Antisect are an English anarcho-punk band, formed in 1982 in Daventry, Northamptonshire, UK. Their debut album, In Darkness There is No Choice, was released in 1983. The band were instrumental in bringing the subject matter of "animal rights" and "social conscience" to a punk rock audience and were among the instigators of the squat venue scene in the mid to late 1980s. Members lived the lifestyle of being either on the road or part of the vibrant London squat scene of the time. They toured extensively both in the UK and Europe, before finally splitting in 1987. Some of the original members reformed for a reunion tour in 2011.
