"Seeing them live was amazing...I instantly felt a bond with these three guys. You see so many tired, boring rock acts doing the same thing over and over, but these guys are reaching out...They're taking what we know of music and trying to twist it to a different place." - Jim James, of MY MORNING JACKET Sunday NYTimes, July 2, 2006

The Slip (Brad Barr -guitar/vocals, Andrew Barr-drums and Marc Friedman-fretless bass) formed in early 1995 as two brothers and a childhood friend met in the halls of high school and immediately fell in together, later dropping out of Berklee college and heading off - criss-crossing the country, releasing their debut album "From the Gecko" in 1997 and began establishing a dedicated fan-base through relentless touring across the United States.

The Slip's uncanny ability to create authentic & emotional original music has captured the hearts of music fans all over the world. There is something impossible about The Slip, something humble and heroic, hard and tender, soft and monstrous. After 3 studio albums and countless live releases, The Slip are proud to release their newest album "EISENHOWER," on Bar/None Records. With support tourdates throughout The United States with Indie Rock Champions My Morning Jacket, The Slip are poised to reach higher levels of popularity. And rightfully so, with constarnt touring, appearances at major Festival (High Sierra, Newport Jazzfest, SXSW and Bonnaroo) and theaters across the US, Canada & Japan, 50,000 CDs sold internationally, testimonials from respected musicians, The Slip are ready for the attention they are about to recieve.

After drilling deep within their home studios over the almost five years since their last studio release, the band finally entered the illustrious Q-Division Studios in Boston to create a stunning new album that brings adventure, daring, and honest songwriting back to the annals of rock. Montreal's venerable Studio Plateau was used to record one last final track with good friend Drew Malamud (Stars, Metric, The Dears). Entitled "Airplane/Primitive" the track also features french horn laid down by Chris Seligman from Stars. The album was co-produced by the band and Matthew Ellard (Elliot Smith, Billy Bragg & Wilco, Morphine) and with additional engineering Drew Malamud, EISENHOWER easily stands as the most cohesive and evocative work The Slip has released to date. The band's first release for Bar/None Records, this is music that points to the future, synthesizing older influences like The Beatles, Bach, and Led Zeppelin while also engaging in a current dialogue with the likes of Built to Spill, Iron & Wine and Wilco.

Montreal's THE LOVELY FEATHERS www.thelovelyfeathers.com will support on selected Canadian and US dates
