3/5/2023 - Release Date Announced For Scorched Earth - Black Heart 

I've been working with Gotta Groove Records on nailing down a solid release date, and we finally got one! June 23, 2023 is the day. By this date I will have the limited edition vinyl and cassettes ready to ship out. Preorders for the limited edition packages will open on April 10, and when you preorder you'll get an instant download of the full album before the official release date! Sorry, no preorder for digital. This offer is only valid while supplies last, and it won't be available for long. We're only making 100 records and 50 cassettes, so don't wait or you might miss out. Preorders will be exclusively available at

12/26/2022 - New Video for "Everything Follows This" 

I should've waited to share this but I liked it so much that I went ahead and released it early. I've just finished up a music video for the song "Everything Follows This." I am currently gathering up the artwork for the new record and will announce a release date as soon as I possibly can. In the meantime, check this out.


12/10/22 - New Song "Goddamnit, It's Christmas" now available  

Seeing as how it's the holiday season and no one would ever expect me to release a Christmas song, I went ahead and did just that. It's no more of a Christmas song than Merle Haggard's "If We Make It Through December" was but whatever. Master lacquers are about to be cut at Well Made Music in Bristol, VA, and then it'll be off to the press. I'm looking at a late spring 2023 release date. As soon as I'm confident that I can nail down a solid date, I will let you know and open up a pre-order. The vinyl is going to be a very limited edition 180g record, so make sure you keep an ear to the ground if you want one. They'll go fast. As always, thanks for your support and have a safe and happy holiday season!

Head over to Bandcamp to get the new song

10/17/22 - Recording Session at Bandit Ranch 

Busy as hell around here. Last week, four friends and companions from all over the US converged on Bandit Ranch in Dolores, CO to record a bunch of songs. After five days of recording for 12-14 hours a day, there's just a little bit left to do on the new Slackeye Slim album which still doesn't have a name. I'll be putting the finishing touches on it and sending it off for mastering as soon as I can. Release date soon. For now, check out these pictures taken by Trevor Richards, who also engineering the recording session.


8/12/22 - Videos 

Here are a few videos I found stashed away. 

Juniper Tree from Giving My Bones to the Western Lands

No Place I Belong. Unreleased song written several years ago.

Traditional (I think) song played on a longneck mountain banjo I built.

7/31/22 - New Album Tracklist 

My fingers are sore as hell from playing bass, and I smell like shit from sweating in a hot garage for a few days. I finished up most of the writing and demoing for the new album this weekend. I just have a couple things left to do - for example, editing out that dumb placeholder line about stealing a birthday cake from a child - and then we'll be ready to record. If all goes according to the plan, you'll have no idea what I'm talking about. I'm really excited about getting this record out and into your hands.

It's still untitled. However I will say that it's a concept album written from the perspective of a circular firing squad. You figure out what that means. For me, it's about trying to be better than the ones who came before you, and also about realizing how stuck you are to the ones who came before, even if you don't want to be. We'll see what you think. It's the culmination of a lifetime of trouble, sorted out over a bunch of campfires in the desert here in the Four Corners area.

Coming out from Pittsburgh to record us will be my good friend Trevor Richards of the stoner/doom metal band The Long  Hunt. I'm also going to be joined by drummer Mario Garcia from The Imperial Rooster, and lead guitarist extraordinaire Jered Davis of Midnight Backhand.

I'm struggling not to post a couple of these pre-session demos, but as soon as I can share something, I will. I think you're gonna like this one. I've never worked harder or been more honest on a record before this one. More info soon. Best I can do right now is offer up the tracklist. Thanks for your support. I'll catch you soon.

6/25/22 - New Website + New Music Soon! 

Howdy! I just launched a new website. Getting ready to record a new album, so I figured it'd be a good idea to have some kinda web presence. The songs are just about done. I don't want to say too much just yet, but I'm really happy with it. I've been working on it on and off for five years or so. I'm hoping to have it out by the end of 2022 or beginning of 2023.

I'll keep updating this site as I get time, but just keep an eye out for news from me. And if you don't mind, tell your friends on your social medias and whatnots and what-have-yous. I'm not really into that sort of thing. Slackeye Slim is not promoted or marketed by anyone. Not even by me most of the time. If you like what I'm doing, please spread the word. I'd sure appreciate it. Talk soon.


I don't want yer money, Pardner. Digital downloads are always free, but donations are kindly appreciated. Physical copies are as cheap as I can make 'em. Sorry about the shipping costs. I'm just tryin' to break even.
