Continuing to churn out new music after the departure of founding member and vocalist Jonny Craig, post-hardcore outfit Slaves has just debuted a brand new track titled “Talk To A Friend.”
Following where they left off with “Prayers” and “Bury A Lie,” the band’s latest centers on how people treat themselves versus other people they care about.
“‘Talk to a Friend’ is probably my favorite song from the record,” says new vocalist Matt McAndrew. “The lyrical concept is something I’ve wanted to write for a long time. Being most unkind to yourself — saying things to yourself that you’d never say to a friend — is something I think will resonate with people.”
“Musically,” adds McAndrew, “it’s this great mix of pretty and ethereal sounds with more dark, brooding, and heavy elements. I’m really stoked with how the video turned out on this one. Our director Aaron Berkshire did a killer job.”
