Savages to play series of UK gigs as part of world tour

Band will play eight UK shows

Savages will play eight UK shows as they embark on a world tour in promotion of their forthcoming album ‘Adore Life’.

The group’s follow-up to 2013’s ‘Silence Yourself’ is due for release on January 22 and they kick off their tour shortly after that with dates in London, Bexhill, Cambridge, Glasgow, Manchester and Leeds.

First up though is an appearance at London’s Day of the Dead Festival on November 7, and they’ll return to the city in March for a show at the Roundhouse. Scroll down for details.

The four-piece announced the LP last week alongside a video for new track ‘The Answer’. Speaking about the upcoming album, Savages said: “It’s about change and the power to change. It’s about metamorphosis and evolution. It’s about sticking to your guns and toughing it out. It’s about now, not tomorrow. It’s about recognising your potential. It’s about self-doubt and inaction. It’s about you. It’s about me. It’s about you and me and the others. It’s about the choices we make. It’s about finding the poetry and avoiding the cliché.”

A statement from the band continues: “It’s about being the solution, not the problem. It’s about showing weakness to be strong. It’s about digging through your dirt to look for diamonds. It’s about claiming your right to think unacceptable thoughts. It’s about boredom and the things we do to drive it away. It’s about being on your own so you can be with people. It’s about knowing what it means to be human and what it might mean one day. It’s about the parts and the sum of the parts. It’s about the music and the message: together, one and the same. It’s about bass, guitars, drums, and vocals. It’s about opening-out and never, ever dying. But most of all it’s about love, every kind of love. Love is the answer.”
