Slaves Share Second Taste Of Upcoming LP 'Acts Of Fear And Love' With New Track Chokehold

Tuesday, 31 July 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

Slaves have given us another taste of their upcoming LP.

Chokehold is the second single to be lifted from 'Acts Of Fear And Love', the first being Cut and Run. The follow up to 2016's 'Take Control' will arrive on August 17 through Virgin EMI.

While the album's debut single was a sing-along-fuelled number, complete with well placed feedback and a workout video, the latest cut is slightly more subdued. "Now I'm drunk on a night bus, meeting with an old flame," sings Laurie Vincent. 

The song's video continues the humourous tone started by its predecessor, though this time we have Isaac Holman pining over Vincent while searching for his replacement, and there are no short shorts in sight. Those auditioning include Royal Blood's Ben Thatcher, Wolf Alice's Joel Amey, Amber Grimbergen of Hinds and Blur's Dave Rowntree, among others. Check out the clip below.

The duo will play a number of in-store shows across the UK prior to their appearance at Reading and Leeds festival this summer. Head here for further details.

It’s one year since we said we’d see Tom Petty somewhere along the road, and it’s still a bitter one to swallow. We’ve had time to accept that there’s a full stop to his story, and to understand our relationship with his music in a new context, but that doesn’t mean we have to like it.

We Were Promised Jetpacks - The More I Sleep The Less I Dream (Album Review)
Thu 27 Sep 2018
Album four from Edinburgh's We Were Promised Jetpacks is, in their own words, about going back to basics. Since 2014’s ‘Unravelling’ they’ve changed management and label, both potential pitfalls, while recording was undertaken in the US with producer Jonathan Low. Running alongside these changes on ‘The More I Sleep The Less I Dream’ is the switch back to their original four man configuration and something approximating the style of their early releases.

Mon 01 Oct 2018
Remix albums don’t always work. The best examples refresh and reveal elements of the original songs, giving them new life and often broadening their appeal. When they fail, it is often because the tracks lack the integrity and consistency of the source material.
