THE ANTLERS

Announce ‘The Antlers In London’ live album, released 15th June via Transgressive Records

Watch their performance of Doppelgänger

Set to play Visions Festival in London 

Transgressive Records are proud to present The Antlers In London a limited edition vinyl only release, which will not be issued digitally.

The deluxe double set captures the entirety of their sold-out Hackney Empire show, centered around the glorious album Familiars released last year to rave reviews.

Album tracks Palace, Refuge and Hotel are extended into blissfully engaging pieces, reflecting different angles to the record, whilst classics from well-loved albums Burst Apart and Hospice are seamlessly incorporated into the lushly arranged set. The reverence of the audience is palpable, and the majesty of the Empire’s environment etched into the grooves.

The record will be complemented by the release of the new single Parade to radio, from the stunning album Familiars, and a selection of live videos taken from the night. Watch their performance of ‘Doppelgänger’ below.

Critical acclaim for Familiars, out now on Transgressive Records:
“Another existentially-minded beauty… Cicci’s trumpet takes the lead, tracking Silberman’s Buckley-esque croon, turning agony into something approaching ecstasy.”
MOJO – 4 Stars ****
“On their fifth abum the Brooklyn trio sound emboldened, finding room for horn sections and plaintive pianos… Familiar, yes, but The Antlers still have some exciting tricks up their sleeves”
NME – 8/10
“The Antlers’ fourth album, Familiars, adds soul to their melancholia, with mournful horns and clipped Steve Cropper-style guitar figures.”
Guardian – 4 Stars ****

“A record that demands you get to know it inside out.”
Q – 4 Stars ****

“Hauntingly beautiful.. Expansive, big on ideas and wide in scope… A lesson in gorgeous restraint”

DIY – 4 Stars ****
“Serious emotional indie-rock… A rewarding listen”
Record Collector – 4 Stars ****
“Elegantly mellifluous, Familiars is a record that proceeds very much as its own pace… This is an album that can make you weepy in the hazy blur of the wee small hours and euphoric in the fuzzy afternoon sun.”
Clash – 8/10

“Slow-burning, poised and richly beautiful… The Antlers have been responsible for a handful of the most soul-shifting moments in guitar-based indie rock over the last few years, and this should see the band cement their place in the genre’s upper echelons.”
Loud & Quiet – 7/10

“There’s an impressive depth to the instrumentation, with flurries of piano, currents of sitar, and interjections of string to remind you just how dense each recording really is.”
