Their music has been covered by Metallica in San Francisco, they have played in New York and Europe but there was just one place that heavy rockers Savage wanted to be to record their first live album...

Mansfield is welcoming back her musical sons for their first hometown show for 30 years.

The gig, at the town’s Old Library on Saturday, February 1, will be recorded for release later in the year.

Savage will play all the tracks from their 1983 debut album ‘Loose N Lethal’ as well as recording newer material.

In addition to preparing for the live recording, the guys are writing a new album, which they intend to record after a short European tour in April. Both recordings will be released simultaneously later in the year under the title ‘Live n Lethal’.

Chris Bradley, singer and bass player, said of the Mansfield gig: “This will be a special night for us, even some of our family and friends have yet to see the band live.

“It’s the first time we’ve played the first album from start to finish in the UK.”

Two of Savage ‘s songs, Let It Loose and Dirty Money, found their way onto a compilation album which was bought by Metallica’s drummer Lars Ulrich in London. Metallica played both songs at their early gigs.

Cutting their musical teeth, Savage took their sound around Derbyshire, playing in Alfreton, Somercotes and Darley Dale.

Tickets for Saturday’s gig are available from the website: www.savageband.com and their Facebook page, www.facebook.com/savageuk.

Subject to availability, tickets will also be on sale on the night.
