The black-clad London post-punks that are whipping up a critical whirlwind have finally released details of their debut album. Silence Yourself will be released on the 6th May via Matador and their own Pop Noir label, running to eleven tracks and 38 minutes. To accompany the announcement the quartet also released a video stream of ‘She Will’ and issued a press statement that fervently asserts their intentions:

SAVAGES is not trying to give you something you didn’t have already, it is calling within yourself something you buried ages ago, it is an attempt to reveal and reconnect your PHYSICAL and EMOTIONAL self and give you the urge to experience your life differently, your girlfriends, your husbands, your jobs, your erotic life and the place music occupies in your life. Because we must teach ourselves new ways of POSITIVE MANIPULATIONS, music and words are aiming to strike like lightning, like a punch in the face, a determination to understand the WILL and DESIRES of the self. This album is to be played loud in the foreground.’
