Savages have announced they will play six headline UK gigs in February 2016 as part of a world tour in support of their upcoming second album Adore Life.
The UK dates are in addition to their previously announced gigs at The Day Of The Dead festival next month and at London’s 100 Club on 26 January.
The world tour begins in the UK on 18 February with a gig at Bexhill’s De La Warr Pavilion, and will see Savages visit Cambridge, Glasgow, Manchester and Leeds before they head off to mainland Europe.
They will return to the UK on 17 March for what is likely to be a huge show at London’s Roundhouse, before they jet off to the US and Canada to complete the tour.

Here’s how Savages describe what the new album is about:
It’s about change and the power to change. It’s about metamorphosis and evolution. It’s about sticking to your guns and toughing it out. It’s about now, not tomorrow. It’s about recognising your potential. It’s about self-doubt and inaction. It’s about you. It’s about me. It’s about you and me and the others. It’s about the choices we make. It’s about finding the poetry and avoiding the cliché. It’s about being the solution, not the problem. It’s about showing weakness to be strong. It’s about digging through your dirt to look for diamonds. It’s about claiming your right to think unacceptable thoughts. It’s about boredom and the things we do to drive it away. It’s about being on your own so you can be with people. It’s about knowing what it means to be human and what it might mean one day. It’s about the parts and the sum of the parts. It’s about the music and the message: together, one and the same. It’s about bass, guitars, drums, and vocals. It’s about opening-out and never, ever dying. But most of all it’s about love, every kind of love. Love is the answer.
