SLOWCOACHES announce tour in Oct/Nov

 

London-based punk-fuelled trio Slowcoaches have announced their biggest headline tour to date for October and November this year. See below for details.
 
Vocalist / Bassist Heather Perkins says of the shows: "This is the biggest headline tour we've done so far, so we're excited to play some of our favourite venues and visit some new cities. It'll be the first outing for a lot of new material too. We look forward to hanging out and making a lot of mess. Please note that all of our shows are safe spaces. This doesn't mean don't mosh. It means don't be a dick.”
 
Slowcoaches also supported The Coathangers in London last week and played the Be Nothing x Teen Creeps unofficial party at The Great Escape in Brighton. Further summer shows include Tramlines and End of The Road Festivals.
 
The band’s riotous live show has been known to cause grown men to headbang so vigourously they end up headbutting the monitors before projectile vomiting all over the stage. Expect the unexpected but know you’ll be in for a wild ride. Think the grubby grunge of Mudhoney and early punk of The Germs meeting 1970s LA icons The Nerves and the sassy stance of Babes In Toyland down a dark alley somewhere in east London and you’re halfway there.
 
Slowcoaches’ debut album ‘Nothing Gives’ was released at the tail end of last year via Leisure & District and, though it could easily soundtrack a fun time, the themes of the record detail all the bad stuff that happens in life: break-ups, breakdowns, a pre-mid life crisis, a drug induced mental illness, falling out with friends, getting way too wrecked, losing your job then desperately trying to find a job… the list goes on.

Announce new single ‘Living Out’ with new music vid:

Debut album ‘Nothing Gives’ out now via Leisure & District:

Slowcoaches will release the boisterous opener from their debut album as their next single. ‘Living Out’ is “a song about feeling like you’re at a dead end. It's about wanting to change your life but procrastinating because it’s easier to just repeat the same patterns over and over,” frontwoman Heather Perkins comments. “It’s about being skint, and depressed and having no motivation. Being stuck at a desk or behind a bar and feeling like there must be more out there. It's about getting out of work and going to get smashed and waking up and dragging yourself back in to it and not giving anything or taking anything and just existing in an endless vacuum that you can’t step out of.” The video to go with is a typically tongue-in-cheek affair featuring Heather in a bath. “This video is about the fact that I Iove baths and I hate going to work,” she says. “But sitting in a cold bath for 6 hours to shoot this has made me hate baths too so now I hate baths and I hate work.”
 
When the London-based punk-fuelled slack metal trio aren’t rocking up to women only biker festivals out in the wilds of Wales, they’re laying critter-infested Hackney Wick warehouses to waste while people almost fall out of windows, or causing grown men to headbang so vigourously they end up headbutting the monitors before projective vomiting all over the stage. Think the grubby grunge of Mudhoney and early punk of The Germs meeting 1970s LA icons The Nerves and the sassy stance of Babes In Toyland down a dark alley somewhere in east London and you’re halfway there.
