Melbourne duo Slum Sociable have announced the release of their final EP before disbanding. The pair have released the EP's lead single, Questions, which stemmed from a writing session with Kon Kersting (Tones and I, The Jungle Giants, Mallrat, The Rubens) and was self-produced by member Ed Quinn.
The duo have also shared a heartfelt message to their fans. "We've decided to put an end to Slum Sociable. We’d like to thank you, the fans. We had no idea what this project would become when we released a shitty 6 track EP in 2015. And none of it would have been possible without you. It still blows our mind that people came to our show and let us know when our music has got them through a sticky period in their life. Its tough to put that feeling into words I think, and we're certainly not eloquent enough to do so. But know that it meant the world to us."
"Growing up as huge fans of music, we just thought stuff like playing Splendour In The Grass and The Corner, getting radio play, touring internationally, even going on Rage, we could really only dream of doing shit like that. But somehow, all of that stuff came true. Even ruminating on it now, it's still fucking mind blowing really. Ridiculous. So yeah. We're excited to move onto the next phases of our careers/ life, and thank you all for your love."
"We'll be releasing our final EP on April 1 through Liberation Records, and here's another single off it entitled ‘Questions’, which was written around two years ago, but feels like a cogent final single for Slum Sociable. Miller and Cregan"
Questions is out now! Listen to the track below.
