The band that played over 1000 shows in 10 years, spawned multiple, critically acclaimed recordings and hit singles have remained busy since their breakup in September 2008. Spending almost a year working closely with Pezwa Films on their new live DVD/CD package – Melbourne’s much loved power trio Antiskeptic look set to immortalize their legendary live presence in style.
Recorded at their farewell show in Melbourne’s Hi-Fi Bar; the DVD/CD will clearly show Antiskeptic taking the same untamed raw energy and emotion that saw them become a touring staple who shared the stage with the likes of Midnight Oil, Jimmy Eat World, Eskimo Joe, Dashboard Confessional and Anberlin.
To release the DVD/CD – titled ‘Goodbye Goodnight’, the band found a new posthumous home with El Shaddai Records – The same label that brought to light Australian heavy hitters Forgiven Rival and House vs Hurricane. “We have been fans of Antiskeptic since we were kids listening to them back in ’99, so to have them as part of the El Shaddai Records family is a great honour” said label President Phil Kennedy. On working with El Shaddai Records, front man Andrew Kitchen said “I cannot wait until the release of the DVD/CD – it’s going to be a far greater legacy and tombstone than I ever thought possible. And working with El Shaddai has been both inspirational and educational from a band that thought it had been there and done that”.
The band hopes to release the DVD/CD package with El Shaddai Records early 2010 with a few special extras. “We’ve worked really hard to put something special together for the fans – From footage captured over the years, to the artwork and packaging we’ve spared no expense in making it the ultimate Antiskeptic collector’s piece.” said drummer Nick Coppin. This along with the killer live show – which featured every one of the bands singles as well as fan favourites and an emotional encore, will make the DVD/CD a must have package for both die-hard fans and casual listeners alike.
