Slawterhaus 5 is a Winston-Salem, NC based Punk Rock/Power Pop outfit, ready to set the stage on fire. Bringing together 4 of the most talented and focused individuals to make the most creative and fresh music heard today.
While listening to Vel Indica, one may conjure up the spirit influences of several acts such as Joy Division, The Pixies, Radiohead, Bob Dylan, Neutral Milk Hotel and Jeff Buckley to name a few. However, they also sound like none of these with their own distinct and original style.
Janus 4-14's music, like their live shows, consists of sweaty, energetic, rock-n-roll with punk overtones. They've been compared to Elvis Costello & the Attractions, SeBADoh, Pixies and Weezer.
