The Slants' Yellow Album Tour in the South


This summer, The Slants are touring nationwide while working on their fourth release. The Slants are the world’s first and only all-Asian American dance rock band. Whether melting faces at anime conventions or at your local venue, their bombastic live show is not to be missed.

This Oregon-based band combines the sounds of 80’s synth pop with fresh dance-punk melodies and style. Their name reclaims and celebrates the “slanted” eye as beautiful and something to be proud of and they are redefining the unlimited three-dimensionality of the Asian American body with each show they kill. While they are clearly about the music, they also hold social agendas that make this unique band a group to look up to.

What originated as a side project for Taiwanese American Simon Young (of The Stivs) in 2007 proved to be one of the most energetic and contagious movements of music in our time.
