Slaves release their third album Acts of Fear and Love via Virgin EMI/AMF Records. The band’s third album reflects that fear and love may actually be the biggest motivators in the world at the moment. Working with previous collaborator, producer Jolyon Thomas (Royal Blood, U2) in Brussels, the band opened themselves up to a new sonic territory. Not concerning themselves with other people’s expectations of what a Slaves album should sound like the band have experimented with their style, without any boundaries; embracing pop song writing and tender moments alongside the more traditional hardcore riffs and scream-along choruses. Standouts include the joyous thrash of Bugs, the sprawling and tense title track and the Blur mixed with Weezer esque banger Chokehold.
