In early December, theSlacks are embarking on a North Island tour to promote the Big Aroha single and video release. The mini-tour criss-crosses the Island from Auckland down to Wellington and Taranaki across to Gizzy - a pagan genuflection of AotearoaNZ rock.

Bringing a fresh, new batch of songs, theSlacks will also be revisiting their classic album Suppressed Inventions and last year’s album release, Welcome To The Rolling Vibe for a full-bodied show with serious legs.

A strong DIY vibe runs through theSlacks’ production efforts - it’s an ethos that’s related to rock n roll and punk (by marriage or maybe once removed). The result is a rough polish that is theSlacks’ stock in trade.

The sound of the band has been described as folk-rock slapped about the face by country and the blues with a dusting of Irish-ska.

Self-funded and self-motivated, theSlacks have defied their own millstone of a name and produced two full-length albums, an EP, four music videos and countless tours and dance-offs.

"Shades of FizzPop and curtains of Country-Ska colour the sound of theSlacks which is veritably infested with their poignant social commentary and unselfish desire to entertain - enough and plenty more to keep even the most searching minds in the station and the swinging-est hips in motion.” - TSB Festival of Lights, 2015.
