It's all led to this for SLANDER.
It's been quite a journey for the barnstorming bass music duo, who launched their musical project way back in June 2010. Longtime fans will recall SLANDER's humble beginnings, graduating from the L.A. music production school Icon Collective and cutting their teeth in the electronic scene by way of their nostalgic "heaven trap" sound.
"Here's to the future!" SLANDER wrote in a 2014 Facebook post after completing Icon's final exams.
Little did they know just how far they would fly. Cultivating a fiercely loyal fanbase, SLANDER eventually became a lynchpin of the EDM festival scene, appearing on the lineups of the world's largest events.

Over 12 years since their moniker's inception, SLANDER have now revealed their long-awaited debut studio album, Thrive, slated for release on September 22nd.
