Bombed Out and artist news

The second Bombed Out band to split in as many months, Slow Science played their last handful of gigs in September.
One of our favourite UK bands of the last few years, we are sorry to announce that Slow Science are no more. The band played a blinder in Leeds recently with The Dauntless Elite (where the above photo was taken - yours truly ruining the bands aesthetic by popping up in the middle) as part of their final tour. Proving, once and for all, that they were one of the most satisfyingly unique punk bands we had heard in a long time and, as rusty as they claimed to be, one of the best live bands.
It should go without saying that we have no regrets on getting them to line up alongside Leeds' finest on their new split 12" - their 2 tracks are as good as any to have appeared on any Bombed Out release to date.
There's not much to say that hasn't already been said so I'll just thank Jon, Stacey, Al and Paul, wish them all the best for the future (the new Axes record is going to be special) and leave you with a small snippet from the insert to the new record. It rounds things off nicely:
"[Thanks to] all our friends and families. All the bands we have played with over the years, promoters who have put us on, anyone who gave us a place to stay, fed us, came to see us, bought a record or a t-shirt. We've been Slow Science. You're Welcome."

Heading to press this week will be a 4-track, 12” split record featuring two of the best melodic punk bands in the country.
It’s been 3 long years since the Slow Science demo blew us away to the extent that we wanted to put their record out. Worth the wait? Hell yes. The two new Slow Science tracks showcase everything that’s ace about this band. The musicianship, the melody, Jon and Stacey’s dueling vocals, the “Whoas” and, most importantly, the SONGS. All present and correct.
The Dauntless Elite deftly hold their own as they have done for many years now. Two new songs from them which may stand amongst the bands best.
As a taster here’s the first track on the record. Enjoy. Pre-order soon.
