Slyder Smith & The Oblivion Kids Premiere 'Pleasure Victim' Video Ahead Of New Album And Electric Boys UK Tour this August

 


In advance of the band’s debut LP, ‘Charm Offensive’, which is out 19th August, the swaggering British rock band, Slyder Smith & the Oblivion Kids, have premiered a brand new video for their latest single, ‘Pleasure Victim’.

This new material lands as the group prepare for an extensive UK Tour commencing 23rd August as special guests to groove rock legends Electric Boys.

‘Pleasure Victim’ is a sleaze powered runaway train; an homage to the decadence and debauchery of the late 80s/early 90s Soho rock scene. The new song is a hard-hitting classic rock anthem with filthy duelling guitars, steam roller bass and relentless pounding beat. Lyrically it tells the story of the transformation from being shackled to the doldrums of the 9-5 life to when the weekend finally comes, and the seduction of the night lures you in to live the dream of rock stardom.

“Seduce me with all your charms, I’m a victim when I’m in your arms”

You are powerless, you are addicted to the music, addicted to the look, get dressed to impress, choose your poison, and offer yourself up to the altar of the rock gods. This is your song, this is your anthem, whether you like it or not, you are now a Pleasure Victim… at least for tonight!

Slyder Smith first swaggered onto the stage as lead guitarist with glam-tinged power popsters, Last Great Dreamers. After releasing four studio albums and one live album on Ray Records, Slyder has toured extensively throughout the UK & Europe with LGD headline shows and special guest slots to The Quireboys, The Wildhearts, Terrorvision, The Darkness, Enuff ZNuff, and more.

Slyder now takes centre stage leading his new power trio, Slyder Smith & The Oblivion Kids (featuring Tim Emery on bass and drummer Rik Pratt) in an honest outpouring of grit, glamour and emotion.

Produced by Pete Brown (George Harrison, Siouxsie & the Banshees, Marc Almond, The Smiths, Sam Brown), Slyder Smith & the Oblivion Kids’ debut album, 'Charm Offensive' is a chocolate box of sonic sensations offering up a little something for everyone – from heavy riffage with walloping drums akin to AC/DC to the anticipated sleaze rock shades of Hanoi Rocks.

However, this band is not afraid to step away from their rock roots, instead, with nods to the likes of The Doors, Velvet Underground, The Stranglers and The Kinks from the past and the alternative rock sound of Manic Street Preachers, The Oblivion Kids have reimagined an 80s synth pop classic and mastered singalong pop, gothic, dark Americana, and dare we say it, funk rock?!


‘Charm Offensive’ is out 19th August via Ray Records.

The group follows the lead of bands such as Tool and Primus by creating an entire universe of sound and light for fans to explore. The band teamed with renowned producer Kane Churko (Five Finger Death Punch, In This Moment, Ozzy Osbourne, Papa Roach) on the EP and new focus track ‘ Joke ”. Vocalist Caesar says of ‘Joke’: “The song reflects the illusory nature of the self, both in cyberspace and the physical world. No one is entirely what they may think or claim to be, even the most insightful among us. Moreover, today's technological trends and social platforms seem to have amplified our tendency toward self-delusion." He continues: "Maintaining a healthy sense of humility and open-mindedness can be challenging under more traditio
