Post-Punk Band, The Antics Celebrate With New Double-Sided Release "When I'm Alone/Transmission"

Post-Punk Band, The Antics Celebrate With New Double-Sided Release "When I'm Alone/Transmission"

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Raising the bar higher and higher with each release the post-punk outfit, The Antics, are releasing their double-sided release, "When I'm Alone" and "Transmission" now on iTunes. With success at every corner, Music Connection Magazine has just dubbed the New Jersey rockers one of the Top 100 Unsigned Bands of 2014. This latest release serves as a thank you to their loyal fans that have helped make 2014 the best yet, and set the stage to announce their new EP, coming in 2015.

Opening with a dark spellbinding bass, leading to a buoyant guitar, "When I'm Alone" captures you from the start with its mystery and seductive vocals of lead singer, Luke Meisenbacher. With a deep voice and lyrics beyond his years, Luke sings of the future and possibilities with lines such as, "I want to go anywhere but back" and "the sounds I hear are the breath of my memories". Luke's low-key, calm persona is transparent in "When I'm Alone" from start to finish. Contrasting the ballad of "When I'm Alone" is the punk rock sounds of the track, "Transmission". The Antics transform the listener into an up-tempo spacey rock vibe with a glassy guitar riff and rolling drums, with a catchy hook that seems effortlessly cool.

The band sought out help from both producer Marty Munsch (Violent Society) and producer/engineer Bob Both (James Brown) of Twain Recording for the tracks and their forthcoming EP slated for a 2015 release. Each track is carried by relatable lyrics presented by Meisenbacher's powerful, haunting voice that is complimented by the band's entrancing instrumentals.

The Antics' post-punk/indie-rock sound is often accented by 60's pop, surf and garage rock - the group is certainly capable of it all. Playing their individual instruments from an early age, each member grew up in a different part of New Jersey, yet the members manage to play like they've been together all their lives. The group draws inspiration from influential musicians like Joy Division, The Strokes and The Smiths. The Antics have graced the stages of many popular New Jersey and Connecticut venues such as The Space, Crossroads and The Stone Pony and are eager to take on more. They recently expanded their live act geographically to North Carolina where the played at the NODA Festival held in Charlotte as well as SXSW 2014. The cherry on top of the successful year came from the Music Connection Magazine's announcement as one of the Top 100 Unsigned Bands of 2014.

The Antics are continuing their success and are looking forward to sharing their next EP in 2015. Be sure to grab the two song split, "When I'm Alone"/"Transmission" on iTunes and keep up with The Antics by visiting them on their official website
