From their site:
“THE SLANTS are an Asian dance/rock band from Portland. OR. Formed in 2006, the band features members of The Stivs, Son of Rust, and Evening at the Black House. Their music is a cacophony of melodic rock intricacy tempered by darker, dance themes with anthemic choruses and shattering hooks reminiscent of groups such as The Faint, Depeche Mode, Daft Punk, and Joy Division-except with an asian spin. Perla Cadena of Sony BMG Music Entertainment claims
‘If you like danceable rock or anything Asian, you’ll love THE SLANTS!'”
