“Vancouver BC is quickly becoming known for its underground punk roots, and bands like Mediaslaves are just one of a plethora of super rad outfits that you should be paying attention to.” - Dental Records Music News, New York.
Mediaslaves is a Canadian punk rock band from Vancouver, British Columbia. Aggressive, melodic, catchy and heavy, Mediaslaves' sound is best described as a grungy punk-rock gangbang. Take influences from bands like Nirvana, Refused, Cancer Bats, Sum 41, Deftones, Plasmatics, the Distillers and more, the trio delivers nostalgic sounds with a modern twist.
Without help from any record labels, PR companies or artist-management services, Mediaslaves are garnering the attention of both national and international press and radio. Tracks from the band’s debut EP Fear and Loathing in Outer Space have been publicly showcased across Canada, Scotland, Australia, England, India, Costa Rica and the United States thus far. Their first single "Fleeks and Geeks" was officially playlisted by influential punk rock label Fat Wreck Chords for their AIDS Bike Ride Charity event. The music video for “Anxiety” hit the film festival circuit, being officially selected for the International Music Video Awards and Lift-Off Global Network Film Festival.
Australian publication Punktuation! Magazine called the track "Manipulate Me" "catchy as fuck" and the Moshville Times in England named Mediaslaves their Band of the Day in October 2020. Dental Records Music News in New York, USA simply called Mediaslaves a "super rad outfit that you should be paying attention to."
