The Sacramento-based band features Jonny Craig (Dance Gavin Dance, Emarosa) and Alex Lyman (Hearts and Hands), two artists who’ve built a name and reputation for themselves in their respective projects, but are now branching out creatively with Slaves.
Slaves will release their debut album this summer via Artery, but the band has shared a 70-second teaser, which provides both an audio and visual keyhole look into the process and the project. It should tide fans over for now. The teaser can be watched below.
It’s a birds-eye view of Slaves in the studio. Craig’s unique, critically acclaimed voice, which is drenched with emotion and rich with soul, powers the clip and offers just the right taste of what’s to come, all the while leaving you salivating for more.
“Men have been enslaving men for as along as we’ve had gods to hide behind,” Craig said. “Every man is a slave to what we love — whether it be women, drugs, music or sports. Through art we are all equals.”
Slaves will also embark on their first tour this May. More details regarding the trek will be announced soon.
