My Bed Is A Boat

By dave

Hi guys,

This November the Slackers are out on tour in Europe. We are gonna be hitting Holland, the UK, France, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, Germany, and Belgium. This is gonna be our only European tour for a while so don't miss this chance to see us out on the road. We are going to several places like Paris, Marseilles, and Rome that usually are not on our tour ittinerary.
Once again, our end of the tour party is gonna be in Sittard, Netherlands on November 24th with our traditional tour ending show at Ernestos.

We are gonna have a envelope CD version of the new EP of MY BED IS A BOAT at the Slackers' Merch table this tour. We are also gonna have limited amounts of the 45 and International War Criminal LP reissue/repackage. Plus a bunch of new tshirt designs and other items, so check out the table on this tour.

To hear some tunes from MY BED IS A BOAT go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mdtEA03t-ug&feature=youtu.be

We also just shot footage for a proper video for "MY BED IS A BOAT" and this should be coming out in 2-3 weeks.

After europe, we are gonna be finishing out the year with a "holiday tour" of the east coast including stops in New Jersey, Brooklyn, Boston, Philly, and Baltimore.



Slackers Pan-Pacific Tour

By dave

So its fall and the Slackers are back on the road again.
We got a lot of gigs coming up between now and the end of the year.
In September, We will be hitting Hawaii for the 1st time, then playing California, Nevada, Colorado, and Utah before winging across the Pacific to Japan.

In October, we are playing the Montreal Ska Fest and playing some east coast gigs in New York and Delaware.

Oct 30 - November 24 will be our European tour for 2013. We are playing the UK, Germany, France, Holland, Belgium, Austria, Spain, Italy, and Switzerland.

In December, we will finish out the year with our holiday show in Brooklyn at the Bell House, and we will also be playing several other east coast shows.

Thanks so much for all the support we received on for our "SUMMER OF BIG TUNES" fundraiser!!! It was really amazing how many of you helped us out. Thanks so much. You really helped the band with getting a whole bunch of new and old music out!

We are done with production for the 45 of My Bed Is a Boat and the limited edition CD-EP already. We are about to start production of the LP-EP and that should be ready in around a month. The Lyrics book will go to printing next week. We are working on the art for the Wasted Days Double LP and DVD and those should get done by mid-october.
We will send those out to supporters as we complete the orders. In the meantime, the download version of My Bed Is A Boat will become available through Big Tunes any day now.

We will have limited amounts of these items at the Slackers' Merch Table as they become available as well.

The Japanese version of the CD-EP is also becoming available next week I believe.

Once again, thanks to everyone for the support! Its been a long journey and we still have a ways to go!

Hi everybody, we have just begun our fundraiser/presale for a whole bunch of new releases. It is on www.bigtun.es, the same people who have been doing Whatevski Records.

We got new vinyl and new cd-ep for MY BED IS A BOAT! These are a bunch of recordings we did with TICKLAH aka Victor Axelrod at his studio in Brooklyn.

We got a repackaging of WASTED DAYS as a double lp. Originally the LP and CD versions of Wasted Days were completely different. Now you can have both on vinyl!

We also got an official Slackers lyrics book, a new live DVD from our recent secret show, custom dubplates, and "the Slackers will record your song." To get more info go to https://bigtun.es/projects/index/7

So gigging wise, we have coming up the Slackers annual NYC booze cruise, a week in New England with a festival in Quebec. We take August off and come back with a big west coast/Japan run in September!

Thanks for the support and see you at the shows.

First off, we just want to say we hope that everyone weathered the storm as well as they could. Our heart goes out to everyone who has sufferred. The Slackers managed to get through the storm ok, but many people are not. Please donate to the Red Cross to help with disaster relief. http://www.redcross.org/hurricane-sandy

Right before Sandy showed up, we were just annoucing that we are reissuing THE QUESTION on VINYL in partnership with Whatevski/Big Tunes. You can pre-order this at http://bigtun.es/projects/index/1/band Its been out of print for 12 years. We will see what the demand is and then we will know how many copies we can press up.

In other news, we have made it to Brazil and started our tour there. We will be all over the country from Natal in the northeast to Porto Alegre in the south....plus lots of gigs in the Sao Paolo area.

After Brazil, we will be playing a quick encore weekend in Florida, Nov 30 in MIAMI and Dec 2 in ST PETERSBURG. These will be our last shows in Florida for a while so so don't miss.

Then we will spend the rest of December touring the east coast. We have shows in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Long Island, Rhode Island, and finish up the year in BROOKLYN at the Bell house! See you out there!
