On September 23rd Slaine returns with a brand new, eight track EP, Slaine is Dead. It focuses not on his success, but more so walking out of his darkest hours and confronting his failures. With the help of fellow executive producer and beat-smith, The Arcitype and a sound that is gritty, polished, and moving, comes the first offering "Pusher".
"For years I'd try to get sober and couldn't” Slaine confessed to Ambrosiaforheads. “Often times I would break down in the studio and relapse because I couldn't write anything. The second I had a drink, or a drug I was writing verses in 20-minutes. The lyrics would come to me faster than I could write them. I would go on benders in the studio and record material the whole time. This time I was so desperate to get off the drugs and alcohol that I had to be willing to give up music. The two were so closely tied together that I couldn't do one without the other. Deep down I had doubts that I'd ever be able to do this again. You think getting sober means everything gets easier, but ironically some of the skills applied while intoxicated require re-learning and re-mastering.”
