Slaves have announced new album 'Take Control' will be released on September 30th.
Sessions were overseen by punk and hip-hop legend Mike D, formerly of Beastie Boys, and took place at Jackson Browne's studio in Santa Monica.
The producer comments: "The songs showed a lot of potential and I saw a clear role for myself in the process. I think the band just needed to be pushed a bit in terms of developing the songs further. It was very important to me to make a record that while not super polished, is not at all low-fi. When I go back and I listen to some of the U.S. hardcore records I love, I’m super disappointed by how poorly they sound today. I want it to be able to compete with any big sounding rock record whether it is Metallica or Slayer or whatever, but it's important that it has the heart of a Black Flag record. Hopefully we've transcended that."
