"Stirring stuff, it's the perfect entry point for those new to the Slothrust universe." 
- CLASH (On "Sleep Eater")

 "The insane shredding, crazy bass lines, and mad rocking are still there, but it also feels like a natural evolution from their last record, especially with Leah's lyrics, which are poignant and funny and you can relate to as an adult going through adult things and living through adult shit without wanting to pull your hair out."
- Lenny Letter

"Slothrust have released some their best songs yet on their recent album 'Everyone Else'. The Brooklyn-based trio's music-replete with lo-fi guitar, abrasive vocals and lyrics full of awkward yet affecting metaphors alongside blunt emotional confessions..."
- Alternative Press

"Everyone's Else stands out, making the two year period wait worth every moment" 4/5 Boobs
-BUST Magazine

"Tender fingerpicking passages lurch into crashing speed-metal crescendos, loping country-western equestrian odes edge into menacing horror-movie pizzicato and back again."
- Village Voice

"...a rip-roaring quick hit that places Leah Wellbaum’s gravelly voice over some ferocious-sounding guitars."
-Stereogum

“Listen to songs by Slothrust, and you'll hear aggressive sounds that hearken back to early-'90s rock bands like Nirvana and Dinosaur Jr. Listen more closely, and you'll also hear elements of the blues that the band’s members learned when they met in their college's jazz program."
NPR MUSIC

"Slothrust exemplify how colorful, fun and insightful rock music can be. The best kind of weird."

Autostraddle has premiered the video for Slothrust's single "Pigpen", the final track off their 2016 album 'Everyone Else'. When talking about the video, lead singer Leah Wellbaum said, “We wanted to make a music video that stands on its own as a piece of art. Everyone who worked on this had an extreme focus on compelling, surreal imagery and concepts. Our intention was to make a type of music video that we haven’t made before, and don’t see very often.”

Slothrust will tour North America this summer including a performance at Lollapalooza on 8/4. The band's most recent album 'Everyone Else' is out now on Dangerbird Records and the band has released a wealth of visual material to accompany it. Music videos for "Sleep Eater""Horseshoe Crab", "Rotten Pumpkin" and "Like A Child Hiding Behind Your Tombstone", as well as live videos for "Rotten Pumpkin""Horseshoe Crab""Pigpen", and the Louis Armstrong classic "What a Wonderful World". The band just finished wrapping tour dates supporting Highly Suspect.”
