Joining the ranks at Sliptrick Records this week:

Aeren (IT) Alternative | Rock
Lucky Bastardz (IT) Hard Rock | Heavy Metal


Aeren was formed in March 2014 by Simone D’Andria (guitar) and Simone Solidoro, (bass guitar, keys and piano) who decided to create their own brand of Alternative Rock in a new music project. After some months, in May 2015, Silvia Galetta (vocals) and Cosimo De Marco (drums) joined the current line-up and in September of the same year, the band produced its first EP, Aeren, recorded in Studio Gaudio, Taranto. In 2016, the band shot their first video for the single, Bad Weakness. The shoot proved very successful and Bad Weakness won video of the year in the rankings produced by “PugliaMusic”. Over the last few years, the band has also been touring and gigging extensively including playing at some of the larger festivals in Italy cementing their position as an excellent upcoming talent. The band recorded and mixed their forthcoming album, Breakthru, in the summer of 2017 and having signed a 2 year deal with Sliptrick Records, Aeren will release their debut full-length in March, 2018.

Lucky Bastardz

Lucky Bastardz are an Italian hard rock band formed in Alexandria in 2008. The band adopts the slogan “Double-Kick Engine Rock’n’Roll” to describe their original musical style, and they are known for their boundless energy and attitude, triggered both in the recording studio, but especially on stage. The group released their first 2 albums in 2009 (Hated For Who We Are) and 2010 (Bite Me, Dude) and in these and subsequent years, the band had the opportunity to perform alongside superstars such as Anthrax, Obituary, Deicide, Belphegor as well as many important Italian bands. In 2015, after a line-up change, Lucky Bastardz released the album Alwayz On The Run. The record marked the beginning of a major stylistic change which proved to be both a critical and sales success. Now, after another guitar line-up change, the band are back with their fourth album, the most ambitious so far, Be The One, which will be released in early 2018.
