SLIMBOY are back with a European tour with US pop-punkers, MEST, as well as
re-releasing their new album, Sail On Sailor, on 10th August via NiRo music.
The acclaimed punksters have also just released a new track, Let It Go –
Swiss punk rockers SLIMBOY possess a rich heritage. Originally born at the
start of the millennium, the Basel-based trio have seen and just about lived
through it all: signing to a major label, touring the world, recording
albums in LA and even chart success in their native country.
After a brief hiatus, the threesome returned to the fold last year, and have
recently completed a highly successful tour with The Ataris. SLIMBOY also
travelled to the States to record their fifth album with Mike Herrera (MXPX)
in his Seattle-based studio. Sail On Sailor is an album with wide scope,
panning from punk-rock cuts right through to more lighter and mature tracks.
This is a record that has really pushed the trio both musically and
SLIMBOY have announced a run of shows with MEST for August. For UK tickets,
