Savage After Midnight Prep Release of Debut EP, "11:59", Set to Tour with Pop Evil

Memphis, Tennessee quintet Savage After Midnight are gearing up for the release of their debut EP, "11:59"


Memphis, Tennessee quintet Savage After Midnight are gearing up for the release of their debut EP, 11:59 (RED Music/The Century Family) on March 8th, 2019 with an east coast run of tour dates with Pop Evil.



Since the band members formed in 2009, Savage After Midnight have been sidetracked by an obligatory name change, a studio fire, scrapped recordings from different producers, a crippling lawsuit they had nothing to do with and an 11th hour record label change. We’ve been put through the wringer, man,” says vocalist Shi. “We’ve totally been fed through it. If it’s true that what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger, then we must be the strongest band in the world.”

The years of trial and error, and even more years of being uprooted and returning to square one made Savage After Midnight a more professional band, improving their chemistry and allowing them to fine tune their presentation both live and in the studio. The band connected with producer John Falls (Egypt Central) and recorded what would become the "11:59" EP. The band's "work-hard-by-day, rock-harder-by-night" ethos is poured into a collection of songs that are an energized, emotional introduction to musicians that desperately want to make a mark, but only on their own terms. S.A.M. music is aggressive, but still has pop sensibilities. The tracks are colored by galvanic hard rock passages, a contrast of screamed melodies and soaring hooks, and it’s augmented by electronic segments that give the band a modern edge.

“10 Feet Tall,” the first single and video release from the EP, is already making inroads at SiriusXm Octane and Music Choice. It's anthemic and energizing, building from a melodic verse, through a propulsive bridge and into an unforgettable chorus. “Unleash,” the opening cut on the EP, is a message of empowerment in the face of adversity, driven forward by steady backbeats, chugging guitars and electronic effects. “Heartless Machine” is an intense song about soldiers who are sent to war and desensitized, trained so that they will obey commands that civilians never have to contemplate.

Savage After Midnight has toured with Shinedown, Sick Puppies, and Story of the Year, among others. More tour dates are being confirmed, and the band also has additional songs recorded for another EP to be released in late 2019 or early 2020.
