The Slits Return with First Album in Nearly 30 Years

The Slits Return with First Album in Nearly 30 Years
Reggae-loving girl punk legends the Slits had their first run from 1976 to 1982 before disbanding, and they remained inactive until reforming in 2005. Now, it appears the ladies will finally release their long-awaited third full-length.

The record, titled Trapped Animal, is the band's first real full-length in 28 years, following their Revenge of the Killer Slits EP that hit in 2006. The record is due in stores on October 6 thanks to the noisy punk connoisseurs at Narnack.

The current line-up of the Slits includes founding members Ari Up and Tessa Politt, as well as three new recruits. One of those new members is Hollie Cook, whose father Paul you might know from a little band called the Sex Pistols.

Besides the album, a book titled Typical Girls? The Story of The Slits is also being prepared for a fall release. To keep tabs on the book, pay attention here.
