For Matt 05:49
it's taking it's toll keeping track of the years you're at the front of my mind but you'll never be here you weren't made for this world such a fragile thing so we washed you away in a rainstorm in spring but i'll keep trying to picture you and i'll keep saying your name and i'll grow into the imprints that you made i'm older now than you ever got to be i'm making memories for the years you never got to see i'm older now and i'll keep on getting older as my scars keep healing over each and every day it's breaking me down trying to keep myself up my nerves are so raw but my feelings are numb i'll hold you close to my chest and i'll be better for you i'll be the man that you always wanted to i still hear you in the bass guitar of shitty songs we wrote when we were sixteen i still see you in the architecture of dead west yorkshire towns that we grew up in

about

Slash Fiction is the beating heart at the centre of Sheffield’s one-band emo queercore scene. A raucous five-piece made up of Beans (they/her/him, vox/bass), Dan (he/him, guitar/vox), Jamie (he/him, drums), Jess (they/them, buttons/vox) and Sean (he/him, guitar/noises), Slash Fic’s trademark Sad Bangers run the gamut of emotions from sadness to anger to angry sadness.

The band formed in early 2018 and dropped their first EP "Flowers" the same year, showcasing a set of noisy songs that cover gender dysphoria, abusers in the music industry and the joys of day-drinking in parks, honed through gigs around South Yorkshire’s DIY scene. Their latest release, "For Matt", is a heartfelt ode to loss, grief and recovery that also happens to absolutely slap.
