New Album Fit the Fourth released on 1st June 2015

My new album Fit the Fourth will be released in June. Here’s a PDF of the press release. And here’s what my record labels PR department (ie. a lovely bloke called Martin) has to say:


Bad Elephant Music

Bad Elephant Music is proud to announce that ‘Fit the Fourth’, the new album from respected singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Tom Slatter, will be released on June 1st, 2015.

Tom weaves complex and fantastical stories throughout his music and this new album is no different. Dark deeds and dangerous characters litter the narrative, including the continuing tale of Seven Bells John. The story of this menacing character and the vivid steampunk world he inhabits has been interwoven throughout Tom’s music from his first appearance on Slatter’s debut album ‘Spinning The Compass’. With ‘Fit the Fourth’, John’s journey comes full circle with his eventual fate revealed in twenty-minute epic, ‘Seven Bells Redeemed’.

Aided by bassist Jordan Brown on two songs, Tom has produced another stellar tale with deliciously sinister leanings illustrated, as ever, with Joe Slatter’s inventive visuals.

Fit the Fourth will be available directly from Bad Elephant Music – – and other selected outlets from 1st June. Pre-ordering will be announced shortly – and keep a look out for more surprises!
