Sacramento post-hardcore outfit Slaves have released a one-take, alternative edit to the video for ‘I’d Rather See Your Star Explode’. This version has been released as a special thank-you to their fans for getting one million views on the video released in January.
Always progressing and embracing change, the band is eager to share their new music with their ever-growing fan base. The single was a testament to Slaves’ persistence through adversity and willingness to push past any negativity. The upcoming record, produced by Erik Ron (Panic! At the Disco, Set It Off), is set to be the band’s most powerful release to date. With this video, the band wanted to express their thanks to their loyal fanbase and promise exciting new music in the following months.
The video can be watched below.
A few short months after their 2014 inception, they released their Artery Recordingsdebut, “Through Art We Are All Equals”, hitting #4 on the Billboard Hard Rock charts. Reflecting on the complexities of difficult relationships, addiction, and personal redemption, the record features Jonny Craig’s soulful vocals atop rich instrumentalism. After refining their sound and constantly writing on tour, the band released their sophomore album, “Routine Breathing”, in 2015. The record features guest vocals from Spencer Chamberlain (Underoath), Garret Rapp (The Color Morale), and Tilian Pearson (Dance Gavin Dance). “Routine Breathing” solidified their place in the scene, hitting #7 on the Billboard Hard Rock charts.
Slaves are an unstoppable force that are here to stay. Always moving forward and embracing change, the duo are eager to share their new music with their ever-growing fan base. The upcoming record, produced by Erik Ron (Panic! At the Disco, Set It Off), is set to be the band’s most powerful release to date. ‘I’d Rather See Your Stars Explode’ is just a taste of what’s to come.
The band is comprised of: Jonny Craig, Colin Vieira, Weston Richmond.
