Slowdive release a new track/video, ‘the slab,’ from their highly anticipated fifth album, everything is alive, out 1st September on Dead Oceans. Album closer ‘the slab’ continues to demonstrate the sonic breadth that everything is alive embraces to thrilling effect. Of ‘the slab,’ vocalist/guitarist Neil Halstead says, “This is the heaviest track on the record and as the name suggests we wanted it to feel like a big slab of music. We wanted it to feel very dense.”

In conjunction, Dead Oceans announces a series of listening sessions in New York and Los Angeles where attendees will get a first listen of everything is alive in Dolby Atmos® and in London with L-Acoustics Creations for an immersive sound experience throughout the new album. Fans will be able to enter a sweepstakes for a chance to attend.

Read our interview with Slowdive’s Rachel Goswell about the making of the album.

Slowdive’s last album of their original run was 1995’s Pygmalion. Slowdive broke up that year, although some of the members went on to form Mojave 3. The band reformed in 2014 and began playing shows again.

We interviewed Slowdive’s Neil Halstead and Rachel Goswell in 2014 about the reunion and posted various articles on the band. Read our print magazine article on Slowdive’s reunion.
