Antagonist A.D Newsletter Interview
05 Oct 2008 // An interview by Shade
Thanks to Sam for answering these questions:
What is the best gig/event you have ever performed at, and why?
Umm it's really hard to say, one of my favourites will always be in Adelaide at this place called The Underground with our friends The Red Shore. Didn't expect any type of reaction and kids went crazy, it was so much fun. & I'll always have fond memories of Upsett Records shows in 2006 as well.
What is your favourite NZ venue?
Whammy Bar on K'rd or this new place we played this last weekend called The Fish House. It's in Palmy, it's actually some kids garage, thats been soundproofed and spray painted. SUCH a good atmosphere.
What can we expect to see from Antagonist A.D over the next year?
Well our new CD is out next week, and from there hopefully us playing a lot of shows, around New Zealand & hopefully other countries too.
What other NZ musicians or bands would you like to see more of, and why?
Gin Wigmore is pretty cute, I'd like to see her, (that came out kinda of dodgy right? I just mean I'd like to meet her... possibly try to impress her, & take her to chocolate boutique in Parnell... maybe walk along the beach...)
If you could, what rumour would you start about yourselves?
That we are werewolves.. or at least that I am a werewolf.
What advice would you like to give to other aspiring musicians?
Be passionate about everything you do & work hard.

ElevenfiftySeven is proud to be releasing the brand new full length album We Are The Dead on the 6th of October in both New Zealand and Australia via Melbourne label Trial & Error. This sophomore album follows 2006s’ celebrated release ‘These Cities, Our Graves’.
Antagonist A.D formed in late 2004 but after trading members & gaining direction a new redux saw the light the following year. 2005 was a dark year for New Zealand hardcore with prominent bands breaking up, crucial venues being lost & key promoters bowing out. Antagonist A.D pushed on and quickly made a name for themselves as an extremely hardworking band and breathing new life into the local hardcore scene.
