TO HEAR THE NEW ALBUM, ‘DONT LET THE SUNLIGHT FOOL YA:
The Slackers are returning to tour the EU in October 2022 after a 3 year absence.
The Slackers are a sextet based out of New York City. For 31 years, the critically acclaimed Slackers have been touring the world with their blend of Ska, Reggae, and Soul.
Since 1991, the Slackers have released fifteen albums and countless singles, while their 1000s of live performances
feed their fans with energetic sets of ecstatic music.
The press state that the Slackers are “the best ska band in the world” (Rude International), “the pick of the US crop”
(Metal Hammer), “the sound of New York’ (New York Times), “is about as close to perfect as it gets” (Ink 19),
and “one of the best bands in the United States” (axs. com).
In April 2022, The Slackers released a new album, “Dont Let The Sunlight Fool Ya” (Pirates Press) which quickly
shot to the top of the US billboard charts. This is the first time that a Slackers’ album has charted! Ironically after 30 years as a band, this qualified them as a Billboard ‘new artist.’ The Washington Post noted that the Slackers “remain at the top of their game.”
The chart topping performance of “Dont Let The Sunlight Fool Ya” capped a 2 year comeback of the Slackers. When
Covid stopped live shows in 2020, the Slackers pivoted to livestreams and made 5 full band concerts that were
broadcast internationally. After the shows, they stayed in the studio and recorded the tunes that became Sunlight.
Returning to live gigging in the 2nd half of 2021, the band celebrated their 30th anniversary with 30 shows across
the United States and Canada.
In 2022, the Slackers have 90 shows booked in the United States, Canada, UK, and Europe. At 31 years old, the band has been renewed and is looking to grow their cult following into its 4th decade.
