Pop-punk trio Slackrr today release their new single This Time, via Lost Music Collective, along with the official music video

This Time is taken from their upcoming third full-length release, Set The Night On Fire, out 4th August and available to pre-save here.


Written by the band and produced by Pash Stratton, the track is about realizing the people you associate with don’t have your best interests at heart. “This time, I wanna stand for something. Not holding out for someone else” sings frontman Scotty Perry. Ahead of its release, the track premiered on Radio 1’s Future Alternative show with Nels Hylton, dubbing the band as “unreal, bonafide pop punk.”


Speaking of the track, Slackrr said “Whether it be a relationship, a friendship, a job, or anything else in your life, it’s about remembering your own self-worth and having the courage to break away from this toxic situation and stand for something of your own and that there is hope in the realization that you’re better than the situation you’ve found yourself in. Through self-reflection and putting out positive energy, there is hope for a brighter future.


The band has also revealed the official music video, which sees the band in a series of setups, ‘trapped’ within a house. Focussing on the song’s lyrics, the video represents the group escaping the feeling of being trapped in a toxic situation and hoping for a better future.


Set The Night On Fire is the band’s third full-length release and was recorded at The Clubhouse in Bournemouth. The album will be released on the 4th of August, aligning with the bands’ performance at Rebellion Festival, where they will play the main stage at the Empress Ballroom in Blackpool. Mixed and mastered by experienced producer Pash Stratton, production began in December 2022 however just days into the pre-production, the sessions were put on hold when the landlord hadn’t renewed the studio’s contract. With limited time, they found a new location and in February 2023, Pash and the band rebuilt the studio and resumed recording. As well as studio issues, vocalist and guitarist Scotty Perry found himself dealing with the loss of two grandparents in a short space of time. With all the challenges they had already faced, the group continued on to write the album that covers themes of loss, grief, relationships, and perhaps the most resonating and important theme, hope. The album features the already-released singles Holding On and Lie To Me.


Scotty started writing songs as an outlet following his mother’s battle with a rare form of blood cancer. When he got the news that her treatment had been successful, he became even more inspired to continue writing and joined forces with bassist Cait Bowyer and drummer Joe Sammons in 2018. Since then, they have had a relentless touring schedule, playing over 500 shows and festivals in just 3 and a half years. With multiple festivals under their belt, they recently performed at Isle Of Wight Festival for their fourth consecutive year and show no signs of slowing down with over 50 shows scheduled for the rest of 2023 both in the UK and abroad. Later this summer, they will have their track The Current, featured in Sony Playstation’s VR2 game, VR SKATER.


Their debut EP, I Know, was released in 2019, limited to just 200 copies and sold out in just 48 hours. The EP was followed by their 2021 debut album Time, It Waits For No One and 2022’s A Place That Feels Like Home. In 2022 the band signed with Lost Music Collective, run by Fueled By Ramen founder and former Less Than Jake drummer, Vinnie Fiorello.
