The Sleights
The Sleights is a punk rock band hailing from Colorado Springs, Colorado. Formed in early 2014 the four piece has self-released five EPs, and LP and played many shows along the front range of Colorado, as well as 4 tours throughout the midwest and west coasts. Pulling from its strong punk rock and rock and roll roots, the band keeps the music short and simple, and the live shows fast and fun. The Sleights recorded their first LP in late 2018, which was released February of 2019. It was a split release between Rad Girlfriend Records and Swap Cabbage Records. A second record is planned and the band hopes to hit the studio early 2020.
