NEW BLOOD (SWITCHLIGHT)
THE BOYS FROM BRUTALSVILLE - ANTiSEEN is both so far beyond what punk rock is usually seen as and exactly what punk rock should be.
The lack of concern about anything but what they believe, an utter disregard for mainstream success .." - NeuFutur Magazine.
As 2012 mark the return of american punk legends ANTiSEEN to European soil, Switchlight Records proudly presents the band latest release "NEW BLOOD"- a compilation of singles from 2008 - 2011 all put together into one kick-ass album - OUT ON CD & LP 4th of May!!

The CD is limited to 1000 copies and comes in a cool digipack cover.
The LP version is limited to 500 hand-numbered copies only, on ORANGE colored vinyl and includes free download code! ANTiSEEN..where do you start!? The BOYS FROM BRUTALSVILLE are nothing short but legends.
For almost 30 years they have been playing by their own rules not giving a shit about what anybody says! ANTISEEN started in 1983 with founding members Jeff Clayton and Joe Young.
Named as a mis-spelling of the term "anti - scene", meaning, against any scene that has it's own rules, code of conduct, fashion and chain of command by hip scenesters.
And as far as they are concerned - "It's only ROCK 'N" ROLL and we LOVE it!!!" The current line up consist of Jeff Clayton,Joe Young, Jon Bowman and Phil Keller.The band has done five full European tours and played all over the USA with well over 50 releases world wide! They backed up now legendary scum lord GG ALLIN on his first post - prison release "MURDER JUNKIES" & also recorded with legendary ALICE COOPER guitarist Michael Bruce.
Their live shows is nothing less than spectacular; violent bursts of musical blitzkriegs, an unhealthy dose of Pro Wrestling influence that features barbed wire wrapped baseball bats or crowns of barbwire that cause REAL bloodshed and the occasional auto self destruct finale that got them labeled "Destructo Rock" early in the group's history.
Almost 30 years later the band shows no sign of packing it in or making changes to impress any major labels.
On September 20th, 2008 the band played it's 25 year anniversary show in it's hometown of Charlotte, NC which saw fans, friends and bands from all over the world coming in for the celebration.
Is the end in sight?Who knows? Until then.........FUCK ALL Y'ALL!!!!!!!
