Brooklyn's art-punks, Les Savy Fav are a long standing pillar of independent music and we're so excited to be bringing them back out to Australia for the third time! They'e been on the circuit for well over a decade and have over the years recorded with other indie rock institutions like Fiery Furnaces, Broken Social Scene, Enon and Modest Mouse. Their latest release, Root for Ruin sees the band leave their swinger ways behind, opting to return to the sanctuary of tight musical marriage between frontman Tim Harrington, bassist Syd Butler, drummer Harrison Haynes, and guitarists Seth Jabour and Andrew Reuland.
Les Savy Fav head to Australia for the third time, packing a set full of new, "Pixies-like crowd-pleasers [Guardian]". Having been an integral part of Popfrenzy since their first visit in 2004, the band promises to deliver something very special for all their Australian fans this summer. Get ready!!
Don't forget you can purchase their singles compilation Inches along with their two previous Australian Tour double A-side singles from our online store!
