Slam Cartel announce the release of their third single from debut album Handful of Dreams: haunting track Breathe – already a favourite with critics and fans – will be released via digital outlets on 21st August. To support the release, the band will be hitting the road for their first full UK tour, also called “Breathe”, visiting venues and festivals across the country over the rest of 2012 to give fans what they have been asking for, for a long time. Slam Cartel LIVE. Additional shows are still being scheduled.
Since Handful of Dreams was released in 2011, Slam Cartel have been steadily conquering press and public with their now familiar true rock sound, combining memorable hooks and incendiary riffs. It’s a hard debut to follow; the band will be working on new material soon, but first they’re determined to give the UK audience an opportunity to witness their much praised live shows.
Handful Of Dreams was produced by George de Angelis (Trevor Horn’s right hand man for many years) and influenced by the likes of The Cult, Chilli Peppers, Guns’n’Roses and the Foo Fighters to name but a few; every track is packed with powerful melodies and heavy guitars, a combination that will charm the radio listener and agree with the more demanding rock fan.
Slam Cartel are Giles Van Lane (vocals), Marc Neudeck (bass), Tommy Hendriksen (guitar), Steve Campkin (drums), Adam Lee (keyboards, guitars) and principal songwriter, Terence Warville (guitar)
