Canadian Doom/Punk/Psychedelic band SLOWPOKE stream the second single – “Slumlord” from their debut self-titled album via The Ripple Effect which will be released on all platforms on July 31st.
The track can be heard here.
Slowpoke adds: “Slumlord is a straight up punk tune with a twist. It was written after an experience Ben Chapman-Smith had with a landlord in St John’s and serves as a cathartic release from all the frustrations of renting from unqualified and opportunistic landlords.”
Slowpoke are set to release their debut self titled LP August 22nd 2021. The LP was recorded mixed by Rick Hollett at Redhouse Recording in NL Canada (sHeavy, Hey Rosetta!) and mastered by Chris Keffer (Black Keys, Cheap Trick) at Magnetic North Studio in Utah, USA. Slowpoke adds “It’s been a privilege working with such a talented team. We worked hard on the album and we can’t wait to get it out there.”
Slowpoke’s self-titled debut runs the gamut of heavy genres. It features epic, psychedelic passages that transition to fast punk rock, righteous riffs, fuzz-laden doom and some straight up rock and roll. Slowpoke keeps things interesting with progressive songwriting and by drawing from a wide range of inspiration including bands like Clutch, The Melvins, Muse, Queens of the Stone Age, Black Sabbath and many more.
