Southampton band Slackrr have shared their third full-length album, ‘Set The Night On Fire’.
Featuring the likes of recent single ‘This Time’ and emotive lead single ‘Holding On’, the album was recorded at The Clubhouse in Bournemouth.
‘Set The Night On Fire’ is the culmination of a productive few years for the band, who first formed in 2018.
Their debut album ‘Time, It Waits For No One’ arrived in 2021, followed by their 2022 sophomore album ‘A Place That Feels Like Home’.
In 2022 the band – which consists of also signed with Lost Music Collective, run by Fueled By Ramen founder and former Less Than Jake drummer Vinnie Fiorello.
Speaking about the elation of releasing their third LP, and explaining how it all came together, the band have said:
“We are so excited about our album being released into the world. The album was written in late 2022 to early 2023 just after we got back from a relentless touring schedule of club dates and festivals and our first tour in America.
“This album has turned out to be our most personal and reflective album to date. We’ve had a lot of personal losses within the band while trying to write and record, and this changed the direction of a lot of the songs and the lyrics.
“In the end, it brought us closer together as a band and we hope that this album gives out a message of hope to our fans, and that you have more people out there who care about you than you realise and that by pulling together as a community you can get through anything with positivity and remembering how to have fun through the love of music.”
