Anti Vigilante are a Hardcore/Ska band from Milton Keynes, as if you didn’t know. They’re releasing a new album entitled ‘Tempest’ on 4th July. With Guitars will bring you more on the Tempest album a little nearer to release. But find below the first offering from ‘Tempest’.
ANTI VIGILANTE are a four piece skacore mash up from Milton Keynes. Since forming in 2004 the band has played extensively across the UK alongside the likes of Leftover Crack, Strung Out, The King Blues and Ghost of a Thousand. They have also embarked on UK wide tours in support of The Skints,Capdown, Voodoo Glow Skulls, Random Hand, The JB Conspiracy and We Are The Union, not to mention headlining tours in their own right.
Their style owes as much to low strung, hardcore noise as it does to the UK skacore scene that came before them, creating a dynamic that shows potential to achieve a great deal in their genre.
ANTI VIGILANTE released their debut album ‘Secure Beneath the Watchful Eyes’ to resoundingly positive feedback from both gig goers and zines as well as receiving multiple plays on BBC Radio 1’s punk rock show. They look set to build upon the reputation they’ve forged in the UK underground with the release of their second album ‘Tempest’.
ANTI VIGILANTE took the first half of 2011 out to recover from the passing of Drummer, Oli Smith. Driven by the loss of both a band mate and best friend ANTI VIGILANTE are back with greater determination and conviction and are ready to hit the road harder than ever.
