After the release of “As Soon As There Is Justice” on December 27th of 2010, AV was accepted with an immense response in the underground Punk/Ska scene in Europe and the United States, which lead to the creation of a Live Band to take on Mexico City. Alan Razo, (LNG/SHT member and Armando’s brother), was immediately chosen to be the bass player of the live band along with José Luis Marroquin on Drums. After nearly 3 months of rehearsals, AV played its first live show at a friend’s party in Mexico City on April 9th 2011.
During 2011, Anti-Venöm was part of several worldwide compilations, but also became a full member of the Independent labels Nación Libre (Mexico), 20 Chords (Mexico) and Unknown?Records (Canada). In October 6th, Anti-Venöm released a single entitled “Vampires” Featuring the talented Scottish producer & singer INFKTD from the band From The Cradle To The Rave and front man of many successful projects like Capitol 1212, My Own Religion & Cot Death. The single was accepted immediately as the new underground anthem by fans of the Skacore genre, but also earned new fans for the band, making them on pair with other independent artists the genre.
After several shows and small tours in Mexico, Anti-Venöm decided to release a free EP by the name of “Planet of The Apes”. Released on February 29th 2012 by Riot Ska Records, Unknown?Records, Nación Libre and Riotstep. The response of the fans to POTA was overwhelming despite the darker themes and sounds of its release. In September 7th of 2012, AV released a three song EP entitled “Part II: Generic” featuring a song with New Zealand’s Ska/Rap band, Night Gaunts and Chris Keating, owner of Riot Ska Records. Meanwhile in Mexico, the band was having internal problems with their current Drummer, José Luis and his personal schedules, which became a serious problem once the band had to cancel several shows. José Luis was later replaced by Adrián Bolaños on Drums (MDD, Día Final & Papá Enojado) in 2013.
On July 12th of 2013, the band was part of “A Benefit Compilation In Love & Solidarity With Kostas Sakkas”, featuring punk acts from around the globe, such as Doom, Oi Polloi, Leftover Crack, and Union Jack and by November 27th released their latest EP entitled “Tr e s” featuring bands like The Stupid Stupid Henchmen and Dead Rejects from New York City, deciding to take a break from recordings and to focus on their live performances, alternative projects and personal lives. In august 16th of 2014, the band played for the first time in El Multiforo Cultural Alicia, the biggest venue in Mexico City dedicated to underground and alternative music, opening for the German Ska Punk band Wisecräcker. Since then, the band have continuously played live shows inside their country and are still active in compilations and collaborating as featuring artist for bands all around the globe (Body Lice, LNG/SHT, C-Rave and more). The band have stated that they will start recording new material by the end of 2015, aiming for the release of their second full length by 2016.
