The dates will be the Kent duo’s largest yet.

Good news, Slaves fans! Our August cover stars have just announced a big ol’ tour for this winter, which will mark the band’s largest shows to date.

Kicking off in Newcastle at the start of November, and winding up at a 10,000-capacity celebration at London’s Alexandra Palace at the end of the month, the tour will see Isaac and Laurie traversing the whole of the UK and Ireland in support of new LP ‘Acts Of Fear and Love’.

Joining them for the shows will be Aussie punks Amyl and the Sniffers, and fellow Kent pals and Girl Fight Records signings Lady Bird. They also have Slow Thai on board for the London date.

Tickets go on sale 9am, Friday August 10th.

Slaves grace one of two special edition covers of DIY this month alongside IDLES, celebrating the compassionate, inclusive new face of UK punk.
