Savages are to follow up their rampaging summer festival performances with their biggest London headline show to date at London’s O2 Academy.

The double Mercury Music Prize nominees will play the 5,000-capacity Brixton venue on November 25.

It comes at the end of a big year for the Anglo-French post-punk outfit, which saw the release of their critically acclaimed second album Adore Life in January.

Known for their incendiary live shows, the quartet of Jehnny Beth (vocals),  Gemma Thompson (guitar), Ayse Hassan (bass), Fay Milton (drums) have spent much of the year touring the globe in support of the album.

One of the highlights of this year’s stellar Glastonbury line-up, the band also performed at London’s legendary 100 Club and at the Leeds and Reading festivals.
