Summertime and the Slackin Is Easy

By dave

hey everyone,
as the dust settles from our busy spring, the slackers are getting some well deserved R & R.

but our rest will not be for long, as august comes around we will resume our mission of bringing word of the Slackers' new cd, the great rocksteady swindle to the world. first up, will be a festival heavy tour of europe including stops in spain, the uk, belgium, holland, germany, and norway. second, as september rolls around, we will be ending summer with our traditional new york and boston boat gigs. third, in october we will be hitting the midwest and canada with extended touring through ohio, michigan, pennsylvania, missouri, indiana, illinois, ontario, and quebec. We havent seen those guys for a while and looking at getting reacquainted.

In case you've been under a rock somewhere, our latest cd is the Great Rocksteady Swindle. There are a million ways to hear it. You can get it as a cd, vinyl, or as a download.

In other news, we have put out a new whatevski live release, 'live on the west side.' it features music from recent release parties. check it out at www.whatevski.org

Also, the Lost & Found vinyl is now out! check it out at the slackers' merch table or at the paper or plastic website.

and yes, although we are taking the month of july off from the slackers, we are not exactly relaxing. Vic is playing solo gigs with the Forthrights and Vic, Marcus, and Ara are doing Sic N Mad. Agent Jay is doing several regular dj nights in manhattan and brooklyn as well as working on the next crazy baldhead album. And yes, Im doing Rocksteady 7 at two boots in brooklyn on july 16.

so its been a fun first half of the year for the slackers, lets hope the 2nd half is even better!
see you out there!

Hi everyone,

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!
