Members of Wolf Alice, The Maccabees, Blur and more audition to be Slaves’ new drummer in their ‘Chokehold’ video

Looks like Isaac Holman is out of a job in the new ‘Acts of Fear and Love’ clip.

There’s a crisis in the world of Slaves in their new ‘Chokehold’ video. Isaac Holman has quit the band to pursue his dream of becoming an international dance sensation, leaving guitarist Laurie Vincent to find a new drummer.

In the clip for the second track to be released from new album ‘Acts of Fear and Love’, a whole house of famous tubthumpers audition for the new role, including Wolf Alice’s Joel Amey, Blur’s Dave Rowntree, Ben Thatcher of Royal Blood, Dom Boyce of Peace, Sam Doyle of The Maccabees, Amber Grimbergen of Hinds and more.

It doesn’t go too well, to the point where Laurie contemplates the idea of becoming a one-man band. At the critical point though, Isaac returns to reclaim his throne. All’s well that ends well!

‘Chokehold’ follows first preview ‘Cut And Run’ in previewing the band’s third album, the follow-up to 2016’s ‘Take Control’.

They’re set to take the record on a tour of record stores around the album’s release, while they’ll also play a host of summer festivals.
