They are back! Seven years after their brilliant 2002 Warp effort “Arrhythmia”, Antipop Consortium have reformed and signed to the one and only Big Dada. If you were musically attentive throughout the early ‘00s, the influence Antipop Consortium had on the hip hop underground and the wider circle of music was near-impossible to miss.
In 2001, the avant-hip hop group opened for Radiohead during the European leg of their Amnesiac tour and subsequently toured with DJ Shadow. Most recently, the group opened for Public Enemy on their "It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back" 20-years-later tour in March 2008.
After splitting due to creative differences in 2002, all three members worked on solo projects and collaborations. Seven years later, they’re ready to jump back into the mix:
“We have assessed our strengths and weaknesses, we are ready to re-form stronger and better than we have ever been before. The chemistry that we have together makes for exceptional music. It’s time to return."
The band is touring extensively in Europe at the moment and will release a new album titled "Fluorescent Black" in 2009.
