Slagerij formed in 2007 and are a high energy 3 piece ska-punk band from Swindon, Wiltshire, UK. Comprising of Martin Montier (Guitar) Matt Dennehy (Bass) and Janek Szuster (Drums) with their roots and influences from every aspect of ska and punk. Late 2008 saw them release their first E.P. OH YEAH!! and soon after they went on to build their foundations and breathe new life into the South West punk scene playing mostly local shows. In 2010 Slagerij recorded and produced their self-titled debut album, expanding their fanbase and pushing further afield across the UK, also achieving a brief stint on a Westcoast USA tour playing in places like Las Vegas, Los Angeles and San Francisco. 2011 saw the release of their Second self produced album ‘Swim for Shore’ and a sold out hometown release show with more tour dates and various support slots with bigger bands at bigger venues.

The trio have honed their skills over these last few years with solid touring and exciting live performances up and down the country working with some big band names from past and present at some of the country’s most reputable and prestigious venues from the “toilet circuit” -The Fleece (Bristol) King Tuts (Glasgow) 100 Club (London) – all the way up to the larger capacity touring venues – The Ritz (Manchester), Rock City (Nottingham) various 02 Academys (Bristol, Birmingham, Liverpool, Oxford, London Islington, Shepherds Bush Empire) – and literally EVERYWHERE else in between!

Slagerij have had the pleasure of touring with and sharing the stage with lots of legendary bands including the likes of: Dead Kennedys, Anti-Nowhere League, UK Subs, Buzzcocks, Stiff Little Fingers and more up-to-date ska-punk bands like Big D & The Kids Table, Random Hand, Assorted Jelly Beans, The Skints, Mustard Plug, Spunge, 4ft Fingers and tons more!

Everything these guys have ever gained has gone straight back into what they love doing and it definitely shows, always winning the crowds over. If it’s high energy, big hitting sounds you are looking for then look no further than Slagerij and strap yourself in for one hell of an infectious in-your-face ska-punk ride!

In 2016, Slagerij hit the road for a 9 date tour alongside ska-punkers Spunge and made various other appearances including Rebellion Festival. Also the guys have recently been working on and writing new material to release a brand new full length album which is set to be released in 2018. Keep them eyes and ears open for more updates soon.
