Awarded “Best EP Rock”, Feb 2017
“a slow boat to china conjures some of the best retro-rock going nowadays; their latest EP carries numerous bonafide smash singles, including amores perros and myopic, and the band’s net effect is incredibly rousing.”
- Akademia Music Awards
Assembled in 2014, a slow boat to china has become one of the southeast’s premier original rock groups. Drawing on influences from Soundgarden, Kings X, Jane’s Addiction, Radiohead, and Failure, their songwriting style involves textured sonics, haunting melodies and visceral grooves. The songs are a study in contrast - inspired by the old and the new; hard, but fragile; strange, yet somehow familiar.
Supporting the release of their upcoming 3rd album and current single release, mirrors, a slow boat to china continues to gain momentum headlining premier rock venues in the Southern U.S. and is quickly gaining a strong following internationally through radio airplay and social media campaigns.
myopic, the band's 2017 release, was recorded in the band’s home base of Atlanta with Mike Froedge (Black Label Society, doubleDrive, and now asbtc drummer) producing and Jeff Tomei (Smashing Pumpkins, Jerry Cantrell) engineering.
a slow boat to china is an all original band based in Atlanta, GA available for clubs, venues, special events, benefit shows, festivals, acoustic shows or just about anywhere we can play. While we may do the occasional cover tune just for fun, we do not accept offers for cover or tribute gigs. We look forward to putting together a successful event with you.
