Southampton band Slackrr today release their third full length album, Set The Night On Fire available now via Lost Music Collective, here.

Speaking of the album, Slacker said “We are so excited about our album being released into the world. The album was written in late 2022 to early 2023 just after we got back from a relentless touring schedule of club dates and festivals and our first tour in America. This album has turned out to be our most personal and reflective album to date. We’ve had a lot of personal losses within the band while trying to write and record, and this changed the direction of a lot of the songs and the lyrics. In the end, it brought us closer together as a band and we hope that this album gives out a message of hope to our fans, and that you have more people out there who care about you than you realise and that by pulling together as a community you can get through anything with positivity and remembering how to have fun through the love of music.”

The album, which features the already released singles Holding On and Lie To Me, also includes latest single This Time, which premiered on Radio 1’s Future Alternative show with Nels Hylton, dubbing the band as “unreal, bonafide pop punk.”

After beginning production in December 2022, the three-piece faced many challenges to complete the album, including a complete rebuild of the studio and the devastating and sudden loss of two grandparents in a short period of time for singer and guitarist, Scotty. Despite the difficulties faced, Slackrr continued on to write the album that covers themes of grief, relationships and perhaps the most resonating and important, hope.

Set The Night On Fire’s release aligns with the band’s performance at Rebellion Festival, the UK’s largest independent punk festival, on Saturday 5th August at Blackpools historic Empress Ballroom. The pop-punk trio, who have played over 550 shows in just a few years, continue their devotion to live performance and have thrown out the rule book when it comes to traditional tour schedules. They have nearly 50 shows left in 2023, including dates in both mainland Europe and USA. The band are also featured in Sony Playstation 5’s VR2 game, VR SKATER, with their previous release The Current.
