Slick Shoes is an American punk rock band from Antelope Valley, California, United States. The band formed in 1994 and made their first release as a self-titled EP in 1996. In 2022, Loudwire magazine named the "Wake Up Screaming" album one of the 50 greatest pop-punk albums of all time.Slick Shoes released six full-length CDs, four of them on Seattle-based Tooth & Nail Records. They also released an EP, a split with Autopilot Off and a greatest hits CD entitled The Biggest & The Best, featuring three previously unreleased songs. The band had gone through numerous line-up changes over the years, but singer Ryan Kepke and Joe Nixon (drums) performed on every release, while Jeremiah Brown (bass) played on all except their final album, Far From Nowhere (2003), released by SideOneDummy Records instead of the Tooth & Nail. The third album, Wake Up Screaming (2000) got production from Bill Stevenson of Black Flag fame.The band's success rode the back of the mid-to-late '90s Christian punk popularity wave that spurred churched teens around the nation to embrace the genre and even start rock clubs, such as the 9th Hour in Richmond and The New Union in Minneapolis. They toured alongside both secular and Christian acts (most notably bands such as Face to Face and MxPx, respectively). In 2002, they toured with Mighty Mighty Bosstones; in 2003, they played the Vans Warped Tour and were featured in Warped Tour DVD in 2004. The Jonas Brothers, when teens, were fans and traveled to their shows.
