Slaves change name to Rain City

More than a year after revealing plans to change their name due to its racial connotations, post-hardcore quintet Slaves have now announced that their new name is Rain City.

The band explains: "It was in Manchester, England aka Rainy City, that the five of us met. Our new name - Rain City - is a nod to the serendipity that brought us together and a reminder to keep looking up even when there's a cloud overhead. Thank you to all the fans that have stuck around!"

If there any bands out there named Chain(s), Shackle(s), Cotton, Whip(s), Plantation or similar I wonder if they are changing their names, too.

"We thought this was a better background to share, than the place in 'Rain City' we met being a slave auction."

sorry guys, my band—Congolese Laborers Mining Coltan At Gunpoint—has decided to change our name to "Springfield Area Senior High School" to really get back to our roots.

anonymous 10/17/2021 10:32:13 AM

Disturbed should change the name of their hit single 'Down with the sickness' due to its COVID 19 implications. How dare they not address this. 2022- Disturbed/Rain City co-headline world woke tour

The logic of 2021.

evil_hero 10/18/2021 7:24:01 AM
