DS News: Slick Shoes working on new album

Slick Shoes have revealed they are currently working on a new full-length album. The SoCal skate punk veterans made the announcement in their latest Instagram post, with pictures of themselves in the studio writing the album. Also noteworthy is that guitarist Greg Togawa is back with the band for the first time since their 2002 self-titled album. They don’t say how far along in the process they are, so it’s hard to tell whether this record will be part of the growing list of awesome releases 2023 has in store. Fingers crossed!

This announcement comes as a bit of a surprise, considering the 17 year gap between the band’s 2020 comeback LP Rotation & Frequency and its predecessor Far from Nowhere. It’s a welcome surprise nonetheless, and I’m looking forward to seeing what direction they take.

Some of the songs on Rotation & Frequency had a slightly heavier sound than their earlier work so it’ll be interesting to see if they continue to lean into that or throw back to that old school Rusty / Burn Out sound a bit more. Stay tuned for more on the next Slick Shoes record!
