For the best part of a year now, I’ve been banging on about THE SAVAGE NOMADS, both through the medium of this blog and also via ARTROCKER MAGAZINE when they not only featured in the New Blood section but won that particular month’s competition for the most downloads of all the bands highlighted.
So I’m really happy to announce that the lads have a new EP due for release shortly. ‘Tension In The Middle’ will be released through Alaska Records on 27th May, and a review will be carried here on LOUD HORIZON within the next few days.
And it’s not just LOUD HORIZON who are excited about THE SAVAGE NOMADS. Mick Jones and Paul Simonon of The Clash, Matt Johnson (The The) and Robyn Hitchcock have all vocally offered their support and the band have garnered fiercely supportive reviews in Music Week, The Independent and The Mirror as well as a rapidly-building online buzz which is always increasing.
The aforementioned Mick Jones even had the band support him during his Justice Tonight tour amid a line up including leading members of Primal Scream and The Manic Street Preachers. Also, when The Jim Jones Revue saw The Savage Nomads live they immediately invited them to be a support act on their upcoming tour. They will be joining them at their Gloucester date this Friday (April 6th). On top of their residency at Notting Hill Arts Club The Savage Nomads have been booked for Yard Life festival among Pete Doherty and The Filthy Dukes and will be playing the main stage at Beach Break festival on the same bill as Dizzee Rascal.
