Can you believe it’s nearly a year since the release of Silence Yourself? In that time I moved house, reached an age milestone and got a dog. Not to mention changing my hair colour three times and going on a juice cleanse. Pretty sure some sorta midlife crisis thing is going on, especially as I’m sharing all this on the www right now.
To mark their milestone of one year since the release of their debut album, Savages are releasing a 12″ of two new tracks. Recorded live at the London Forum show on November 6, 2013 – exactly halfway through the band’s year – the record captures the full sonic intensity of Savages live performance on the 10-minute-plus ‘Fuckers’, the live set’s notorious closer; as well as their more mesmeric side on a sinuous cover of Suicide’s timeless ‘Dream Baby Dream’.
‘Fuckers / Dream Baby Dream’ is out May 5/6 dependent on what side of the ocean you’re on. 12″ vinyl and Digital Download.
You can preorder the 12″ from the following:
Or if you’re digitally minded, iTunes
The release will coincide with two Savages-curated Pop Noire nights in east London, the first at The Shacklewell Arms on ‘Fuckers’ release day (May 5th), and the second at Birthdays on the anniversary of the ‘Silence Yourself’ album (May 6th).
Here is the line-up so far, with more artists to be confirmed:
