"WE DON'T POST SET TIMES TO OUR SHOWS," write the band. "WE WERE THE SUPPORT ONCE. WE WOULDN'T BE HERE IF NOBODY TURNED UP TO WATCH US. SO TURN UP WHEN YOUR TICKET SAYS AND YOU'LL BE FINE."

The group took to Twitter with the message after receiving requests that asked them to share the stage times for their current tour, as reported by the NME. But not all Slaves fans agree with the band's position on catching the opening bands.



What do you think of Slaves' refusal to release set times? Do you agree with the group's reciprocal resolve to support their supporting bands? Sound off in the comments.
