If you’re cutting yourself some slack then you need a vibe. Like a stone, if the vibe is rolling, you’ll need to know where it’s at and theSlacks can help protect the direction of your moss-avoidance.

Crafted after years of proactivecrastination comes a sound that can only be described as mayhem in the middle of the road.

Shades of FizzPop and curtains of Country-Ska colour the rockity rock rock of theSlacks which is veritably infested with their poignant social commentary and unselfish desire to entertain - enough and plenty more to keep even the most searching minds in station and the swinging-est hips in motion.

theSlacks formed around Scott and Mark Armstrong in the early 2000’s and together, the two brothers also form the core song-writing team, splitting song-writing duties straight down the middle.

theSlacks sound is most conveniently described as folk-rock and is influenced by country, the blues with the lightest dusting of Irish-ska.

High energy performances and upbeat original songs combine to create a visual spectacle, topped off with theSlacks’ signature 'Hats On', donning of their much loved and well travelled trilbies.

With an accessible song-writing style that delves far deeper than the old Moon-June cliche, theSlacks create a cheerful combination of light chaos and heavy alleviation from the stresses of the nine-to-five day.

As the five lads like to say: “Hats on, chaps, we’re rolling out the good vibes”.

With an album, 'Suppressed Inventions', already recorded but very hard to find, theSlacks have just released their first video from their second album 'Welcome To The Rolling Vibe' which is currently in the mastering phase and will be released this coming summer.
