Officially released through Exile On Mainstream Records this past Friday is the buoyant fourth LP by German post-rock trio, THE ANTIKAROSHI, titled, 11 Songs Mostly Written And Played On Wednesday Evenings By A Band Called The Antikaroshi. In conjunction with its release, New Noise Magazine is now playing the newest video created for the album. The video for “Interlinear” was shot and directed by Georg Petzold, filmed all across the vast expanses of New York City, adding a very casual, pedestrian view of daily life to the infectious jam.

THE ANTIKAROSHI has always worn their influences of DC punk and hardcore on their sleeves, and with each album they’ve been carving their own sound from these very origins. Following their regular rehearsals, the band locked themselves in the studio in May 2015 for two days to record eleven tracks in a 100% live setting. Perfection wasn’t the goal. There is no binding concept behind the combination of songs and neither does the album mark a closed chapter. It rather remains a snapshot of a band at a certain level, at a certain point in time. The songs on 11 Songs Mostly Written And Played On Wednesday Evenings By A Band Called The Antikaroshi.travel through emotional landscapes, swimming in melodies and crawling through disharmonics.
