SAVAK
SAVAK
Beg Your Pardon is the third album in as many years from Brooklyn-based rock’n’roll band SAVAK, formed in 2015 by members of The Obits, Holy Fuck, The Cops and Nation of Ulysses.


The new album follows a compelling progression from their past releases—equally the most punk rock and sublime record in their repertoire. Beg Your Pardon features everything from noisy careeners and ‘80s hardcore nods to slightly glammy stompers and straight-up, New Zealand-inspired, guitar-pop songs (and that’s just in the first 10 minutes of side one).


The band recorded and produced Beg Your Pardon themselves in their Gowanus practice space and then handed off the songs to Mikey Young (Royal Headache, Kelley Stoltz), Geoff Sanoff (Nada Surf, Luna), Ed Ackerman (The Jayhawks, John Wesley Harding) and Matthew Barnhart (Superchunk, METZ) to mix.


Beg Your Pardon will be available worldwide on November 9th, 2018 via Ernest Jenning Record Co. with exclusive vinyl releases by Taken By Surprise Records (Germany), Bang! Records (France), Geenger Records (Croatia), Orangerie (Czech Republic) and Hello Thor Records (UK).
Benjy Ferree
Benjy Ferree
"Benjy has written a collection of recollections of pain and hurt and all the smells of the sweaty canvas that are usually beneath the boxers feet, but unfortunately too often too close. This record takes us by the scruff and lifts us up and slaps us and cuts our eyelids open and splashes water on our face and says, to us, to himself, that we must get back up, get back out there and fight ... Benjy sings from a desperate place, his voice crying above the din, but clearly on the other side of something. He sees glory. He sings of it."
-Brendan Canty (filmmaker/composer, Fugazi, Rites of Spring, Super Silver Haze).


"It's a mysterious, intoxicating song, and Ferree's hazy lyrics ("I am all for equal rights / I'll take the punches for you / Even though you start the fight / Before I eat the last bite") barely hint at the song's deeper meanings. In an email, Ferree is even more oblique about what it's about: "I couldn't possibly attempt an explanation of the song, but it's from the heart," he writes." - Washington City Paper (5/26/16) on "Brave Woman"
