The Slaves have announced a new concert in Dublin set for late autumn, along with two other opening acts.
The gig will take place on Tuesday, November 13, at The Academy as part of their exasperatingly titled “The I Would Drive 500 Miles And I Would Drive 500 More And Then Drive 126 More Tour”.
The English punk-rock trio released their first EP Sugar Coated Bitter Truth in 2012, followed by their debut studio album Are You Satisfied? three years later. On their upcoming album the band chose to experiment their sound, mixing pop songwriting with their classic scream-along choruses. The third record, Acts Of Fear And Love, will be released on August 17. Check out ‘Cut and Run’, the album’s first track, below:
Accompanying the band will be Amyl and The Sniffers, plus Lady Bird.
Amy and The Sniffers is based out of Australia with Flightless records. They wrote, recorded and released their debut EP, Giddy Up, in a span of twelve hours during 2016. They released their second EP, Big Attraction, in 2017 under cult US label Burger Records. Currently the band has plans for a U.S. and Canada tour in autumn. Give them a listen below:
Lastly, Lady Bird is a three-piece punk band from Kent who happen to be childhood friends with the Slaves. This year they’ve brought their music stages at Leeds, Stag & Dagger and Truck Festivals. Check out ‘Spoons’ off their debut EP Social Potions below:
Tickets go on sale this Friday, August 10, at 10 a.m. for €23.50.
