The band’s third album reflects that fear and love may actually be the biggest motivators in the world at the moment. Following the release of their recent single ‘Cut and Run’, Slaves have crashed back onto the scene with the announcement of ‘Acts of Fear and Love’.

The band have experimented with their style, without any boundaries; embracing pop song writing and tender moments alongside the more traditional hardcore riffs and scream-along choruses.

The record has a more personal feel, which is also evident in the artwork and accompanying photos. On the album cover is Bart, Laurie’s son and it is the first time the band have been on their own artwork too.

“If a kid didn't wanna be in a photo you'd sense it. There's something about Bart. He gave us permission,” Laurie says.

The band will be at Nottingham’s favourite Rock City this evening (10 Nov) - check back soon for our review!
