SUMMER WITH THE SLACKERS!

By dave

Hey everybody,

so its getting warm outside and that means its time for the Slackers to play boat shows and festivals!

We start out with a California weekend, Santa Barbara, the Ink N Iron Festival, and the San Diego.

Then its time for the Slackers annual NYC booze cruise....but this year its 2 nights!!! June 22 and June 23. Go to www.rocksoff.com and get your tix in advance. The boat is a little smaller than in previous years so it will fill up quickly!

Then coming up in July we have our Boston Booze Cruise plus a show in Washington DC.

We finish out the summer playing several festivals in UK (plus Slovenia & Belgium) as well as club dates in UK, Ireland, Austria, Germany, and France.

If you look further down the line you will see we have a bunch of American dates planned for September/October.

We have begun working on a whole new batch of tunes, some of which we have started playing out at shows.

We have a new song, a cover of 'the Wicked Must Survive' coming out on the forthcoming 'Brooklyn Rocksteady' compilation.

We will be releasing a new USB this year, a follow up to 'before there was hellcat' USB 1991-1996. It will cover 1996-2000, the period of Red Light the Question, and Live At Ernesto's. It will include all 5 hrs of music from the 2 days at Ernesto's that we made the original recordings from.

Speaking of the Question, there is a rumor that the long out of print vinyl of the Question might finally see the light of day!

Well, let's hope it comes to pass, and in the meantime, see you guys out there!

For Super Hardcore Slacker's Fans Only!

By marcus

Hey there everyone. Doing a quick post to let you serious fans out there know that we have compiled our earliest stuff into a very large and complete collection of 72 tracks that we put on a USB flash drive that looks like a credit card. The art on the card makes it look like an old demo cassette and the drive folds flat into the card to protect it. Cool huh? For guys who thrive on vinyl this is very modern for us. Anyway this collection comprises: The full CD versions of "Better late than Never" and the "Before they were the Slackers ... They were the Nods" the Slackers first 2 albums. All compilation released tracks from 93-96. Unheard since the 90's demo and alternative versions of some Slacker classics from 93-96. Unreleased but still pretty good songs that did not make it onto Better Late, Nods, and even Redlight from the same period. Live shows from The Wetlands In NYC 1993 and another local show from 95 where you can really feel the youth of the band LOL. And my favorite; rehearsal tapes!!!! Truly insightful and funny behind the scenes moments at early Slacker rehearsals. The how to count to 4 argument is really priceless and very Slackers. 72 tracks of fun, music, and history plus! I am telling you, the serious hardcore Slacker's fan, pick this up at the next show or click on merchandise on the upper left to go to Interpunk.com and get it there.
