OW OW OW!
Barrence and the Savages are bringing their atomic-powered sock it to me soul to the British airwaves.

"I dare say mumsy, that Barrance chap is a cracking good singer! Now, it's off to the chamber. I'm knackered." At least, that's how we imagine it'll be in households (or "flats") all over the UK.

“So many musicians degrade over time — they get worse or do more of the same. Whereas I didn’t have a chance to. It’s like I was frozen in ice."
Yep. Barrence is like a soul screamin', garage-rockin' Captain America. And we're about to break him out of the ice on Tuesday with the release of the band's Bloodshot debut 'Dig Thy Savage Soul!'
"We're pretty much still the same band that rips the brain cells and throats of human beings every time we play." - Barrence himself
Barrence Whitfield & the Savages' Bloodshot debut Dig Thy Savage Soul is streaming in its entirety at NPR's WNYC! The album is out next Tuesday (8/13) but you can get a sneak peak into the total madness that soul screamer Barrence and his garage army have crafted.
