theSlacks Unleash 'Big Aroha', Announce North Island Shows

Taranaki four piece theSlacks  share their brand new single 'Big Aroha' with Aotearoa today.

'Big Aroha' germinated in singer, Marky Armstrong’s school years after a poignant discussion with his mate Joe at the bus stop outside the Inglewood dairy, about the importance of community and manaakitanga - a conversation that stayed with him over the years and finally coalesced into a song. 

Peppered with Te Reo and celebrating strong community ties and deep roots, 'Big Aroha' is a nod to 'Poi E' and a modern Taranaki response to our times.

In early December, theSlacks are embarking on a North Island tour to promote the 'Big Aroha' single and video release.  The mini-tour criss-crosses the island from Auckland to Wellington and Taranaki across to Gizzy - a pagan genuflection of NZ rock.
Bringing a fresh, new batch of songs, theSlacks will also be revisiting their classic album Suppressed Inventions and last year’s album release, Welcome To The Rolling Vibe for a full-bodied show with serious legs.

'Big Aroha' is now available for purchase on Bandcamp, iTunes and all good DSPs.
