I just want to thank everyone for all the love we've gotten as we finish up the 1st leg of the Slackers' rocksteady swindle tour. We really couldnt have asked for a better time.
We started the tour out in california and 32 shows later we are finishing it up in boston at harper's ferry.
Its been fun sharing the new songs with you guys and we are planning on continuing our mission in august through the fall. We got festival shows and some club dates in Europe in August, followed up boat gigs, midwestern, and eastern canada dates through the end of october.
Yeh, if you havent been swindled yet, check out the latest slackers release on epitaph, the Great Rocksteady Swindle. Its available on Epitaph in the states/canada, Epitaph Europe in europe (obviously), and Disk Union in Japan. You can get it in cd or vinyl for or download it on whatevsi or itunes. Whatevski has special package versions with bonus dub tracks and live concerts.
Also, in true slacker fashion we just received the vinyl of Lost & Found (our 2009 release). Its courtesy of the lovely people at paper or plastic. It should be available soon on places like Interpunk and at the slackers merch table on tour.
We should have some more limited edition vinyl out by the end of the year. We should also have some more live recording available on whatevski.
Plus coming soon on authority music, will the be the first slackers song put into the Rock Band format, Everyday is Sunday. Yeh, its a brave new world.
So thanks for all the love we have received. We are gonna be out on the road again come august. See you then!
