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.

Thom Yorke - Anima (Album Review)
Wed 03 Jul 2019
Photo: XL Recordings In the ‘90s and ‘00s, Radiohead were probably the world’s best rock band. Capable of generation-defining stadium bangers alongside heavily experimental sound happenings, the Oxford natives managed to maintain a stunning degree of creative integrity at a time when their contemporaries were falling over each other to sell out. ‘Anima’ is Thom Yorke’s third solo album, and it’s easily his most accomplished to date. Arguably, it’s his best work since Radiohead’s ‘In Rainbows’.
