Beastie Boys' Mike D Featured On Slaves' New Album Take Control


Slaves new album Take Control will feature a guest appearance by Beastie Boys' member Mike D.

"I feel right now the world needs an album like this. Something that is more raw, more alive and less polished. I was impressed with the band's strong point of view. They actually speak their minds about social topics," Mike D told NME of working with Slaves on their new record.

"The initial conversation I had with Laurie [Vincent, guitarist] . . . there were so many influences he mentioned that I love - from the Gang of Four to The Cramps to The Damned to Public Image Ltd to The Slits and on and on. All records that I truly loved and I couldn't believe he knew all of them so well for a person his age."

Take Control will be released on September 30 via Virgin EMI. The album will follow 2015's Are You Satisfied?.
