Antisect - Punk Hardcore from United Kingdom - Biography & Full Album Download MP3


Antisect


Punk Hardcore Band from United Kingdom formed in 1982


Antisect are a punk rock band based in London, England. Their roots are in hardcore/anarcho punk and metal.

Formed in 1982 in Daventry, Northamptonshire, UK, their debut album, In Darkness There is No Choice, was released in 1983. 1985's follow up EP, "Out From The Void" has often been cited as a game changer amongst their genre for fusing a raw punk rock style with elements of metal.

Antisect are a significant band in the timeline of hardcore punk music, said to have been a major influence upon "black-clad, politically charged punks over the last 30 years".The band address issues including animal rights and social justice, communicating their ideas to a largely punk rock audience, and were among the instigators of the squat venue scene in the mid to late 1980s. During this time members lived the lifestyle of being either on the road or part of the vibrant London squat scene of the time. They toured extensively both in the UK and Europe and though originally splitting up in 1987, the band reformed in May 2011.

Career

Antisect were formed in Daventry, UK in 1982 and began their career playing a fast, D-beat style of hardcore punk. They performed one tour with the hugely influential hardcore punk band Discharge before taking on a more anarchist leaning political edge. The band's debut LP In Darkness There is No Choice, was released in 1983 on Flux of Pink Indians' Spiderleg Records label and reached number 4 in the UK Indie Chart. This was followed in 1985 by the release of the 7-inch single "Out from the Void", which reached number 2 in the Indie singles chart.

The band went through numerous line up changes, and as a three piece of Lyons, Bryson and Paluskiewicz, had recorded most of the material for a second album (provisionally entitled Welcome to the New Dark Ages), but it was never completed. Darker and heavier than their debut, some tracks that were going to be on this album have appeared in fledgling form on the live album Peace is Better Than a Place in History, and the 2010 release Leeds 2.4.86.

Eventually the lifestyles of the band's members took their toll to the point where it became impossible to function as a unit and they split in 1987.

In May 2011, after a 24-year hiatus the band announced its reformation and gave details of its first show which was to be at the Puntala-Rock Festival in Finland. The line up was a mixture of previous members including founders Pete Lyons and Pete Boyce alongside Laurence Windle and Tim Andrews. Joe Burwood was brought in on drums. Caz Eden (Formerly Caroline Wallis), although also back in the fold, was however, not to perform and consequently parted company with the band shortly after the first show.

Tour dates for the UK, Europe and US were announced for late 2011 and spring 2012 and in December 2011 the band returned to the studio to record a new 10-inch single, containing the previously unreleased 1982 track "4 Minutes Past Midnight" and a re-recorded version of 1985's "Out From The Void (Part 2.) This, however was a "Tour Only" release, available exclusively at the 2011/2012 shows. In March 2012 they announced that Pete Boyce had once again left the band.The band's first USA tour followed in May and June 2012 taking in venues on both the west and east coasts including a tumultuous appearance at Austins Chaos in Tejas festival. (The organiser of which had played an initial part in the bands reunion). A handful of European dates were also completed before the end of the year.

The next line-up change came with the announcement of Tim Andrews departure in July 2013. Tim's farewell appearance was at the Roadburn rock festival in Tilburg, the Netherlands in April 2013. This show marked the debut of a new visual side to the band in the form of politically charged back projections.

In July of that year it was announced that Chris Caps had become the band's new vocalist. Caps's first show was at the Hygget festival in Sweden where the band's headlining set was abandoned midway through with Pete Lyons taken to hospital for what proved to be emergency heart surgery.

After Lyons' recovery the second half of 2014 saw the band appear at Ieperfest Hardcore Festival in Belgium and return to Sweden to headline Stockholms Manglet Festival. In November they played their first shows in Russia before returning to the UK to continue recording sessions for the long overdue second LP.

In April 2016, the band announced the departures of Chris Caps and Laurence Windle and the re-arrival of John Bryson. The new line-up performed a semi secret show in Umea, Sweden in May 2016.In November 2016, Pete Lyons was the keynote speaker at the 3rd annual Punk Scholars Network Symposium at the University of Northampton.On 1 January 2017, a new track, "Black", was released exclusively on YouTube. In August 2017, Antisect signed to Rise Above Records and announced the worldwide release date of the LP The Rising of the Lights. Track listing as follows:
