Hot on the heels of their third top ten album, ‘Acts of Fear and Love’Slaves are back with their new single ‘Magnolia’. The track comes just before the boys head out on their biggest UK headline tour to date.


A slab of catchy, grungy guitar pop, ‘Magnolia’ is both a sneering take down of suburban consumerism, as well as a tongue-in-cheek tribute to the bland and ubiquitous paint which has found its way into so many of our homes.

The video finds the band indulging their inner painter/decorator, giving the audience a little glimpse into what their life may have been like if they hadn’t pursued their career in music.

The band have just completed an extensive US tour (including playing Cal Jam last weekend) and are in the middle of a month-long European jaunt before hitting the road in the UK for what will be their biggest run of shows so far, with many of them already sold out and culminating at Alexandra Palace!

Expect big riffs, bigger beats and the sense of beer-hurling mayhem that has followed the band from their earliest shows in Tunbridge Wells boozers to the main stages at major European and US festivals.

They won’t be alone either as they’ve handpicked some of the UKs most exciting talent around for their support. Kentish punk raconteurs Lady Bird (the first signing to Slaves Girl Fight record label) will be opening the shows, while for Alexandra Palace they will also be joined by Slowthai, the Northampton born rapper currently setting the UK scene alight.
