Saviours to Release New Album on Listenable Records


Longtime residents of Kemado Records‘ lineup, Oakland heavy thrashers Saviours have signed to Listenable Records for the release their next album, to be recorded this Spring with none other than Billy “I have the original mixes of Dopesmoker under my desk” Anderson following a quick West Coast tour in March. Saviours mark a decade since the release of their Warship debut EP in 2015, and they’ve been slugging it out the hard way most of that time, heavy touring and a string of four-to-date full-lengths that have kept them in public consciousness as they’ve heralded a new breed of West Coast heavy rock.

It’s been four years since Death’s Procession, their last LP, and I don’t think I’m telling you anything you don’t know when I say the climate for heavy bands has changed in that time and is continuing to change, so I’ll be interested to see what kind of response Saviours gets, and if the band is able to transition to maturity while keeping the brashness that’s served for the last 10 years as the core of their sound.

While I stroke my beard and consider the possibilities fully aware of my own ridiculousness, feel free to dig into this off the PR wire:

SAVIOURS ink deal with Listenable Records!

California’s SAVIOURS continue to forge ahead with towering riffs, colossal rhythm, monumental guitar harmonies and an obsession with the end of times, the occult, psychedelics and arcane. Still building upon the foundations laid by Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Thin Lizzy and Motörhead, SAVIOURS enter their second decade in a new partnership with French label LISTENABLE RECORDS, preparing a new album for a Fall 2015 release.

The band generously comments: “We’re very happy to finally announce our deal with Listenable. They’re true supporters of what we do and have been a pleasure to work with thus far. Since last June we’ve been beating the new songs into submission and now its really starting to take shape and sound killer. There are some doomy crushers and faster ragers in the mix so its sounding like a natural and logical continuation of where we left off with Death’s Procession. In March we’ll play some West Coast shows then begin recording at Type Foundry in Portland with the inimitable Billy Anderson. Can’t wait to get this new record out, its been too fucking long!”

SAVIOURS new album will be recorded this spring for a later 2015 release.

The band will also be in for a short West Coast tour this March.
