The band are back and on blistering form, brandishing a brand new album, 'Night Network', that is as fresh, cathartic and vital as anything they’ve ever put out. There’s no weariness, no bitterness, just a clear desire to get back to doing what they do best – that unique blend of bittersweet melody, brutal lyrical honesty and riffs for days.
"Portland's indie rock juggernaut Slang isn't just pedigree. Although their band history is a family tree of Portland's musical past, Drew Grow (Drew Grow and the Pastor's Wives, Modern Kin), Janet Weiss (Quasi, Sleater-Kinney, Wild Flag, Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks, Kathy Foster (The Thermals, Roseblood, Summer Fun Band) and Anita Lee Elliott (Viva Voce, Blue Giant), the four-piece powerfully melds their separate legacies into an explosive, intense ensemble centered around Grow's enormous voice. Their first album, Cockroach In A Ghost Town, will be released on the Kill Rock Stars label, Summer 2022.”
