SAVAK return with their second album, Cut-Ups, on October 27 via Ernest Jenning Record Co. (Preorder yours.) The band, which includes members of Obits, The Make-Up, Holy Fuck and The Cops, made the album once again with Geoff Sanoff and they describe it as "the sound of four adult men in Brooklyn, New York, sharing their world as they see it." They mix punk, post-punk, '60s psych, krautrock and other influences, and seem to have fully settled into a SAVAK sound that they began to define on their great debut. The first single is the muscular "Natural Light," that pulls a little Del Shannon into punk territory. That song makes its premiere in this post and you can listen below.

You can catch SAVAK this fall, opening East Coast dates of Pinback's Autumn of the Seraphs 10th anniversary tour, including the NYC show at Irving Plaza on October 8 (tickets).

All SAVAK tour dates are listed, along with the album art (designed by Jim Braha of The Blind Shake) and tracklist, below.
