HERE COME THE SLUGS!!
I am so excited to announce officially that the newest artist to join Related Records is The Slugs from the UK! I first heard this group last November, I saw a video of them screaming "GIVE US! GIVE US YOUR SLUG MONEY!" for 15 seconds and was hooked! I followed them on Instagram, downloaded all their music on Bandcamp and after listening to all 3 EP's I sent them a message saying I want to release their music for them. By January, I had paid for their 2nd EP "Don't Touch Me, I'm too Slimy!" to be pressed as a 7". This was supposed to be ready to go by April, but because of COVID it wasn't ready until August. BUT THAT'S OKAY! it's finally here!
The Slugs are planning on doing a Q+A tomorrow (8/28 at 9PM in the UK / 1PM Pacific Coast) on the Related Records instagram and then sometime next week they will be reunited for the first time in months and will be live streaming a special performance. If you live in Europe, I suggest purchasing the 7" directly from them on their bandcamp page.
