Slaves were on social media last weekend confirming work on their third studio album is now complete.
Laurie Vincent and Isaac Holman began recording their follow-up to 2016’s Take Control around a year ago, Holman telling Steve Lamacq on BBC 6Music that the conclusion of the 2017 festival season was when they were planning to reenter the studio. “We’ve got a few days off now and then we go into the studio – start getting some new stuff down,” he said.
“We’re well into writing, and then we’re in the studio for a little bit and then we go on tour up until Christmas.”
And a short post on Instagram has now marked its conclusion, the duo declaring; “Album done, sun’s still out, nice one.”
It’s all wrapped up then in time for their upcoming live shows which include Reading and Leeds in August.
