Take a look at this name: Slothrust. Your gut tells you it’s “Slow Thrust” but as a matter of fact, it’s “Sloth Rust”. Pronunciation aside, this Boston three-piece has spent the past decade oxidizing audiences with their gritty, grungy style of alternative garage rock.
There’s no doubting the growth that vocalist-guitarist Leah Wellbaum, drummer Will Gorin and bassist Kyle Bann have undergone since 2010, best heard on their latest record, The Pact. These twelve new tunes bask in the glory of hi-fi production and kick off the next phase for Slothrust, who are already in the midst of a lengthy international tour. The Pact came out last Friday so immerse yourself with new Slothrust and start off with the album opener from The Pact, “Double Down”.
