From the Promoter
“It’s a musical manifestation of the circle-pit experience: Gemma Thompson’s gnarly, gnashing riff powers the dizzying circular motion, Ayşe Hassan’s full-contact basslines leave bruises, while Fay Milton’s kit-toppling rhythm conjures that feeling of being constantly on the run but never quite finding your feet” -Pitchfork (Best New Track)
Savages recently announced that on January 22, 2016 they will release their sophomore album, Adore Life, on Matador Records. The band will bring their brutally spellbinding live show to major markets in 2016, kicking off their world tour in Bexhill, UK on February 18th, and culminating in Austin, TX on April 12th. The full list of tour dates can be found below, and an exclusive fan presale will open on Thursday October 29 at 9am local times, available via savagesband.com/#tour.
It’s about change and the power to change. It’s about metamorphosis and evolution. It’s about sticking to your guns and toughing it out. It’s about now, not tomorrow. It’s about recognizing your potential. It’s about self-doubt and inaction. It’s about you. It’s about me. It’s about you and me and the others. It’s about the choices we make. It’s about finding the poetry and avoiding the cliché. It’s about being the solution, not the problem. It’s about showing weakness to be strong. It’s about digging through your dirt to look for diamonds. It's about claiming your right to think unacceptable thoughts. It’s about boredom and the things we do to drive it away. It’s about being on your own so you can be with people. It’s about knowing what it means to be human and what it might mean one day. It’s about the parts and the sum of the parts. It's about the music and the message: together, one and the same. It’s about bass, guitars, drums, and vocals. It’s about opening-out and never, ever dying. But most of all it’s about love, every kind of love. Love is the answer.
Savages’ second album, Adore Life, was recorded at RAK Studios, London in April 2015. Johnny Hostile was the producer and Richard Woodcraft the engineer. Anders Trentemøller took care of the mixing in Copenhagen.
