SAVAGES (2016)

Already announced for MONA’s annual Dark Mofo winter festival, SAVAGES today reveal that they will play two East Coast Australian headline shows this June. The four-piece will take in Sydney’s Metro Theatre on Thursday 16th June, and will conclude their run at Melbourne’s Corner Hotel on Sunday 19th June.

TICKETS FOR ALL SHOWS GO ON SALE TUESDAY 12 APRIL, 9am (Local Time)

Since they last toured Australia around the 2014 Laneway Festival, Savages have released an acclaimed new album, ‘Adore Life’, played live on US talk shows Jimmy Kimmel Live! and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and continue to tour extensively, taking in iconic venues including Manchester’s Albert Hall and San Francisco’s The Fillmore.

Front-woman Jehnny Beth is described by Music Feeds as “intense, poetic and just commanding enough to cut those puppet-strings which so often leave other performers dangling without a sense of their own gravity”, also noting that “Savages are a spectacle with an instantly apparent magnetism. They’re tight, no fuss, efficient, and exact, but with a perfect amount of dissonance and discontent at the base of their sound.”

Current album single ‘The Answer’ is a frenetic guitar-fuelled anthem, led by the intensity of Jehnny Beth’s raw vocals. Watch the music video for ‘The Answer’ here. Released in January, ‘Adore Life’ was recorded in RAK Studios, London in April 2015. It is a record about change and the power to change, about sticking to your guns and toughing it out. It’s about now, not tomorrow. Pitchfork has described ‘Adore Life’ as “… more alive than Silence Yourself – in part because it feels more human, in part because it’s telling you to be as loud as possible.”
