Oakland, CA outfit SAVIOURS has inked a deal with New York City's Kemado Records. The self-described "piss-angry metal band," known for its ferocious live performances and original stamp on the classic power and thrash metal of decades past, will enter Los Angeles' A&M/Henson Studios in late August with producer Joe Barresi (MELVINS, KYUSS, TOOL) to record its sophomore album.

Merging howling lyrical venom with an endless arsenal of corrosive guitar orchestrations, harmonized leads and runaway locomotive rhythms, SAVIOURS have been rapidly garnering international attention as one of the best heavy bands active today. Fresh off a red-hot tour of the United Kingdom as hand-picked direct support to progressive metal giants MASTODON, SAVIOURS have launched a fourteen city road jaunt that will see the band's "not-to-be-missed" live sets including many of the new songs that will comprise the new full-length. The as-yet-untitled album is expected to see an early 2008 release.

On the topic of the forthcoming album and the band's new label home, SAVIOURS drummer Scott Batiste comments, "We signed to Kemado because they understand what we're trying to do more than any other label. We each share a vision of how a SAVIOURS record should be released. And it helps that Keith and company know how to party."

SAVIOURS' standout cut "Circle of Servants Bodies" represented the ass-kicking opening salvo for Kemado's compilation of rare and unreleased heaviness, 2006's much-publicized "Invaders". The release, called "a nearly flawless and numbingly coherent compilation of contemporary heavy rock" features a host of today's best hard rock and metal acts that, in addition to SAVIOURS, also includes THE SWORD, BIG BUSINESS, HIGH ON FIRE, WOLFMOTHER and TORCHE.

"Circle of Servants Bodies" can be heard at this location.
