Debut record announced through Matador. Portrait by Joseph Tovey Frost

So we've been waiting for this since we saw their first ever gig with British Sea Power back in January, 2012 - Savages have unveiled details of their debut album. Silence Yourself will be released via Matador and their own Pop Noir imprint on May 6th 2013, with an as-yet-unheard outside gigs track 'She Will' streaming above. The album - which we have heard and are pleased with its ferocity - was produced by Johnny Hostile and Rodaidh McDonald. Savages issue a statement, thus. “SAVAGES is not trying to give you something you didn’t have already, it is calling within yourself something you buried ages ago, it is an attempt to reveal and reconnect your PHYSICAL and EMOTIONAL self and give you the urge to experience your life differently, your girlfriends, your husbands, your jobs, your erotic life and the place music occupies in your life. Because we must teach ourselves new ways of POSITIVE MANIPULATIONS, music and words are aiming to strike like lightning, like a punch in the face, a determination to understand the WILL and DESIRES of the self. This album is to be played loud in the foreground.” SAVAGES, 2013
