Savages Announce U.S. Tour
UK post-rockers Savages have themselves quite a spring and summer, opening for both Portishead and Iggy and the Stooges throughout the United Kingdom and Europe. But this ferocious act has something else to announce – a summer headlining tour throughout the United States, stretching most of July and a few dates in October at the Austin City Limits Music Festival. The band will be supporting their raucous debut album, Silence Yourself. Pick it up before the shows so you can rock out alongside.
Savages was formed in 2011 by guitarist Gemma Thompson and singer Jehnny Beth, and their rise to the top has been a fast one. Thompson cites their name was derived from favorite book The Lord of the Flies (makes a lot of sense, no?). They’ve been critical and media darlings since their first double A-side release in 2012, having been nominated for the BBC’s Sound of 2013 poll and well-reviewed at 2013’s Coachella Music and Arts Festival in Indio, California.
