Savages Stream Their Debut Album 'Silence Yourself'

Savages Stream Their Debut Album 'Silence Yourself'

In anticipation of the release of their SILENCE YOURSELF debut album, Savages are streaming the album in full via right now. SILENCE YOURSELF will be released on 6th May 2013 on Matador Records / Pop Noire. Available on LP, CD and download, the album was recorded in north-west London's Fish Factory during a three week period in December 2012, and is produced by Johnny Hostile / Rodaidh McDonald.

The band will also mark album release day with an in-store performance at London's ROUGH TRADE EAST on Monday 6th May. The band will perform songs from SILENCE YOURSELF at 6pm. Wristbands will be allocated to anyone who purchases SILENCE YOURSELF in store on the day of the event, with any additional wristbands given out an hour before the performance.

SAVAGES also recently announced a London headline show at THE MINISTRY OF SOUND on Thursday 9th May. Continuing their search for different ways of performing music, SAVAGES chose to curate the event at THE MINISTRY OF SOUND, an intentionally unusual choice of venue for a guitar band - with one of the best QUADROPHONIC sound systems in the world. Happening the week of their album release, this intimate show will be placed all around the musicians to encourage total IMMERSION and make this experience even more unusual and exciting. The whole evening will be curated by SAVAGES, with films, DJ sets and special composed support slot from the band's producer JOHNNY HOSTILE.

SAVAGES will also be on tour throughout 2013. The full set of tour dates are:
