Savoy Motel share new album details

Savoy Motel share new album details, their self-titled release comes out October 21st on Whats Your Rupture

Savoy Motel, can be described as many things, an intensely orchestrated and unique hybrid of glam rock, boogie, soul, power-pop, garage, punk, dance music and showmanship all rolled into one. Their debut full-length gets released on What’s Your Rupture? Records October 21st. Today, they share their brand new video for”Souvenir Shop Rock”.

Singer/guitarist Jeffrey Novak explains “SSR” starts the album off with an ode to an old war criminal with an extended trail of atrocities behind him. This unnamed protagonist is living a new life in a less than desirable “second” existence, stuck working at a cheesy gift shop, and hoping to never be found. The video, directed by Dylan Carver, shows a glimpse inside this war criminal’s mind trying to escape his crappy postwar occupation, with Savoy Motel along as musical narrators, led behind a line of troops with fists full of gold teeth for souvenirs, and a gang of whip dancers as the only assessors in this warped imaginary world”

“We use rock and roll as a vehicle to reach and promote the feeling of TOTAL FREEDOM,” claims Watson. “Savoy Motel is defined more by a feeling than a sound. I hear this feeling in other acts too … Miles Davis, Little Richard, the Osborne Brothers, Faust, the Stones, all the best ones. And the diversity of records I knew TOTAL FREEDOM from was also encouraging to me early on in regards to the band, because it made me realize what potential and widespread appeal our music could have.”

The four piece hit the road this fall with The Dandy Warhols in support of Savoy Motel – full list of dates below.
