"No one is going to remember this scene, they're going to remember the music in it."
Slaves (US) were voted offVans Warped Tour a week or so ago, but have released a statement saying it was "the best thing to ever happen to our band".
After being kicked off the tour, the band started to raise money to cover $29,000 of debt and reached their target within 48 hours.
This, they say, reminded Jonny Craig and Co. of what's important to them.
"We don't give a fuck about our first week sales, we don't give a fuck about what bands in our scene think of us, and we don't give a fuck about how many followers we have on the internet, unless these followers love music as much as we love music," they say in this message.
What's more, they revealed they will release new album 'Routine Breathing' on August 21 via Artery Recordings.
Watch the video for new track 'Burning Our Morals Away' below.
They close: "No one is going to remember this scene, they're going to remember the music in it. It's time to remember what it's about."
