Released in August this year, Slaves‘ acclaimed third album, Acts of Fear and Love, reflects that fear and love may actually be the biggest motivators in the world at the moment. Following their Mercury-nominated top 10 2015 album Are You Satisfied? and 2016’s top 10 album Take Control, the band have opened themselves up to new territory. The album’s title is inspired by a comment once made by drummerIsaac Holman‘s college teacher – “There’s no such thing as hate – just acts of fear and love.”
ACTS OF JOY AND LOVE (LP)
“Musically, ‘Acts Of Fear And Love’ is the most accomplished of Slaves’ three albums, switching things up and pulling off new sounds without losing sight of the band’s DNA.” – NME
“The spirit of Ian Dury lives on in their witty observations of 21st-century living, not to mention their irresistibly rough swagger.” – The Independent
