Slaves Change Their Name To Rain City

Slaves have officially changed their name to Rain City. This news comes after the band previously said that they were planning to scrap the Slaves moniker due to its “racial connotations.”

The group commented:

“It was in Manchester, England aka Rainy City, that the five of us met. Our new name – Rain City – is a nod to the serendipity that brought us together and a reminder to keep looking up even when there’s a cloud overhead. We’re so proud to call this thing our own. To our incredible fans, we appreciate you and are forever grateful for your support. This new album is for you.”
