Les Savy Fav are back with their first new music in 14 years. The band’s new song is called ‘Legendary Tippers’, and it comes with an accompanying music video directed by Matthew Conboy. Check it out below.
“The guitars have this offhanded virtuoso thing going,” singer Tim Harrington said in a statement. “Seth had stacked all of these semi-improvised scratch tracks into a demo. When I got them, I was immediately drawn to the manic pile-up of using them all, all at once, with zero edits. It’s like if the solo from ‘Taxman’ wolfed down a bottle of Adderall.”
Les Savy Fav’s last album was 2010’s Root for Ruin. “When we finished our last record, there was a sense that if we were going to do more, we wanted to do something more ambitious,” Harrington said. “I think it took us a while to even get in a space where that was possible.”
“The band was never a job, so we can’t get fired and don’t have to quit,” he added. “We had the time to figure out how to bring the people we’ve become and the people we are as artists together authentically. There’s a chaotic, untethered ecstasy at the center of the band’s universe. Squaring that with the desire to create stability and the need to endure some grind isn’t easy.”
Les Savy Fav teased their comeback last year with a series of live shows. They have a run of dates in the UK and Ireland scheduled for February and May and were recently announced for Barcelona’s Primavera Sound.
