Sløtface is ready to go on tour in Norway.
After being on tours abroad, Sløtface is finally ready for a long tour in Norway at the beginning of the new year. The tour started off at UKA in Trondheim in Storsalen the 22nd October, and today we are happy to announce the first dates for 2018!
Sløtface recently released the album “Try Not To Freak Out”, which got great critiques both internationally and here in Norway. For the last few years the band has been on many international tours, on both their own headline tours, and supporting The Cribs and Los Campesinos! When they released the album “Try Not To Freak Out”, both Norwegian and international press corps were praising their pop punk, and that they’re not afraid to express their attitudes or opinions through their songs.
Sløtface said following about their album:
- It’s about being in your twenties and not really knowing what you’re doing with your life. It’s about anxiety and guilt and feeling like you’re doing everything a bit wrong. Like you’re always in the wrong place.
- We wanted to tell about the typical male indie-stories from a female perspective, Sløtface emphasizes.
2017 was already a huge year for Sløtface, even before releasing their album in September. The band from Stavanger has received huge international attention, with being played more than 6000 times on international radio channels, weekly played from Annie Mac, Huw Stephens and Phil Taggart at BBC Radio 1 and listed at triple j in Australia. The band has been praised by music places and magazines like The Guardian, The Fader, Billboard, NME, Noisey, Rocksound, Paste Magazine, CLASH and Consequence of Sound. Vocalist Haley Shea was just described as one of the coolest rock artists in the world by the music magazine Kerrang!
At the same time has Sløtface, which consists of Vocalist Haley Shea, guitarist Tor-Arne Vikingstad, bassist Lasse Lokøy and drummer Halvard Skeie Wiencke, gotten a lot of attention here in Norway as well after being in the final of Urørt (“untouched”) in 2015. The band has performed at some of the biggest festivals in Norway (Øya, Pstereo, Slottsfjell), released the EP’s “We’re Just OK” (2014), “Sponge State” (2016) and “Empire Records” (2016), with a continuous support from Norwegian radio channels like NRK P3 and P13.
