‘New York Berlin / Tell Them No’ On 12″ digitally printed vinyl. Catch the band on tour all year long!

New York City, The Slackers whose latest album ‘Don’t Let The Sunlight Fool Ya’ hit #1 on the Current Reggae Charts in the spring, have announced a new 2 song EP called ‘New York Berlin / Tell Them No’ and it will be pressed on a limited edition 12″ UV digitally printed vinyl. The band will be touring the rest of the year across North America and Europe. ‘New York Berlin’ is commentary on friendship during changing times in center cities. Both friends and neighborhoods were treasured despite their flaws but both ended up going away. The moral of the song is to remember to love everyone around you while they are around you. Meanwhile, ‘Tell Them No’ is a song of empowerment and finding one’s inner strength through adversity. Based on trombonist and vocalist Glen Pine and his nephew’s real-life struggles with bullying, the song encourages its listeners to rise above the fray and not to let detractors get the best of you. Stand up for yourself, fight back, then allow yourself to heal.
