It’s been a sensational year for Norway’s Sløtface, who recently released their hotly anticipated debut album Try Not To Freak Out via Propeller Recordings/Nettwerk. After a busy summer, which saw the band’s first headlining tour in Australia, a slew of European festival runs, and UK dates supporting Los Campesinos! and The Cribs, the band is finally bringing their epic punk chops and behemoth pop exuberance back to the states for a handful of North American dates (see all dates here or below).
Norway’s Sløtface have a live-wire energy and introspection beyond their years. Try Not To Freak Out intimately covers issues – spanning from unrealistic beauty standards to adolescent dilemmas – showcasing the band’s signature brooding wit. The album is nothing short of a massive rock record which received numerous accolades from the US and abroad, clocking up more than 6,000 plays across international radio, including weekly spins from Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1 and a playlist add at triple j in Australia. Additionally, Lorde offered praise to the band, Tweeting “omg this is rad!!!” to the band’s rendition of her Melodrama track “Supercut“ on Triple J’s ‘Like A Version’.
Whether it’s a love song from an unexpected perspective or a critique on power and ego, the foursome’s message and undeniably catchy riffs have inspired critics and fans across the globe. Be sure to catch the band’s raucous performance live in a city near you!
