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.

Jeff Tweedy - WARM (Album Review)
Thu 13 Dec 2018
Jeff Tweedy’s first collection of solo songs adds up to a gentile album of warm Americana that stumbles along in joyous reverie and elegant inebriation. It’s a fine turn from the Wilco frontman, whose band’s 25 year musical catalogue has sometimes fallen flat, but whose previous album—2016’s ‘Schmilco’—seemed to reinvigorate and freshen their sound. These good vibes have continued on 'Warm'.
I Feel Like We Only Just Got Here: How Hop Along Fell Into Place On 'Bark Your Head Off, Dog'
Fri 14 Dec 2018
td#right {display:none !important;} Illustration: Sam Davies   The train is late. The trains are always late. Table the lost minutes. I absent-mindedly scroll Twitter in a glass shelter as the December cold gets its claws in. Before skipping over a review of the latest Jungle Book remake I’m stopped mid-feed by an autoplay video. Julia Roberts dances in a subway carriage for the New York Times. She grins, the plastic chairs smile back with yellow and orange teeth. The sound is off—my headphones are still playing Hop Along’s Not Abel. The weird thing is, that song won’t yield the floor. Instead it steps in to lead.
