NOVEMBER 5, 2018

As we gear up for a show at Bowery Electric next Sunday, November 11, with pals Royal Arctic Institute and Sleepyhead, we put our piano, congas, synths and acoustic guitar to the side to get rocked up. This fall has been full of Jam TIme and we hope to unveil something, slightly, um, different after the first of the year. Stay tuned.

It was super cool to run across this article about the lamented Maxwell's and find Antietam is on a short playlist of extraordinary quality compiled to illustrate what the sounds of Maxwell's were like. Go here to hear!

JUNE 15, 2018

Last night we jammed with old friends in Flower and new acquaintances Elk City. It was an amazing night and Band Antietam was particularly passionate, IMO. I feel lucky to be reminded on nights like that when we are in a flow and the crowd is on the wave with us that Rock and Roll can save your soul, or at least put a band aid on it for optimum healing. And I love how these revelations can be borne to you as if it's the first time you have thought it, FELT IT, as fresh as the first time a baby reaches for the Big Red Ball and grabs it! So...yeh..thanks rock and roll. Thanks restorative crowd and swell bands. Always a pleasure. Always a privilege.

SEPTEMBER 16:

After a crazy great record release party at Union Pool in Brooklyn on September 14 (watch here for video of the night very soon), all eyes turn towards Chicago!

The Sputnik party takes place there as an incarnation of the Hideout Block Party on Saturday, September 23rd, with each band sporting a member born in the year 1957 (do the math and get the subtext...). TK is the poster child of sexagenarianism for Antietam. Eleventh Dream Day (Rick Rizzo), 75 Dollar Bill (Rick Brown), Condo Fucks (Ira Kaplan), and Jon Langford (Skull Orchard) join the fun. 

In connection with the Hideout Sputnik party, the Chicago Reader reviewed Intimations of Immortality. You can read it here.

Also, check out kind words for IOI from Delusions of Adequacy here.

Last, for now, how about a listen to our second single, "I'm So Tired" here

The RAI are just the medicine for these turbulent times-their beautiful instrumentals can entrance you on the spot or carry you away to somewhere else.
