Slaves is a punk revival/garage rock band that was formed in 2012 in Kent, UK. Known for their energetic performances and raw sound, the band quickly gained a following in the underground music scene. In 2018, they took control of their own destiny by starting their own label. However, in December 2022, the band made a bold move and changed their name to 'Soft Play'. They explained that the name Slaves no longer represented who they are as individuals or what their music stands for. Despite this change, their passion for creating powerful and authentic music remains unchanged.
