The Slants are currently riding high on the emerging popularity of their debut full-length, the tongue-in-cheek titled "Slanted Eyes, Slanted Hearts", an album full of new wave, synth, pop, and danceable rock, all with an Asian flavor. The album has catchy hooks, smooth harmonies, and anthemic choruses - everything that a perfect record should have. And it has been catching the support of a new breed of fans: anime watching, video game playing, manga reading kids who are in love with the band's sound and show presence. The "Slants army" has been coming out in the thousands, with scheduled appearances in the near future for audiences of 12,000 plus. All this for a band who¹s first show was in June 2007. Talk about an out-of-the-gate success.

The Slants have an extensive tour schedule throughout 2008 and 2009already on the books. Look for them at a club or anime convention near you.
