SLIMBOY continue their resurgence with a European tour with US pop-punkers, MEST, as well as re-releasing their new album, Sail On Sailor, which is out now. The acclaimed punksters have also just revealed a new video for Let It Go –
Swiss punk rockers SLIMBOY possess a rich heritage. Originally born at the start of the millennium, the Basel-based trio have seen and just about lived through it all: signing to a major label, touring the world, recording albums in LA and even chart success in their native country.
After a brief hiatus, the threesome returned to the fold last year, and have recently completed a highly successful tour with The Ataris. SLIMBOY also travelled to the States to record their fifth album with Mike Herrera (MXPX) in his Seattle-based studio. Sail On Sailor is an album with wide scope, panning from punk-rock cuts right through to more lighter and mature tracks. This is a record that has really pushed the trio both musically and emotionally.
SLIMBOY have announced a run of shows with MEST for August. For UK tickets, www.seetickets.co.uk .
