Antibalas Signs With Anti-Records

Anti- is pleased to announce the signing of diverse Brooklyn-based musical collective Antibalas. The acclaimed, socially and politically-minded group – with an active lineup of about a dozen musicians – recently wrapped work in Chicago with producer John McEntire of Tortoise on its March 2007 debut for the label.

Pushing itself beyond the revolutionary Afrobeat blueprint the group used as a launching pad in the late ’90s, Antibalas – with the help of McEntire (Stereolab, Tom Ze, Richard Buckner, Smog) – explores and unleashes new sonic elements on its forthcoming release. The new disc and label deal illustrate Antibalas’ penchant for taking chances, building on its acclaimed live shows, back catalog and genre crossing collaborations.
