The Slow Death to Tour US joined for select dates by The Soviettes

The Slow Death - Band LiveMinneapolis, Minnesota’s THE SLOW DEATH are preparing to embark on a tour that has them covering much of the continental United States in just over a month. The band is fronted by Jesse Thorson, who is joined by punk heroes Paddy Costello (DILLINGER FOUR), Mikey Erg (THE ERGS), Annie Sparrows (THE SOVIETTES) and Jonny C. THE SLOW DEATH are touring in support of the recently released Turnstile Comix #1, the first in an ongoing comic book/7″ series from record label Silver Sprocket Bicycle Club. Acclaimed underground comic artist Mitch Clem illustrated 48 pages of Jesse Thorson’s greatest tour stories, and Silver Sprocket packaged it together with a 7″ of brand new songs from THE SLOW DEATH. The package is available on limited-eddition colored vinyl from the Silver Sprocket webstore.

THE SLOW DEATH recently finished recording a brand new full-length entitled “Born Ugly Got Worse” that will be available via Kiss of Death Records this fall. While out on the road THE SLOW DEATH will be sharing the stage with the likes of DEAR LANDLORD, DEAD TO ME, OFF WITH THEIR HEADS and many others as they make their way around the country. Dates include a stop at Awesome Fest 5, a 3-day music festival taking place in San Diego, California over Labor Day weekend.

Also making a rare appearance at this year’s Awesome Fest 5 is THE SOVIETTES. They will join THE SLOW DEATH for select dates leading up to the festival. THE SOVIETTES classic “LP II” was recently re-issued on Kiss of Death Records.
