Artist Bio:

Slothrust_Film_32

Slothrust is principal songwriter, singer, guitar player and unrepentant
aesthete Leah Wellbaum, with drummer Will Gorin and bassist Kyle Bann. On
their fourth full-length album The Pact, Slothrust constructs a luscious, ethereal
cosmos perforated with wormy portals and magic wardrobes, demonstrating
more clearly than ever the band’s deft shaping of contrasting sonic elements to
forge a muscular sound that’s uniquely their own. The album was recorded in
Los Angeles with producer and mixer Billy Bush (Garbage, Neon Trees, The
Boxer Rebellion).

Cultivating their potent brew of classically informed,
soulful rock in the fertile Brooklyn indie scene, Slothrust released their debut
LP, Feels Your Pain, in 2012, followed by 2014’s Of Course You Do. The band
expanded their fervent following via the song “7:30 am,” selected as the
theme for the FX Network show “You’re The Worst”. Their 2016 Dangerbird
debut album Everyone Else established the band as a breed apart, capable
of serving up deceptively clever epics that veer satisfyingly between
incandescent riffing and pop hooks, winsome anxiety and powerful
heft. Throughout 2016 and 2017, Slothrust lit up audiences on sold-out
headline tours, festival dates and support tours with Highly Suspect in the US
and Manchester Orchestra in Europe. The band closed out 2017 with Show Me
How You Want It To Be, an EP of of unexpected and inventive covers of songs
by artists as diverse as Al Green and Britney Spears, Black Sabbath and Louis
Armstrong.
