Antagonist A.D Closer To The Sun Tour May / June 2009
Auckland & Hamilton's hardcore monsters Antagonist A.D are back and set to take on New Zealand once again. Following up their release of their sophomore album 'We are the Dead', 2009 has seen Antagonist A.D touring continuously.
First up with an extensive tour of Australia in January and February with friends The Red Shore (AUS) & As Blood Runs Black (USA). March saw the band delve into unfamiliar territory hitting 5 countries throughout SOUTH EAST ASIA (Philippines, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia & Indonesia) as well as including a headlining tour of Japan.
May will see an energetic, refuelled & mature Antagonist A.D that has only gone from strength to strength.
With so many stamps in their passports & kilometres under ripped macbeths, (footwear) it's easy to see how this relatively young New Zealand band has grown into force now recognised worldwide.
And unlike every good thing New Zealand has, it's no wonder that the Australians are already trying to steal them!!
After this tour Antagonist A.D. will be heading back to Australia in June to support none other than iconic hardcore giants Earth Crisis (USA) Here's hoping they book return flights!!
