Hopped up on a steady diet of everything, SAVAK formed in 2015 by members of Obits, Holy Fuck, and The Cops.
Rotting Teeth in the Horse’s Mouth, the group’s fourth full-length LP in five years, comes out April 10th on Ernest Jenning Record Co.
Lyrically, they’re navigating the complexities of everyday life and how to grow and shape a better future in the face of adversity. Musically, they’re a cohesive, balanced package of punk in all its amalgamations, the trio acting as a unit that play off of each other and with each other, always asking what the best next move might be.
There’s no better time than now to welcome the arrival of an album that addresses a lot of the anxieties which have been bubbling in our collective conscience.
For fans of : Minutemen, Wire, Mission Of Burma, The Sound, The dB’s, The Cleaners From Venus
“A potent and pointed agitpop racket which manages to balance the dark
and moody with the catchy as fuck.” —Noisey
“Superior twin-guitar slash action from members of Obits, Make-Up,
Holy Fuck et al. Adding Saints-worthy brass on standout Early Western
Traders boosts the prevailing Wipers-do-Joe Jackson aura. Four stars!”
“Dread-fueled, post-punk angst tempered with catchy hooks.” —Magnet
“Committed to making a righteous punk noise… matching elements of UK
post-punk… the band also nod towards the 80s US underground.” —Clash
“Queasy, claustrophobic noise-rock with endlessly astute observations
on the modern world.” —Louder
“A smeared Venn diagram of garage rock, DC hardcore and the more
chaotic side of jazz with a twist of psychedelia.” —Northern
