Isn’t it nice when your favourite artist isn’t an asshole? We find it pretty refreshing to find out that our favourite singers and bands aren’t complete dicks, so it’s even better when they’re not only nice guys but are as sick of slimy men as we are. Thank all that is good for Thee MVPs then, who have set their sights on all those creeps on their latest track ‘SLIMELORD’. A track we’re super proud to give it the first spin.
Thee MVPs are currently out at SXSW spilling their guts across the Austin dancefloors with their brand of riff-heavy garage rock ‘n’ roll. But, being the gents they are, they found a bit of time to share this brand new track ‘SLIMELORD’. It’s a song which tackles the ever-growing and totally unacceptable behaviour of some creepy guys at gigs.
The band’s Charlie had this to say about the track: “You ever had a gross guy be gross to you at a show or in the club? This song’s about that. Slimelord’s ruin rock and roll. If you ever feel like you’re having a hard time at one of our shows speak to us and we’ll get them oozing assholes outta there.”
Although the song isn’t going to be on the brand new album it is from the first session so has the same energy and chutzpah we expect on the new record. Judging by this output it’s going to be another no-holds-barred riff-tastic affair.
We can’t wait.
If you’re out in Austin here’s where you can catch Thee MVPs. Go and show them some love.
