Slaves shall release “To Better Days” in August; drop “Wasting My Youth” video

Posted by on May 29, 2020



Slaves has announced their new album To Better Days will arrive on August 7th via SBG Records. The band also dropped a new music video for their song “Wasting My Youth” which was directed by Orie Mcginness and Dana Willax. Vocalist Matt McAndrew provided insight about the lyrics for the single:

“There is a lyric, ‘The feeling I’ve repressed is going out of style. It’s about finding the truth and holding it back [feeling] like coming to the brink of sneezing and then missing it. You have this build up, this realization, and these feelings that are coming to a head and need to be released. Maybe that release is pleasure or maybe it’s pain or maybe just catharsis. But it’s a relief to have it out. If you miss that opportunity for release, you don’t get it again. ‘Wasting My Youth’ is about that bottled up frustration that comes from staying in a situation past its expiration date and what that does to a person.”

When talking about the entire album, McAndrew feels this is the band’s best work:

“We’re excited to finally share our new album, ‘To Better Days’, with you. I’m so proud of how this record turned out and how well we all worked together to create these songs. We feel it’s the band’s best work to date and we hope you enjoy the music as much as we enjoyed making it.”
