Slate announced the August 14th release of Lockdown Live on CD and download, plus related merchandise, with profits to benefit social justice causes, last month. The recordings are drawn from his online shows, which began airing weekly via Facebook Live and Instagram Live on April 4th, and which included a special edition for Martin Guitar's “Jam In Place” online series. They’ve been a smashing success, with recent shows garnering over 6,000 views in just a few days four days. Slate has played over 100 different songs during the series, including originals from his Birds Of Paradox (2012), Imposters & Attractions (2013) and Secret Poetry (2016) solo albums, his 1993 EP The Townshend Tapes, for which The Who’s Pete Townshend acted as executive producer, songs he wrote for the band he founded in the 1990s, The Badge, and covers from artists as diverse as Tom Petty and John Prine to the Psychedelic Furs and the Boomtown Rats. 

Slate has donated 100% of the proceeds from the sales of his merchandise – as well as signed copies of releases by The Beatles, Bob Dylan and others on which he wrote the liner notes, and The Authorized Roy Orbison, the book Slate co-authored with the late-legend’s sons – to Meals Of Gratitude, Black Lives Matter, the North Star Fund, Justice For Julius, the Black Artist Fund and others, while covering the shipping costs out of his own pocket. 

Pre-orders for the August 14th release on CD and download, as well as Lockdown Live T-shirts and bundles including the CD and shirt together, are now available in the store at 

Meanwhile, Slate’s online concert series continues.
