Slates, Soul Mates and Susan at Beaumont Records
November 27, 2014 @ 7:30 pm
Our good buds Slates are dropping in to play a show and we couldn’t be more excited! Soul Mates and newcomers Susan will be rounding out this show brought to you by the letter ‘S’
Sometimes people exist in a certain place and at a certain time for a reason. Slates is a punk band from Edmonton, Alberta; not punk like leather/tattoos/screaming/one minute songs and junk. Just punk. Edmonton is a cold, industrial city where money often dominates little things like art, the environment, and pride. Slates have to exist in Edmonton. They couldn’t exist without these surroundings, and the city needs somebody to document it and say when it’s right or wrong. The two go together perfectly.
Since 2008, Slates have been recording and touring. Their stinky van has taken them everywhere it physically can, and a less-stinky plane has brought them to places like Cuba, Bosnia and the Yukon Territory. Places that don’t often get to see touring bands. They’ve released three LPs and five 7-inches. The newest full-length called Taiga, was recorded with engineer Steve Albini (Nirvana, The Stooges, Jawbreaker, Neurosis) at Electric Audio, and released in early 2014.
