Mark Slaughter releases new track ahead new solo album “Halfway There”.


Slaughter vocalist Mark Slaughter recently announced his second solo album, Halfway There, which will be released in May. The track “Hey You” has been released for your listening pleasure!

Halfway There, the follow-up to 2015’s Reflections in a Rear View Mirror, is returning to form for Slaughter, who channels the familiar hard-rock sensibility of such classic Slaughter releases as Stick it to Ya and The Wild Life on “Hey You,” “Halfway There,” “Devoted” and other tracks.

“My first solo record was kinda getting back on the horse, so to speak,” Slaughter says. “I mean doing everything and recording; I’m taking on a lot more tasks as an engineer/producer/writer on all this because I’m doing everything.

“The record is basically … I spend a lot of time writing songs, and things just grow out of me. Ill be woken up in the middle of the night from nowhere, and the song’s just in my head and I just exorcise the demons and there you have it. I guess what it is is, an artist makes art. And I’ve really come to the fact that since we haven’t made a Slaughter record in so long, it’s one of those things that I still have to make the art. That’s what I do. That’s what I love to do, and that’s what I’ll continue to do.”

Halfway There will be released May 26 in North America by Megadeth bassist David Ellefson’s EMP Label Goup/AMPED and EMP/SPV in Europe and May 10in Japan via EMP Label Group/Universal.

Halfway There is available for pre-order on CD and LP via empmerch.com.
Slaughter will play several US dates throughout 2017, including a May 26performance at Rocklahoma.
