Tomorrow, Antillectual will release Covers EP comprised of, you guessed it, covers. The four-song set features the band’s melodic, orgcore punk renditions of cuts from The Police, The Ramones, The Nerves, and The Stooges.
The cover art (see above) by Andy Dahlström gives a stellar preview of what’s to come with the band remaking classic artwork associated with each release (“Hanging Up The Telephone,” though originally by The Nerves, is immortalized via Blondie’s Parallel Lines rendition).
“When the cover idea surfaced, we didn’t feel like covering the bands we grew up on,” says vocalist/guitarist Willem. “Most of them are still around or reunited. It seemed much more interesting to go back some more generations and find early punk songs with a melodic vibe to them.”
The self-released EP will be pressed on black 7″ vinyl and distributed in North America via Thousand Islands Records.
