Savages Premiere Music Video for "Husbands"

British post-punk band Savages have premiered a new music video for “Husbands," and you can check it out below.

The song is from the band's critically acclaimed — and Mercury prize-nominated — debut album, Silence Yourself, which was released in May via Matador Records.

The video was directed by John Minton.

Savages are in the middle of a North American tour in support of the new album. This leg of the tour will culminate with a headlining show at Terminal 5 during CMJ 2013 in New York City, only a year after their U.S. debut at Mercury Lounge during CMJ 2012.

If you're not familiar with Savages, "Husbands" — which has a strong Sonic Youth vibe (another Matador band) — makes for a fine, hard-rocking introduction. For more about the women of Savages, visit their Facebook page.
