Profile
The Slants hail from Portland, Oregon, and are one of the only, if not the only, Asian dance/rock bands in the country. They have been exploding with success fueled by anime and Asian-culture obsessed fans even before a lineup was fully established.

It's been said that everything that could be done in music has been done already. It's been said that new artists are inherently boring, with not much new that is original or creative to offer. But those people hadn't heard The Slants (yet), a band who has everyone screaming for some "Chinatown Dance Rock."
