Brighton Dome, Brighton, Saturday, December 7

PUNK rock duo Slaves have announced a winter UK tour.

The band will play the Brighton Dome on Saturday, December 7.

Tickets go on sale on Friday at 9am or via an exclusive Resident Brighton pre-sale today at 9am.

Despite the fact that they hail from just up the road in Tunbridge Wells, this will be Slaves first headline show in Brighton for three years.

The band consists of Laurie Vincent on vocals, guitar and bass and Isaac Holman on vocals, drums and trumpets.

The duo have been at the forefront of the modern punk rock movement in the UK since bursting onto the scene in 2012 with their debut EP Sugar Coated Bitter Truth.

It took until 2015 for the band to release their first full length album, Are You Satisfied?, where it climbed all the way to number eight in the UK charts.

The record was also nominated for the Mercury Prize the same year and has since sold more than 60,000 copies in the UK alone.

From there the group continued to grow in popularity, with their second studio offering, Take Control, going two better than its predecessor and reaching number six in the charts upon its 2016 release.

The band’s most recent album, Acts of Fear and Love, was released in 2018 and also managed to crack the top ten in the wildly competitive, and pop focused, charts.

The band is still very much in its infancy, and with two young men leading the way... Laurie is 26 while Isaac is 25... there is no telling how far they can climb.

They are often seen as one of the leading lights in the British punk scene and have managed to make their music accessible enough that they are adored by fans of other genres as well.

The Slaves December tour kicks off in Brighton on December 7 and visits Warrington and Glasgow before culminating in three dates at the near 1,000 capacity London ULU.
