Savages and acclaimed filmmaker Giorgio Testi have collaborated to created a film to accompany the brand new track Shut Up, taken from Savages forthcoming debut, Silence Yourself, out 6/7 May. The film, which is directed and edited by the Grammy-nominated Testi, captures the beauty and intensity of a Savages’ live performance to full effect.
Commencing with singer Jehnny Beth intoning the poem / statement-of-intent from the front cover of the band’s forthcoming debut album and then moving into a full performance of the track Shut Up, the film has been premiered today by Dazed Digital.
Meanwhile, Savages today announce a unique London headline show. The show will take place at the Ministry Of Sound on Thursday 9th May, with tickets going on sale at 9.30am tomorrow, Friday 19th April from www.gigsandtours.com
This special, intimate show will see Savages taking over the world-famous club to create a unique one-off gig environment, with surround sound PA and the band performing in-the-round, surrounded on all sides by the audience. The whole evening will be curated by Savages, with films, DJ sets and special composed support slot from the band’s producer Johnny Hostile. Anyone who attended the band’s recent headline show at London’s Electric Ballroom venue will have an idea of what to expect. More exciting details on the show to come.
