Savages announce tour in a stunning manner, silencing EVERYONE.

Hey dude, you’re into Savages by now, right? (cuz if you’re not… woe betide you; you’re WAY BEHIND THE TIMES.) Great, well then I probably don’t need to explain anything here at all, because you’re already up on it! See you later, fellow hip-as-balls Savages fanatic! …Wait. What’s that? Ohhhhhhh, I see: you haven’t gotten into them just because you’re waiting for the TMT review to tell you whether or not their new album fits your taste! Perfectly acceptable excuse. Let me just give you the rundown real quick-like.

First, it’s UK stuff. Credible as shit. Second, they released their hotly-anticipated, post-punk, post-art, post-cool, post-everything album Silence Yourself this week on Matador/Pop Noire. Bleak, arty, rockin’. Pick up a copy. Third, on Thursday, May 9, they will be live-streaming “a very special concert event” in partnership with The Creators Project at a place in London called The Ministry of Sound (which this press release I’m holding says is an “intentionally unusual choice of venue for a guitar band with one of the best surround sound systems in the world”). You definitely should tune in here at 9:15 PM GMT (4:15 EST) to get caught up to speed. In fact, the whole night is curated by the band and includes sets from the band’s producer, Johnny Hostile, Changeover, and Curfew. I know, it’s a lot of names. Better keep this news story up on your smartphone while you watch on your tablet.

Anyway, fourth! Let’s see… oh yes; forth, there’s a friggin’ tour. Whenever there’s a new record, there’s gotta be a tour, right? Right. Here it is. Yeah, you’ll notice that there’s some shows in Berlin and Prague and shit with Portishead and Iggy Pop in London. No big deal, whatever. Try to come off unimpressed.
