'Halfway There' will be released Worldwide May 26 via EMP LABEL GROUP, (May 10th in Japan via EMP/UNIVERSAL) the US based label of Megadeth bassist David Ellefson. HALFWAY THERE, the follow up to 2015’s independently released REFLECTIONS IN A REAR VIEW MIRROR, is a stunning return to form for Slaughter, channeling the familiar Hard Rock sensibility of classic-era SLAUGHTER releases like 'Stick it to Ya' and 'The Wild Life' on “Hey You” and emotionally-charged title track “Halfway There”, with a mature, progressive, Metal bent, evidenced on cuts like “Devoted”, “Conspiracy”, and “Reckless”.
HALFWAY THERE is produced and co-mixed by Slaughter with John Cranfield (AFI, Andy Grammer), with art by famed horror/album artist “Mister” Sam Shearon (Rob Zombie, Iron Maiden, KISS, Clive Barker).
The album is available for pre-order now on CD and LP via empmerch.com
Mark will also stay busy on the road with his namesake band SLAUGHTER, who will also play several US dates through 2017, including a performance at ROCKLAHOMA May 26th.
