Kent's punk two-piece Slaves are celebrating the fifth anniversary of their first release by giving fans the chance to be at a special gig where it all began.

The pair, former Oakwood Park pupil Laurie Vincent, from Maidstone, and former Hugh Christie pupil Isaac Holman from Southborough, tweeted the news to fans today.

The special show marks the release of their debut record five years ago, Sugar Coated Bitter Truth (SCBT), and will be at the Tunbridge Wells Forum on Thursday, July 20.

"To celebrate, we are going to be playing the record at The Tunbridge Wells Forum, where we recorded it & our story began."

The record was made at The Forum and the gig will be five years to the day of its release.

It is being staged with BBC Music Introducing in Kent. Fans need to sign up before midnight tonight for the chance to buy a pair of tickets.
