Savages unveil intense black-and-white video for 'Husbands' - watch

Track is taken from band's Mercury Prize-nominated debut album 'Silence Yourself'

Savages have unveiled a video for their track 'Husbands'.

The intense black-and-white promo clip splices shots of the band playing live with close-ups of singer Jehnny Beth's face and archive footage showing snakes, insects and nuclear explosions. Watch it above.

'Husbands' is taken from the band's acclaimed debut album 'Silence Yourself', which came out in May of this year and will compete with albums by David Bowie, Arctic Monkeys, Jake Bugg and Disclosure, among others, for this year's Barclaycard Mercury Prize. The winner will announced in a ceremony in central London on October 30.

Meanwhile, Savages are set to embark on a UK headline tour this November (2013). The post-punk outfit will play six shows on the tour, starting at Brighton Concorde on November 5 and taking in gigs in London, Bristol, Manchester and Glasgow before finishing the run at Leeds Vox on November 11. Support for all the dates will come from Australian band A Dead Forest Index.
