The New Savages EP release and winter tour....original and modern style blues

Melbourne based The New Savages are just about to release their third EP and are also doing a huge 39 date national tour in support of it.

They play an original and modern kind of blues very steeped in the trance-like boogie drone of the Mississippi Hill Country tradition. Guitarist Milan's style is heavily influenced by the original 1930's blues men like Son House and Blind Willie Johnson and Nathan is a seasoned Jazz drummer. Milan's vocals are often compared to Jim Morrison and sometimes Nick Cave or Johnny Cash.

The first single from the EP is "I've Lost My Little Girl" now viewing on YouTube:

"These guys … they get it. Check ’em out as soon as you are able" – Matt Frederick, PBS 106.7 The Juke Joint

“The New Savages have a love for blues with a thousand-yard stare. They specialise in unearthing lost riffs and giving them a second life in new songs.” – B Mag
