 Formed in the lower east side of New York City in 1983 as part of the first wave of American Hardcore ANTIDOTE released the iconic release “Thou Salt Not Kill” soon after. After shutting down as a hardcore band in 1986 ANTIDOTE reunited as a hard rock outfit in 1988. Led by guitar player / principal songwriter Robb Nunzio & vocalist / filmmaker Drew Stone the band was heavily influenced by Guns & Roses, Judas Priest and similar bands of the era. They soon released the Garrett Uhlenbrock (The Ramones) produced album “Return 2 Burn" on Metropolis Records.  The band was a mainstay on the circuit in New York City at the time including The Limelight, The Cat Club and L’amour with many of it’s contemporaries including Circus Of Power and Blitzspeer. 1991 saw the release of "Viva Los Pendejos" but the band folded again for good in 1992. After laying dormant for 16 years in 2008 the band reunited and are now enjoying a resurgence playing a combination of both styles. A compilation of the best tracks from multiple recordings from the “Rock” era including “Return 2 Burn”, “We’re Comin Afta You” & “Road Warrior” have been compiled and remastered for this release.
