Brooklyn's lovers of all-things-'90s, Total Slacker, are set to return with their second album, Slip Away, on February 11 via Black Bell Records. The new LP finds the band tightening the reins a bit and the new album is definitely punchier than their jokey/fun debut, Thrashin'. You can stream "Keep the Ships at Bay" and watch the entertaining, horror-themed video for "Sometimes You Gotta Die" below.

Total Slacker will play a record release show at Rough Trade on February 12 with Honduras, Life Sized Maps and one more TBA. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (12/6) at noon. It's currently the only date on their schedule.

holy shit. is that really their photo? looks like a 'hipster band' put together to be featured on a "real" and "edgy" show like Girls. "show". "Girls".

"amazing".

That photo is an encapsulation of everything that sucks about NYC's "subculture."

OK, they look like they're trying too hard. Who doesn't these days? In fact, who ever made it look easy? Before all the great "subculture" people were icons, they were young and relatively affluent suburbanites like Bob Zimmerman and Lewis Allan Reed. Let the Millenials have their time in the sun. And get a fucking life.

So, on a scale of 1 to 10, how ashamed do you think those kids' parents are? I'm thinking at least 8.

Hey which one of you anonymous assholes ever did anything with your lives let alone got signed by a record company and gained any measure of fame for your creativity. Instead , you sit alone in a dark room masturbating to porn and projecting your pathetic insecurities on people who have accomplished something. Too chickenshit to even identify yourselves . Anonymous losers .
