Having plowed through the UK underground for the past few years, Brighton's, LOWER SLAUGHTER return to Bristol in support of their forthcoming second album 'Some Things Take Work'.

Support from Somerset-based stoner-fuzz, noise-rockers HENRY BLACKER, plus more still to be announced.




Lower Slaughter return with the release of their second album Some Things Take Work on the 29th of March on Box Records.

The band's debut album What Big Eyes garnered high praise from the likes of The Quietus, All Music, Loud & Quiet and Flush The Fashion as well as finding fans in BBC Radio 6 presenterShaun Keaveny and BBC Radio 1's Huw Stephens. The latter inviting the band into Maida Vale studios to record a four track live session broadcast on BBC Radio 1.

“One of the most unique noise rock bands to have appeared in the past five years.” The Quietus

“Politically and socially conscious, but it's also an absolute blast.” - AllMusic

Lower Slaughter yield a profound energy which so few bands capture. With Some Things Take Work they deliver another essential album for challenging times.


Henry Blacker


A three-piece rock band, featuring two from the group (Hey Collosus) and a brother on the drums.

"Finally England provides a credible power trio. Fans of 70's heavy boogie will love it, but it'll also appeal to folk that dig Clint Foetus, Rapeman, Kyuss, Uncle Acid, Melvins, QOTSA/Desert Sessions. One of the (many) things I like about Hey Colossus (with whom Henry Blacker share two members) is their unrepentant Rockist streak, and boy is that made manifest on this offshoot. The album starts with a riff that would sit quite happily on 'Grand Funk', 'Blues for the Red Sun' or ZZ's classic 'Deguello', but within seconds the Henry Blacker English Power-Boogie identity is patented. Some of the vocals treatments are classic Billy Gibbons (the Manic Mechanic sprang to mind) meets early QOTSA era Josh Homme. Available on vinyl and a limited run cassette from Riot Season, the cassette is strangely appropriate because these eight musings on aging, power, and failure are driving music. This is the album that the maniac in the monster truck is playing as he triesto mow you down in a 70's drive-in movie. It's the album Kowalski is playing to keep his drug and fatigue-addled mind alive as he heads for the Vanishing Point.” (Toby Mearing)
