Their latest video follows a story of rejection as it details what happens to Isaac Holman after the success of ‘Cut & Run’ dance, with Holman now having “left the band” to pursue his dream of being an international dance sensation.
Meanwhile, the other half of Slaves, Laurie Vincent, is left to audition drummers – and what an audition it is.
The hopeful drummers interviewing for a spot in the band include Royal Blood’s Ben Thatcher, Joel Amey from Wolf Alice, Peace’s Dom Boyce, The Maccabees’ Sam Doyle, Amber Grimbergen from HINDS and even Blur legend Dave Rowntree.
As well as this, Laurie auditions the Phil Collins loving gorilla from the Dairy Milk advert, a Joey Jordison from Slipknot lookalike and even Yorkshire’s No.1 Peter Criss (from Kiss) lookalike.
Speaking about the single, Laurie said: “Chokehold’s our attempt at writing a pop love tune…a lot of men have had that feeling of being dumped and not spoken about it.”
Earlier this month, the duo released the track listing for their new album, the follow up to 2016’s ‘Take Control’, together with the album artwork.
Announcing the release of their third studio album earlier this year, the duo said: “Our new album ‘Acts of Fear and Love’ will be released on the 17th of August this year. An album we are so very proud of that we decided to put ourselves on the front cover of it…can’t wait for you lot to hear it.”
They also released a fun video to accompany the release, with Laurie’s son Bart making an appearance.
