2018 has been a landmark year for SLANDER. With a new chapter ahead, the bass duo can now reflect on this year as a list of achievements, including the recent launch of their Gud Vibrations label with NGHTMRE and a slew of hit tracks. Approaching the end of the year, they fire off a neck-breaking EP, The Headbangers Ball, via Monstercat.
The latest single, “Hate Being Alone” with Dylan Matthew, completes the EP alongside their recently released “Running To You” with Spag Heddy featuring Elle Vee and “You Don’t Even Know Me” with RIOT. The compilation’s three tracks are packed with buzzing pads, gritty-synth and pulsating baselines. However, each track features unique elements – the soothing melody and enthralling vocal in “You Don’t Even Know Me,” the piercing, frenzied rhythm in “Running To You” and the heartfelt lyrics and heavy percussion in “Hate Being Alone.”
They are in the midst of headlining their Headbangers Ball North American tour, hitting major cities like Las Vegas, Washington, D.C., Miami, Houston, and Chicago and taking over festivals like Ultra Mexico and Holy Ship! 12.0. They will kick off the new year on January 11th with two nights of shows at the legendary Hollywood Palladium. Catch them in a city near you!
