'Halfway There' is the follow up to 2015’s independently released 'Reflections in a rear view Mirror', and is a stunning return to form for Mark Slaughter.

Channeling the familiar Hard Rock sensibility of classic era Slaughter releases like 'Stick it to Ya' and 'The Wild Life' on 'Hey You' and emotionally charged title track 'Halfway There', with a mature, Progressive, Metal bent... evidenced on cuts like 'Devoted, Conspiracy' and 'Reckless'. Produced and co-mixed by Mark Slaughter with John Cranfield (AFI, Andy Grammer), with art by famed horror / album artist “Mister” Sam Shearon (Rob Zombie, Iron Maiden, KISS, Clive Barker).

He will play shows in Nagoya, Osaka, and a performance at the Tokyo Metal Summit on May 14th with Ratt, Sebastian Bach, E’nuff Z’nuff and many more.

Not only is 'Halfway There' a blistering showcase of Mark Slaughter’s seemingly never ending vocal abilities, but a glowing testament to his perpetually underserved prowess as a songwriter and multi instrumentalist, handling all production, engineering, songwriting, arrangements, guitar, and the bulk of the album’s instrumentation himself.
