SAVAGES OVER LONDON – Post-Punk Quartet Announce New Live Date


Savages will play The Dome in London’s Tufnell Park on December 3 as they warm up for their full UK tour in the New Year. 

The intimate gig, which follows a show at Berlin’s Berghain Kantine on November 30, comes as the band reveal another track from their hotly-anticpated second album Adore Life.

T.I.W.Y.G. (This Is What You Get) is another pulsating cut, building on the momentum set by latest single The Answer reviewed here earlier this month.

Savages’ rythmn section Ayşe Hassan (bass) and Fay Milton (drums) drive the song along at a furious pace as frontwoman Jehnny Beth howls ‘This is what you get if you mess with love”.

But the real star here is Gemma Thompson, whose incendiary guitar acrobatics illuminate and elevate the music, shifting the mood with a reflective middle eight, before powering through to an exhilarating climax.

Set for release on January 22, Adore Life was recorded at RAK Studios, London. in April and produced by Johnny Hostile.

The band say the album is about love, but don’t go expecting too many power ballads, as Savages clearly still have plenty of anger to discharge and wounds to cauterise.

Tickets for the December 3 show are available through

A full UK tour in support of the album follows in the New Year, beginning with a show at Bexhill’s De La Warr Pavilion on February 18 and culminating with a performance at London’s Roundhouse on March 17. Full details available from
