Savages – shortlisted for the 2013 Barclaycard Mercury Prize

Today we’re incredibly proud to let you know that Savages have been shortlisted for the 2013 Barclaycard Mercury Prize, one of twelve albums nominated for the best British Album of the Year, for their debut Silence Yourself (purchase from the band/Matador Store/iTunes, or listen at Spotify), released in May on Pop Noire/Matador Records.

Last week Pitchfork shared the new session video for ‘I Am Here’ – we’d advise you take a moment to absorb the full impact of their honed live shows, then get yourself out to see them play as soon as you’re able to.  Their latest US and Canadian tour started last night, with several months of touring ahead of them across Europe and North America, check the full list of live dates below.
