The New Savages play their own kind of blues. It’s a familiar but original sound, somewhere between Jim Morrison playing in an electrified delta blues duo, with a dash of Johnny Cash. They never spend much time in the same place, constantly playing festivals, halls and bars across the continent.
As one of the hardest working blues bands in Australia, they kicked off 2018 with a new single, “Brother, I am Your Keeper” and a 50 date national tour from Jan-June, with stops across every state. Including stops at the “Taste of the Huon” Festival in Ranelagh, Tasmania and Gold Coast’s Blues on Broadbeach.
The second half of 2018 sees them performing at festivals around the country, including Echuca Winter Blues, Marysville Blues and Jazz, Healesville Festival and many more.
“Brother, I Am Your Keeper” was recorded at the end of 2017, capping off an extremely busy three years for the band, that saw them play six national tours, and over 250 shows in support of their 3 EPs.
