Savage After Midnight “Unleash” new single; on tour with New Years Day, Adelitas Way and Shinedown

Savage After Midnight are back out on tour in June & July with New Years Day, in support of their recently released debut EP, “11:59” (RED Music/The Century Family).  The song is the follow up to their Top 35 Active Rock hit “10 Feet Tall“.


Dogged perseverance and unyielding determination are qualities shared by countless bands struggling to break out from their hometown club scene and onto the arena stage.  Memphis, Tennessee quintet Savage After Midnight have exhibited far more patience and dedication than most. They have released their debut EP, “11:59” (RED Music/The Century Family) after wrapping up a run of tour dates with Memphis May Fire.

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, Pop Evil, and Story of the Year, among others.  The band will be touring thorughout 2019, and additional songs have been recorded for another EP to be released late this year or early 2020.

Living up to the band’s name, leader Shi admits: “We all like to get wild.  There’s something savage about us when it comes to throwing down and partying – it’s just who we are. We work really hard, but at the end of the day we’re down for a good time. We’ll put on whatever work hat we have to, but once it strikes midnight it’s our time – and it’s time to tear it up!” 2019 will be the year that Savage After Midnight tears through the rock world and at long last makes it mark.
