The new EP titled “Split The Grin” is destined to showcase the ferocity of this compelling outfit, dystopian and dangerous, a collection of 4 tracks that ultimately provide this immense range and angular aggression.

The forthcoming single “Grated Thumbs” which drops next week, is the perfect single release to convey what the EP will capture. This almighty release perfectly produces the valiant energy of SHLUG. The single propels the listener immediately into the midst of this crashing composition where the chaos descends with this unpredictable nature. SHLUG‘s forthcoming single at just 2 minutes 32 covers such a wealth of power and dynamic shifts that the journey feels longer, it’s a fierce ensemble with erratic showmanship at the heart. The forthcoming single will deliver this thrash-soaked force whilst feeling deeply refreshing amongst their genre.

The release immediately surges with this rapid-fire punk angst, but at any moment this jolt deflects the journey and shifts to alternate tempo where SHLUG dynamically halters the madness to move to slower proceedings before ramping up the intensity again. This quick and hard-hitting directional change keeps the audience glued to the mesmeric force of this outfit and their ability to turn their madness and control the aggression with this unstable intent.

That instability is what SHLUG hold in their palms and to be able to perfect that through the recording and alter the mood of the listeners, that’s the integrity and authenticity this band hold. The single, mirroring the EP is sonically evolving and progressing throughout.

Support so far for SHLUG’s forthcoming single ‘Grated Thumbs’ comes from Dj Deb Grant on BBC 6 Music who gave the track its first National Radio Play and Visions Magazine Germany for the exclusive stream.

After the success of their previously released singles The Scent of Roy Keane and Self-Hate PortraitBF/FM and Baby Teef were released on Cardiff’s iconic Clwb Ifor Bach Label, Clwb Music

SHLUG will release their debut EP titled ‘Split The Grin‘ on the 15th May 2024, with ‘Grated Thumbs’ being released as a single on the 8th May, the band have also announced several live dates to support the record.
