Savage Messiah Announce New UK Dates

11th November at The Garage, London
 22nd November at The Institute, Birmingham

London based Metal-Head's Savage Messiah have announced two new UK dates with Glasswerk in November. After releasing their latest album "The Fateful Dark" in April, the band are now setting sights on touring the UK again. 

In the 6 years since forming, the band has achieved respectable successes, having had two worldwide official releases and one independent ep, in that time working with Grammy nominated producer Chris Tsangarides and having sold in excess of 10,000 records to date. The band has also picked up notable touring credentials having supported Overkill on a full European tour in 2010, supporting Evile in the UK and picking up shows with Death Angel, Queensryche, Skeletonwitch, Sylosis and have appeared at UK festivals including Bloodstock Open Air, Hammerfest, Devilstone Open Air, Hellfire Festival while playing many headlining shows in the UK and Europe. 

The band consists of Dave Silver on lead guitar and vocals, Joff Bailey on lead guitar, Stefano Selvatico on bass and Andrea Gorio on drums. The first recorded output from Savage Messiah was the independently produced and financed ep “Spitting Venom” in 2007. The e.p achieved moderate acclaim with Eduardo Rivadavia of, summarizing, “it shouldn't be long before Savage Messiah are signed to a more supportive label infrastructure“ 

Ultimately “Spitting Venom” scored the band a recording contract with independent metal specialists Candlelight Records, who released the bands first full length album “Insurrection Rising” in 2009. Produced by Chris Tsangarides and mixed and engineered by Scott Atkins, “Insurrection Rising” is a massive leap in terms of production and song writing and earned the band high praise from all corners of the metal world. 

After touring had ceased in support of “Insurrection Rising” the band opted to move to Earache Records for the release of the 2012 album “Plague of Conscience”. Once again working with Scott Atkins, “Plague of Conscience” is a more polished affair with once again noticeable improvements being made in the song writing and performance departments. Metal Hammer in the UK awarded the album 8/10 and Burrrn Magazine in Japan gave the band an unprecedented 95/100 score. The band and label initially opted to give the album away as a free download, achieving over 42,000 downloads in the first week!
