Slaves have a new single, Feed The Mantaray, due out on March 23rd. It’s taken from their debut album ‘Are You Satisfied?’, which is due out on June 1st. Check out the brilliant video for the single above, directed by Youth Hymns & Slaves themselves.

As well as the A side – Feed The Mantaray – The single also has  two B sides; ‘OK’ and ‘I Shine My Shoes With A Dirty Vest’.

The ‘Are You Satisfied?’ album, we’re told…

“…is a colourful, funny and often riotous riposte to the dreary mood of Austerity Britain and brilliantly captures the nation’s frustrated but keep on partying attitude.

“With a reputation for raucous, chaotic and energetic live shows, Slaves frantic urgency is captured in rousing anthems like ‘Cheer Up London’ and ‘Do Something’ as well as previous singles ‘Hey’ and ‘The Hunter’.”

The band are on the NME tour which starts in Nottingham tomorrow and you can expect a review on these pages on Wednesday.

Guy is a former full time member of the Louder Than War editorial team, who's since moved on to pastures new. Music's been a large part of his life since he first stumbled across Peel on his tranny as a fifteen year old. His whole approach to music was learnt from Peel in fact, which includes having as inclusive a taste in music as possible. Guy devotes most of his time looking for new music & although he's been known to say "the only good music is new music" he pretty much accepts this is bollocks. Favourite band The Minutemen.
