March Update

Alright sportz fans …
Here is thee SLATES update for March 2011

We have a winner !
Congratulations to Nicholas Rogoza who answered March’s skill testing SLATES trivia question correctly (the answer was “Black Slabbath“). Mr. Rogoza will receive a test pressing of the SLATES/Old Sins split 7″.

Leading up to the release of SLATES LP2 “Prairie Fires” we are holding a trivia contest on the 1st of each month for all our facebook friends. Stay tuned for the April Fool’s Day question.

“Like” us on Facebook you could also have a chance to be a winner.

Saturday, March 12 @ Avonmore Hall
SLATES are headlining an Edmonton ALL AGER RAGER featuring fine bands such as “The Fucking Lottery”, “Book Of Caverns” and others. It looks like a refreshingly diverse bill and we always look forward to bangin for the all ages crowd. Props to Benson on a spectacular poster …



April is going to be an exciting month. We’ve got shows lined up in Calgary and Edmonton with the-awesomeness-that-is Calgary’s Spastic Panthers (ugh!) to celebrate our Unbun 7″ slated (yuck yuck) for release on Handsome Dan Records.

We recorded new songs “Fabian” and “Chinook” for an upcoming split 7″ with Calgary’s Stalwart Sons. Shout out to our man James Stewart for his hard work wrapping up loose ends and gettin er done. Release data is TBA so stay tuned !

Finally, I had to repost this picture of James and Dallas. It requires no further explanation other than it is simply amazing.
