Biography

Slaves refers to more than one artist:

1) Slaves are a two piece lo-fi garage band from Kent, signed to the Virgin EMI label.
Isaac Holman (Vocals, Drums) and Laurie Vincent (Guitar, Vocals) released their debut album “Sugar Coated Bitter Truth” through Girl Fight Records in July 2012.

2014 saw the release of Where’s Your Car Debbie?, Hey and The Hunter .

2) Slaves is the project of Jonny Craig, hailing from California. They released their first single “The Fire Down Below” on April 22, 2014 and their debut album, which is entitled “Through Art We Are All Equals”, on June 24, 2014. Two other singles, “The Upgrade, Pt. II” and “Starving for Friends (feat. Vic Fuentes)” were also released.

Bassist Jason T. Mays has left the band voluntarily because of family health issues and will not be returning. No permanent replacement has been found as of yet.

3) Slaves was the original name of Pleasure Forever formed by Joshua Hughes (Guitars), Andrew Rothbard (Vocals / Piano / Keyboards) and David Clifford (Drums/ Percussion). Their music is generally dark, and has a somewhat gothic/cabaret feel. Lyrical content (while heavily distorted on Alter) can be vague but is usually concerned with images of hedonism, lust, weakness of man, death and similar themes.

    Sorry but I miss JC with DGD, his voice with Slaves is really redundant 'nuff said.

    @Yuri-tavares He's famous in the "post-hardcore emo" circle, which as you should know is not famous lol. Also he was on using drugs pretty bad while he was on Rise Records and would constantly hit up his manager for money for drugs, his manager would then get the money from Rise Records executives to give to him. The final straw was when Rise Records had to pay $5000~ out to the people Jonny Craig scammed for heroin money.

    @bakesmusic I didn't know that. I thought he was pretty famous and could return this money to Rise Records.

    @Yuri-tavares: Rise Records spent a lot of money on Jonny Craig for not a lot of return so they didn't want to sign him to a new deal.

    It's okay to be snobby sometimes. It informs the people around you to completely disregard your opinion. Consider your shout a helpful cue to us all. [2]

    "I don't mean to be snobby, but the only thing this band has going for them is the fact that Jonny Craig is their singer. Tbh, this is as generic as scene gets." Generic? If there was a screamer and Jonny Craig had a high pitched whiny voice then yes it would be generic, but the instrumentals usually don't go with a voice like Craig's. I think it's just as unique as Emarosa imo.
