Savages’ Jehnny Beth says band are “going to take a break”

Beth has a few solo projects in the pipeline

Savages‘ Jehnny Beth has spoken of the band’s future, stating that they plan on taking a break.

The band released their second album ‘Adore Life’ earlier this year; NME described it as “an album of love songs: not in the trite, wishy-washy sense of the word but as an elemental and all-consuming force.”

Speaking in a new interview with Loud & Quiet, Beth said of the band’s future: “We’re going to take a break from Savages because we haven’t taken a break between the two records at all – we took a month, I remember”

All members of the band are reportedly set to explore other opportunities away from the band. “I have a collaboration I have lined up, really cool stuff, which I can’t talk about now but some are going to be revealed in January.,” Beth continued.

“I think it’s going to be for me, collaborating with new people. I’ve kept writing a lot so I’ve got a lot of songs right now that I don’t know what I’m going to do with yet. They’re for something else, not Savages. Pursuing the collaborations where people have reached out and want to work with me, that’s what’s going to happen. I’m very excited.”

Savages played an epic finale for their latest album ‘Adore Life’ with a sold out show at London’s Brixton Academy last month – honouring Leonard Cohen and Marianne Faithfull.

Their final show for their acclaimed second album ‘Adore Life’, which we hailed as one of the 50 best albums of 2016, singer Jehnny Beth told the capacity crowd that this would be ‘the last Savages show for a while’, as she and the band tore through a fearless celebration of life, love, punk and chaos.
