Вони виступали з Боно та Едж з Ю2 в Києві та Лондоні, вони випустили спільну пісню з Едом Шираном та виконали її разом  у Варшаві.

Тепер вони виступатимуть у 13 містах, таких як: Філадельфія, Вашингтон, Нью-Йорк, Бостон, Монреаль, Торонто, Детройт, Чикаго, Сіетл, Сакраменто, Сан-Франциско, Лос-Анджелес, Маямі.

Ed Sheeran Teams Up With Ukrainian Band Antytila

Ukrainian band Antytila (АНТИТІЛА) has joined with Ed Sheeran to release a remix of Sheeran’s track “2step”.

Antytila previously made headlines when they requested Ed Sheeran to perform remotely from Kyiv to benefit the Concert For Ukraine, which took place at the end of March.
The band stated via TikTok, “Through music, we want to show the world that Ukraine is strong and unconquered. We’ll fight and sing for victory in front of the whole world that supports us.”

Now the artists have officially teamed up for the remix which will drop this coming Monday May 2nd.
Antytila has contributed a new section to the song, which highlights the need to hold on to hope whilst being apart from loved ones. Antytila frontman Taras Topolya told The Times (UK) that his lyrics were inspired by the distance from his family during the conflict. Tapas, who is married to fellow Ukrainian singer, Alyosha has been apart from his family since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine began in February. Alyosha has relocated to the United States with their three children.

Three of the members of Antytila have been fighting on the front lines in Ukraine, while two others have been working as civil volunteers in Kyiv helping citizens find the resources they need. Topolia has most recently been fighting and working as a paramedic in and around the Ukrainian city of Kharkiv.
Antytila was formed in 2007 and has released six studio albums. Their plans for a summer tour in 2022 were halted upon Russia’s invasion.

Be sure to check out the remix of “2step” when it drops on Monday.
