Slaves, the new project of Jonny Craig, formerly of Dance Gavin Dance and Emarosa, will release their much-anticipated debut Through Art We Are All Equals on June 24. To get you excited for this release, ARTISTdirect has partnered with the band and Artery Recordings to share the new song "The Upgrade PT. II" and its lyric video.
So go ahead - immerse yourself in the Slaves experience, both audio and visual.
We'll forewarn you—it's amazing. ARTISTdirect.com editor in chief Rick Florino put it best, "Slaves turn dreamscapes into heavy alternative bliss unlike anything else out there. Welcome to one of the year's best pieces of Art!"
The pre-order merch bundle is from MerchNow.
We love the monstrous and monolithic opening --which reminds us a bit of Meshuggah-- and the contemporary prog swirl that follows. It's so fucking good !
If you like Chiodos or Coheed and Cambria, or Jonny Craig's past efforts, well, then meet Slaves, your new favorite band!
