After the success of the ​Hold Your Horses/It’s All Kicking Off for Honkies!!!11!!!! EP via Permanent Creeps,​ back in January, ​Honkies ​have been gigging extensively throughout the year at some of London’s grittiest toilet venues and have already shared the stage with rising acts including: ​Peeping Drexels​, ​Phobophobes​, ​black midi​, ​Black Country, New Road​, ​FEET ​and ​The Rhythm Method​, to name a few.

Recorded at the infamous ​Sam & Rachel Studios​, ​Honkies ​new single ​‘Slugs’ ​is a twisted country tale that ​deals with themes of alienation, general confusion at the world, people, societal inequality and gentrification. The loose and ramshackled trademark honkies sound is very much still retained with all the chewy bits included.​ Watch here

Sutcliffe ​explans:

“The lyrics are an ode to attending bad social functions for the sake of spending time with good people– mostly on cocaine.”

‘Slugs’​ will be available digitally on all platforms via​ Honky-Tonk​ and will be pressed as a limited run of 7″ singles via ​T-Bar ​records to be released on the 16th.
