London-based post-punk revival rock band Savages will be performing at The Roxy Theatre on August 26 as part of the FYF Sideshows going on during the month of August, leading to the FYF FEST main event. The band formed in 2011, and its debut album, Silence Yourself, reached number 19 in the UK Albums Chart in May 2013.
They had their first gig in January 2012 supporting rock band British Sea Power. The group’s first released tracks, a double A-side in June 2012, were “Flying to Berlin” and “Husbands” on the Pop Noire label. In October, their concert at the CMJ Music Marathon in New York received good reviews and o n 9 December 2012, the BBC announced that the band had been nominated for the Sound of 2013 poll.
Savages played in the second of the Coachella Festival in 2013 and its song “Husbands” was featured during the end credits of the 2015 science fiction film “Ex Machina.” The band is on the rise, so be sure to catch them when they perform at The Roxy Theatre this month.
