This video was shot by Beirut.com during Slutterhouse’s album launch concert for ANOTHER LIE. The event was organized by The Basement and was part of the C U NXT SAT parties.
I have spent the past few days giving a lot of thought before I was able to release this statement. But now I’m sure about what I want and so I am ready to share it.
I take my job very seriously. I feel blessed to be able to do what I do, and I do not take it lightly at all. I feel blessed to be surrounded by amazing supporters and fans who make every single negative thing about this business worth the trip. In return, I want to be able to give you everything I got every time I step on that stage. And the reason why we limit our concerts in Lebanon to one per year is because it is very hard for me to find myself physically and psychologically ready to get up there and know that I will be able to give you my best.
And I don’t feel ready this time. I know myself and I don’t want everybody to come on Friday night and risk having me not showing up because I won’t be feeling good. Or even worse, risk giving you a bad or sloppy performance only because the date was set and I had to do it no matter what. The fact is, I do not have to do it no matter what. Lately I have been abusing myself physically and psychologically and I’m simply not ready to face you right now.
Concerts are meant to be fabulous. Or postponed.
I’m just sorry to let everybody down. I want to thank my supportive and precious band mates. I want to thank the Basement management for being so understanding. And I want to thank you for baring with me. I am doing this out of respect for you, because I want to be able to give you my best. And I promise that a Slutterhouse concert will happen within a few weeks from now, on the 21st of January 2012. I promise.
Peace on you and everyone you love.
See you soon x
We are so happy to finally make this new single public. The song is called “Stop Me” and is the first single off our new album Another Lie, scheduled to be released by the end of December 2011.
To celebrate this release and because we love nostalgia, you may also click HERE for a free download of our first album Made In Dance that was released exactly two years ago.
Dig it, and share it.
Love to all x
Tune in to LBC (local and satellite) this Friday, October 28, at around 5pm, Beirut time (GMT+2). I’ve been invited to a show called Helwi Beirut and am going to be interviewed by one of these lovely five ladies below. Which one is your guess?
People outside Lebanon can tune in to http://www.lbcgroup.tv/, register for free, and watch the interview live.
Coincidence? Not so sure. Especially if we take in consideration the huge international noise that the No Rights No Women campaign made last March 2011. In any case, I think it is safe to say that my beautiful team ate Olivier Zahm’s alive on this one.
