Hey punk rockers! We know some of you have been wondering what we are up to since we played a show again last year. First of all we want to thank everybody who came out to that show. Your response has been heart-warming! While we were preparing for, and when playing last year's show, it became obvious to us that the fire still burns. So why not play a show every now and then and share the fun with you? Will we be a touring band again? No, we won't. We all have tons of stuff going on in our personal lives: family obligations, other band commitments (The Establishment) and health issues that do not allow us to do so. We will play a few dates every now and then but no more than 2 shows a year, max. This year we will play BLEAK LIFE 5 in Canada on may 18th and we are happy to announce we will be joining The Restarts on stage in Haarlem on June 8th. That will be all we are doing on stage in 2018, and we are very much looking forward to seeing all of you again and do what we all like doing most: get drunk and pogo!

All good things must come to an end. After 16 years, 5 LPs, 3 7"es and a few split records, 426 shows in 17 countries and 225 cities, we decided to call it quits. Antidote has been a great band to play in. We have traveled a lot, met many cool people, seen great bands and had a lot of fun. Thank you for your support over the years, and we'll see you soon!
