Who are They?: The Slang is a musical trio hailing from Columbus, OH. The group consists of John Bobo (vocals/multi-instrumentalist), John Newsome (bass), and Michael Dillon (drums). The Slang will be releasing their debut self-titeld EP on September 2nd 2014.

When did they start? 2012

Whey Should You Care? This trio makes some rocking music. Their lead single “Feels Like Work” features alternative powerpop rock riffs without the bubble gum. The Slang brings back the best of 90’s rock. Their music reminds me of Goo Goo Dolls meets Third Eye Blind. It is a refreshing sound that stands out and captures your attention. The sweet vocals of Bobo are engaging. Their musical talents have earned them invitations to several premier music conferences including MPMF, NXNE, and CMJ. Their music has also been used in various mainstream outlets including HBO, USA network, and Troma Films.
