Played at Graspop Metal Meeting


United States


If you remember the American post-hardcore band Emarosa then you may also recall Jonny Craig’s impressive vocal range. He was kicked out of Emarosa in 2011 due to substance abuse but in 2014 formed a new band called Slaves. Their debut album ‘Through Art We Are All Equals’ was released in 2014 and ‘Routine Breathing’ came out last year. Following a difficult episode with Vans Warped Tour and the resulting financial struggle, the fans really came through and probably saved the band from bankruptcy. Who can blame them? After all, Slaves are considered one of the most promising post-hardcore bands around today. (Text: Nick Tronckoe / Translation: Nick Devos)
