Check out an exclusive Slip interview and songs on Rhapsody!
NEW ALBUM FINALLY HERE!
The day has arrived. The SLIP have signed to the acclaimed Bar/None Records (Architecture in Helsinki, Evan Dando, Yo La Tengo, They Might Be Giants) - and will be releasing their new studio album EISENHOWER into the world on November 7th with the warm fuzzy pride of new parents. Co-Produced by The SLIP and Matthew Ellard (Elliot Smith, Billy Bragg & Wilco, Morphine) and with additional engineering by good friend and fellow Montre-alien Drew Malamud (Stars, Metric, The Dears), EISENHOWER easily stands as the most cohesive and evocative work The SLIP has released to date. Stay tuned for even more shocking and fantastic news.
FALL TOUR W/ THE LOVELY FEATHERS AND MY MORNING JACKET
Election Day also kicks off two weeks of U.S. Headline dates that run from Seattle on down the coast to LA before cutting back across through Colorado and beyond. Montreal's critical darlings The Lovely Feathers will be joining the band out on the road to support them for all dates up until the 23rd. Following Thanksgiving, the band will catch up with My Morning Jacket on their tour for seven crazy nights in the Eastern U.S. to bring it all back home proper.
THE SLIP WINS BOSTON MUSIC AWARD FOR 'BEST LIVE ACT'
"After a minute on the Boston music scene, we suddenly found ourselves the winner of one of these shiny BMA trophy items, despite a sloppy rendition of Pixies' "Wave of Mutilation" at the award show (props to Melissa Ferrick for winging it with us). We're really grateful to all of you who took the time to vote. You made it happen. And a big congratulations to our co-conspirator Matthew Ellard, who walked off with his own award for 'Best Producer'....Thanks, everyone!"
