Mark Slaughter thinks his new solo album is extension of early Slaughter with more liberties
Slaughter frontman Mark Slaughter was recently interviewed by iGnite Music Magazine during which he spoke amongst many things about his new upcoming solo album Halfway There, which will be released via Universal Music Japan on May 10, 2017 in Japan and via EMP Label Group on May 26, 2017 in Europe and the USA.
The singer described his solo album as follows: “I think this record can stand up, and is an extension of early Slaughter material with more liberties taken. A lot of band just put out their shitty demos as records. This is NOT a demo! There is a lot of sweat and love put into it.”
In terms of recalling a seminal Spinal Tap moment, the singer stated: “Being left at a truck stop and hitching a ride with a fan in a Trans Am as if we were breaking a new ground speed record to catch up to the tour bus. Or being led to the stage only to find ourselves in the boiler room of the venue… Thanks security!”
On whether he finds it as easy to hit his range vocal wise as he did starting out, or whether he has a good regimen to keep his voice sounding great, the singer stated: “I still sing the songs with the same fighting attitude that I did decades ago. It’s what I do! There are all kinds of ways to keep your voice in great condition. The best thing for all vocalists to do is rest and stay hydrated but voice doctors tell ya not to talk between performances… yeah right tell a singer to shut up! (Laughing).”
