SlatesThe AlloversThe betrayersSlatesSLATES was formed in late 2008 by four friends with roots deep in Edmontons music community. Currently consisting of James Stewart (guitar/vocals), Lee Klippenstein (bass), Stefan Duret (guitar) and Dallas Thompson (drums), SLATES have released three seven inches and two full-length records, most recently 2011s Prairie Fires (Handsome Dan Records).Prairie Fires is an album of gritty, melodic songs that are informed both by the bands transformative experience of touring Cuba in 2010 as well as day-to-day life in the Albertan capitalapartment arson, cat mischief, self-destruction, and the strong bonds existing between Edmontonian artists. Real, personal growth and experience shape the music on Prairie Fires.The fanaticism and dedication of Cuban punks is explored on the fiery anthem Julieta (drinking with the kids at the end of the street/a song for all the kids that came/roughed up by the police/they want to hear Nihilism/the punkies Cubanos).
