On Friday, slowthai released his second album ‘TYRON’ to widespread, global critical acclaim. Today he shares a video for album track ‘VEX’ – a follow on from the latest ‘CANCELLED’ featuring Skepta.
In this continuation on the horror movie theme, ‘VEX’ finds slowthai serving up questionable “beef” burgers in the Troglodyte Bites Diner.
Presumably the same meat out the back of the Troglodyte van at the end of the CANCELLED video as the staff and customers at the diner run wild in a maniacal manner; yet another twisted masterpiece from THE REST.
slowthai has also announced a sweaty & sticky floored live tour for September. Termed the ‘SOMETHING TO LOOK FOWRARD TO’ tour in support of small venues, slowthai will return to some if those he played pre-‘Nothing Great About Britain’.
COVID safety pending, he will run through Glasgow, Leeds, Birmingham, Oxford, Southampton and London which will find him tearing up Camden Underworld once more (a year after which, he was on the stage at Brixton Academy).
On the dates slowthai said: “I miss you all so much and we need something to look forward to so I’m taking it back to the smaller venues that need our support more than ever. LOVE YOU CAN’T WAIT TO SEE YOU IN THOSE SWEATY BOX ROOMS LET’S GET IT.”
