Sløtface are set to livestreamed a gig on Facebook tonight, filmed in singer Haley Shea’s living room while the band are on lockdown in Norway.
The Norwegian trio became the latest band to announce a virtual gig while self-isolating during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
“Hi guys! We hope you’re doing well during these strange times,” the band wrote, announcing the gig, using the show to raise funds after losing money by cancelling upcoming shows in Europe.
“We would have been two weeks into our EU tour by now but we’re home like everyone else. SO we are playing a show for you… We hope you will stop by.”
As well as playing early material and drawing heavily from their acclaimed latest album ‘Sorry For The Late Reply‘, the band also performed their cover of Lorde‘s ‘Supercut’. Back in 2017, the New Zealand singer hailed their rendition as “rad“.

Sløtface become the latest of a host of bands to head online to play a gig for fans as the world continues to self-isolate in their homes.
Across the last fortnight, Diplo has been dropping live DJ sets across the internet, Christine & The Queens has held a nightly live session from her studio in France, while digital festivals have been set up in the form of DIY punk all-nighter Quarantunes and Self Esteem’s all-femme PXSSY PANDEMIQUE, which is taking place this weekend.
Sløtface released their second album ‘Sorry For The Late Reply’ this January. A four-star NME review of the album described it as “middle-finger-raising bangers to soundtrack the end of the world”.
The band were supposed to be on a UK and European tour in support of the album at the moment – rescheduled dates are yet to be announced.
