“The Fine Art of Watching Hard Fucking Work Pay Off!” That’s Memphis’ new rising sons,
Savage After
Midnight, in a nutshell. “Savage has a lot of different meanings and connotations,
but for me, it’s about not really giving a fuck what people think,” says S.A.M. front man Shi
Eubank. “That applies to everything from music to the way we live. And, we’re
creatures of the
night. The later it gets
, the wilder
we get.”
That is
precisely what comes across on Savage After Midnight’s Red Music debut EP,
11:59
(one minute before midnight
geddit!). From the infectious, electro
-
tinged onrush of opening
track, “Un
leash”, S.A.M.’s music crackles with just that sort of intense, animalistic
energy.
Songs like “10 Foot Tall” and “King” have the same unforgettable verve as the band’s live show
or a conversation with its front man and ringleader. “Being a smaller guy and
growing up,
basically in ‘the hood’, you had to fight for everything,” Shi states. “You learn to stand up for
yourself.” No surprise, that in addition winning over crowds opening for the likes of Shinedown
,
Sick Puppies or Story of the Year, Eubanks has a
lso scored as a local businessman, owning one
of the most successful businesses in the Nashville area.
Coming together in 2014 under the name Empire City, S.A.M. went through the trials and
tribulations of countless bands, swapping out members and throwing
away songs before bringing
Savage After Midnight into sharp focus. “We realized at a certain point that what wasn’t
connecting was an honesty in our songs,” says Shi. “So we literally humbled ourselves and went
in and wrote and wrote and wrote and became
the band we are now. We learned to write for
nobody else but ourselves.” While their songs often match the sonic ballistics of inspirations like
Linkin Park and Papa Roach, Savage After Midnight have distinguished themselves with a
musical riot of their ow
n.
Ask anyone who saw the band step in front of cold audiences in early 2018 opening for
Shinedown. “That reception was nothing short of amazing
it was the first time that anyone had
ever heard our songs,” says Shi. “They gave us the sort of honesty we g
ave to them. An
incredibly positive kind of brutal honesty!” What’s the next step for the five
-
man freight train
called Savage After Midnight? “We’re already several songs deep into our next release,” says
Shi. “I don’t know where it’s going, but I can’t s
ee this stopping any time soon.”
