Slot Machine is set to perform at JBTV on their first US tour.

It’s not easy for a Thai rock band to stay at the top of their game and maintain their popularity for 10 years. But Slot Machine is that band. And they continue to grow, becoming better musicians, expanding their horizons and gaining new fans by the day.

Slot Machine released their self-title debut album in 2004 featuring a hit singles ‘Ro’(I’m Waiting For You). Followed by ‘Mutation’ in 2006, produced by Scott Moffatt, former member of Canadian boy band The Moffatts. Scott added a new element to their music, and the album produced two megahits: ‘Phan’ (Yesterday) and ‘Kham Sutthai’ (Song for U). Shortly after the release of their second album, Slot Machine was chosen as opening act for Linkin Park’s Bangkok concert in front of 30,000 fans.

In 2008, the band released their third studio album, ‘Grey’. It was a more challenging album featuring a more experimental sound on songs like ‘Fan’ (Dream) and ‘Rue Du’ (Grey Sky), but fans embraced the band’s continued musical evolution and their outstanding live performances saw the band continuing to grow.

However, it was their fourth studio album ‘Cell’ in 2011, which really shot Slot Machine into the stratosphere as one of Thailand’s greatest rock bands. The Montonn “Jay” Jira-produced set was named ‘Album of The Year’ and the group was pronounced ‘Best Group Artist’ in numerous media awards. Hit tracks from the album included ‘Chan Chao’ (Goodbye) and ‘Phra Athit Songklot’ (Golden Age).

Following on the success of ‘Cell’, 2013 was Slot Machine’s golden year. They were nominated for the ‘Best Southeast Asian Act’ at the MTV Europe Music Awards, and their ongoing work with MTV on the network’s Human Trafficking Awareness concerts culminated in the band performing on the same stage as Jason Mraz at the MTV EXIT LIVE IN MYANMAR charity concert held to raise awareness about human-trafficking at the People’s Square, Schwedagon, Yangon, before 70,000 people.

Slot Machine was again nominated for Best Southeast Act at the MTV EMA’s in 2014 – and in the same year released their fifth album, ‘Rainbow’, produced by talented Australian producer, Daniel Denholm. The album included the hits ‘Rung’(Rainbow) and ‘Khloem’ which had over 65 million hits on YouTube.

And now, the band’s next adventure involves taking on the international market. Slot Machine’s first all-English album will be released in early 2016. The move might seem like a big gamble, but Slot Machine has always been willing to take risks, and the band members believe the time is right. With the help of six-time Grammy Award-winning producer, Steve Lillywhite who has worked with U2, The Rolling Stones, The Killers and 30 Seconds to Mars, the album heralds a new chapter in the band’s career.

Slot Machine released the first single ‘Give It All To You’ from their upcoming album ‘Spin The World’ on July 27th, 2015. This very first international single of the band has not released only in Thailand but also in other 14 countries under Sony Music distribution i.e. Australia, China, Egypt, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, United Arab Emirates and Taiwan.

In 2016, the band has performed at prestigious live music festivals such as Japan Fuji Rocks, Korea’s Jisan Valley, Taiwan’s Super Slippa, Singapore’s Music Matters, Tokyo’s Classic Rock Awards and Hong Kong’s Clockenflap.
