Slaves have released a video for their track Spit It Out and announced a November UK tour.

Spit It Out is taken from the British punk duo’s upcoming second album Take Control, released on September 30 via Virgin EMI.

Isaac Holman and Laurie Vincent previously said the follow-up to 2015’s debut album Are You Satisfied? is heavier, and compared it to a planned pregnancy.

Vincent commented: “It’s like the difference between accidentally having a baby and planning a baby. You know how some bands go away and say they’re gonna get in the studio and see what happens? We were like, ‘We’re gonna make an album, and it’s gonna be like this.’”

The UK tour kicks off in Bexhill De La Warr on November 10 and finishes in London on November 30.

Asked by TeamRock earlier this year to describe what punk means to Slaves, Holman said: “People have got to put you in a box somehow. Punk is an attitude, but it’s also something that’s been and gone. We’re on to something new I think.

“We’re more than happy to be related back to punk because we’re definitely influenced and inspired by it, but it’s something more than that for us.“

Take Control is available for pre-order now in a variety of formats and bundles. It includes a guest appearance from Beastie Boys star Mike D on the track Consume Or Be Consumed.
