Slaves have released their third album, ‘Acts of Fear and Love’.
“We’ve basically just banged ‘em out before,” Isaac says of their new album process in the new issue of Dork. “This time we decided from the off that we were going to have some proper choruses, which was a new approach.”
“We turned down a lot of A+ Slaves songs too,” Laurie adds, referencing the albums slender nine-song tracklist. “I think there’s a danger as an artist of getting a bit like, ‘Of course everyone wants to hear everything, it’s all great!’ And all that does is mean there comes a point where people are skipping tracks. I get it with albums now, I’m listening to albums that are considered great, and I’m sat there skipping certain songs.”
Read more in the September issue of Dork, which also features Spring King, Idles, Friendly Fires, Anna Calvi, Our Girl and more.
Slaves are hitting the road this November in support of the record too, with a tour that includes a night at London’s Ally Pally.
