Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

We are mid-2018 already (WOW!) and in the middle of the summer tour season. So while we are getting sweaty at the last Warped Tour or cooling off after moshing at a club show, we are getting the big announcements for the fall tour circuit. One of those that came through is a MASSIVE co-headliner with Slaves and Escape The Fate.

Not only did Slaves announce the new tour, along with Famous Last Words, Picturesque, and Set To Sun, but they also announced some new faces as Jonny Craig and Colin Viera have been the sole consistent members of Slaves. You can read the statement about the new members below as well as see where the band is touring!

New Members + New Tour:

We’re stoked to announce the addition of Felipe Sanchez (guitar) & Zack Baker (drums) and we’ll be heading out on a coheadliner this September / October w/ Escape The Fate. We’re bringing our boys Famous Last WordsPicturesque, and SET TO STUN along for the rodeo.

“When moving forward with finding permanent members for this band, we weren’t only looking for people with the skill set, we were also looking for people with drive and personality,” explains bassist Colin Vieira, “Felipe is a good friend of mine that I’ve grown up with, he is an amazing guitar player and an equally amazing human. Zack, we met through touring while he was playing with DayShell. We knew he was an amazing drummer, but it wasn’t until we took him on tour with us for the first time that we knew how well we all clicked.”
