Antagonist A.D. Through Fire 7” Release Show

Tour Information
New Zealand hardcore kings ‘Antagonist A.D.’ return to home shores for a one off show in February.

Following the release of a new 7 inch record “Through Fire” the band has their focus set on Auckland’s Whammy Bar for there belated release show.

This is catharsis. Antagonist A.D vocalist Sam Crocker shares as a somewhat relieved, yet impassioned description of the culmination of the past twelve months of hard work.

January 2020 saw the band release 'Through Fire', the first in a series of 7 EPs to contextualise the world the band currently find themselves inhabiting.

The social and political climate is so tumultuous at the moment, both in our immediate and the greater world around us. This series of 7”s addresses these times. 2018 and 2019 have been the worst years of my life. I've struggled through so much pain, my anxiety is at an all time high, misinformation, hurt, failure, regret, mistakes, repentance all amidst a rebirth of societal ignorance, racism, and misdirected anger housed inside (and fuelled by) a broken system. I want to burn it all down and start again.

The series of EPs were all recorded in Salem, Massachusetts under the watchful gaze of Kurt Ballou (Converge), and Zack Weeks at GodCity Studios; the duo's talents and the melancholic surroundings of Greater Salem only adding to the bleakness of these releases.

Antagonist A.D's new EP Through Fire is available now through Greyscale Records.

In a time where some are feeling uncertain about their place in the world, for Antagonist A.D, at least some things are known for sure. We are a political band. We are an anti-fascist band. This music empowers us all, I want to use this platform for change and growth. The series of 7”s tells a story of a renewed Antagonist A.D. a hungry band who wish to start fires, ignite and grow.

Supports for the event are yet to be announced. This show is expected to sell out (like the previous Antagonist A.D. shows at Whammy Bar) - get your tickets fast!

Close friend of the band and prominent local speaker/social activist “Richie Hardcore” will be DJing in between bands.
