Band working on follow-up to 2015 debut 'Are You Satisfied?'

Slaves have discussed their future plans in a new interview, confirming that they are working on new music.

The Tunbridge Wells duo released debut LP ‘Are You Satisfied?’ in June 2015, now revealing plans to NME of its follow-up.

Slaves were speaking at the NME Awards 2016 with Austin, Texas on Wednesday (February 17), where they picked up an award for Best Music Video.

Speaking following their win, guitarist Laurie Vincent told NME: “We’ve written a load of demos and we’re going to make a new album and yeah, keep having lots of fun.”

Drummer Isaac Holman described the album as sounding “heavy, dirty and fun”, while Vincent added: “If you were to sit on this NME Award with your sphincter, that’s what our new album sounds like.”

Slaves were presented with their Best Music Video award by Game of Thrones stars Isaac Hempstead Wright and Dean Chapman at this week’s ceremony. Accepting the award, the Tunbridge Wells pair thanked their fans for support.

Slaves held off competition from the likes of Rihanna, The Libertines and Blur to scoop the award for the video to ‘Cheer Up London’.
