About Rain City Drive
Formed in 2014, Slaves is a post-hardcore/alt-punk band that released four albums before changing their name at the height of 2020’s nationwide civil unrest.
∙ Through Art We Are All Equals, the group’s first LP, debuted at No. 4 on Billboard’s Hard Rock Albums chart in 2014.
∙ The band returned in 2018 with the Beautiful Death LP, and the video for lead-off single “I’d Rather See Your Star Explode” was a streaming hit.
∙ In 2019, Matt McAndrew, runner-up on the seventh season of The Voice, replaced founding vocalist Jonny Craig.
∙ After 2020’s To Better Days, the band announced a name change, saying that, as BLM supporters, they would not “tie [their] music...to a word associated with such negative weight.”
