Seize the night, not the couch.

Lately we are becoming a generation of CHILL (Couch Homey Introverts Laying Low) or maybe it’s just only us…whatever the case is, if you are one of those people who suffer the CHILL fever, Sløtface’s latest single “Pitted” will kick your butt out of the couch and seize the night with their punk rock spirit. With growling chords and sputtering percussions, “Pitted” delivers the right amount of beatific freshness that swirls you with controlled aggression. Stream below:

“‘Pitted’ is our own little pep talk for getting out of the house when you would really prefer to stay in and chill on the couch” the band shared. “No, not every night out is killer, but sometimes those nights make the best stories and that song is full of good stories from bad nights out. Pitted is also the first song we’ve ever done with horns, so we’re SUPER STOKED to release it. The trumpet is played by Norwegian jazz musician Simen Kiil Halvorsen.”

The single is from the quartet’s debut record Try Not To Freak Out, which will be out on September 15th via Propeller Recordings. As of now, Sløtface is preparing for their tour:
