Starting late September, Slander released the first single from their three-track EP, The Headbangers Ball, and the last track was released a couple weeks ago.
With mesmerizing, melodic vocals and hard, body consuming beats, the trio of songs is the perfect EP for all EDM lovers who want to cry and head bang at the same time. While the angelic vocals stick to the OG Slander we all grew to love, the hard bass and headbanging rhythms show Slander’s new approach to music; a new Slander era.
For the last weekend of tour, Slander took over Concord Music Hall in Chicago for two back-to-back days of raging and raving. As soon as the duo got on stage, you could feel the bass vibrate throughout your body. The anticipation in the room was lifted and replaced by sheer excitement. The room is lightened by bright LED lights as the crowd prepares themselves to rage for the next hour and a half.
While some prefer to watch from the back, and others like to ride the rail headbanging the night away, the weekend was full of old and new friends becoming one big family by the end of the night. The EDM culture is known for being loving and accepting and you could feel it in the room while Slander played all of their Headbangers Ball EP tracks, as well as some popular tracks from Excision, Sheck Wes, and more.
