THE SLANTS - Behind the Scenes of “ADOPTED"

This is a Studio APA exclusive, behind-the-scenes look for The Slants’ new music video for "Adopted,” featuring the aerial artwork, talent, and choreography of AWOL Dance Collective.


The Slants are the first and only all-Asian American dance rock band in the world. Kicking off the band's career at a tiny dive bar in Portland, OR, The Slants soon found themselves on tour and in demand worldwide performing at music halls, colleges, and anime conventions. Within months, they released their debut album "Slanted Eyes, Slanted Hearts" winning multiple awards from the likes of Willamette Week, Rockwired, AsiaXpress, and the Portland Music Awards. Since that first iconic show in 2007, The Slants have been cited as the "Hardest Working Asian American Band (, toured the world relentlessly, rejected a million dollar recording contract, were the first and only Asian band to be a Fender Music artist, and according to U.S Congress, the first rock band to play inside a state library. They've also performed for active troops serving overseas and inside a maximum security prison.
