/punk rock band.


Antillectual is an actively touring punk rock band from Nijmegen and Utrecht, the Netherlands

Antillectual started out as four-piece punk rock band in 2000. In 2001, bass player Pieter left the band and was replaced by Falco. With this line-up, they recorded their first demo. When Falco left the band 2003, the band decided not to replace him by a new member; Yvo dropped the guitar and became the new bass player. As a three-piece punk rock band, they released their first full-length album Silencing Civilization on Angry Youth Records in 2005.[1] In 2006, Bob left the band and was replaced by Riekus. Along with their second tour in the United States, they released the Waves 7", with songs from Silencing Civilization on Side A and a preview of their second album on Side B. Their second full-length album Testimony was released in 2008 by seven independent record labels throughout Europe, The USA, Japan and Malaysia. Antillectual celebrated this release by touring relentlessly and playing No Idea Records Fest 7 in Gainesville, Florida. January 2010, bassist Yvo left the band to focus on his family, and was replaced by former Smash The Statues frontman Tom. Tom was later replaced by Tim Vantol, who was replaced by Glen later. As of 2014, the band consists of members Willem, Riekus and Toon. 2013's "Perspectives & Objectives"[2] is the bands latest release on (among others) A-F Records (Anti-Flag) and Suburban Records
