Norwegian punks Slutface now go by the name of SLØTFACE, a decision that’s down to “social media censorship.”
In a statement, Haley Shea and co. say “we have been shut out of certain opportunities as a band, so to sneak by these old fashioned views we are tricking the internet, shh.”
They add: “We have in no way changed our political and feminist message, we just hope to reach more people with our lyrics and message by changing one silly letter of our name and thereby avoiding censorship. Also we like the connection to our Nordic roots and hope we can trick Mark Zuckerberg into promoting SLØTFACE music. Løv Sløts.”
Save this from being a bittersweet announcement, SLØTFACE have unveiled their gigantic new single, ‘Sponge State’. It’s a frenzied call to arms, up there with last year’s breakthrough ‘Kill It With Kindness’. “The song is a reaction to the apathy and lack of action that is symptomatic of our generation,” says Shea.
