Listen Slaves share ‘Photo Opportunity’

Slaves by Pooneh Ghana

The DIY cover stars’ new album ‘Acts of Fear and Love’ is out this month.

Slaves’ new album ‘Acts of Fear and Love’ comes out this month via Virgin EMI, and they’ve shared a third preview of the record.

‘Photo Opportunity’ follows ‘Cut And Run’ - complete with its workout video - and ‘Chokehold’, which saw Laurie Vincent auditioning for a new drummer after Isaac left the band to pursue a career in dancing, and the new cut shows a more contemplative side to the duo.

Slaves front the new issue of DIY alongside IDLES - read their cover feature in full online here and order a copy of the magazine here.
