Slaves - Acts Of Fears And Love
Following the release of their recent Radio 1 and 6music playlisted single ‘Cut and Run’, Slaves have crashed back onto the scene with the announcement of ‘Acts of Fear and Love’, released through Virgin EMI/AMF Records on the 17th August. Working with previous collaborator from their Mercury nominated top 10 album ‘Are You Satisfied?’, producer Jolyon Thomas (Royal Blood, U2) in Brussels, the band opened themselves up to a new sonic territory. Not concerning themselves with other people’s expectations of what a Slaves album should sound like the band have experimented with their style, without any boundaries; embracing pop song-writing and tender moments alongside the more traditional hardcore riffs and scream-along choruses.The record has a more personal feel, which is also evident in the striking artwork and accompanying photos, taken by renowned fashion and documentary photographer, Juergen Teller.
The album is available on CD and heavyweight vinyl as well as an exclusive limited white vinyl available for indie record shops.
