SAVAK announce new LP ‘Beg Your Pardon’ (listen to “Dead Dick”)
Brooklyn’s SAVAK will release their third album, Beg Your Pardon, on November 9. The band, which features members of Obits, The Cops, and Holy Fuck, recorded the album themselves at their practice space before giving the songs to Mikey Young (Royal Headache, Kelley Stoltz), Geoff Sanoff (Nada Surf, Luna), Ed Ackerson (The Jayhawks, John Wesley Harding) and Matthew Barnhart (Superchunk, METZ) to mix. Beg Your Pardon has some of SAVAK’s most immediate songs to date, including slash-n-burn album opener “Dead Dick” which premieres in this post. Listen below.
SAVAK have a few upcoming shows including two Brooklyn: The Bell House on September 8 with Hot Snakes and Gotobeds, and Union Pool on October 9 with Australia’s The Scientists and Des Demonas.
