California metal band SAVIOURS was honored with a "Goldie Award" by the San Francisco Bay Guardian as part of the alt-weekly's 21st annual "Guardian Outstanding Local Discovery" awards. The Guardian gives the "Goldie Award" annually "to honor outstanding talent in the performing and visual arts saluting promising artists early in their careers as well as established artists deserving special recognition." SAVIOURS was presented with the award last evening at a private ceremony in San Francisco. A special SFBG spotlight on the band can be viewed at this location.

SAVIOURS just released its long-awaited new album, "Accelerated Living", which has met to shining fan and critical acclaim. Recorded at San Francisco's Lucky Cat Recording Studios with producer Phil Manley (of TRANS AM / THE FUCKING CHAMPS), the record is a veritable heavy metal riff-fest, blending mind-bending guitar work and locomotive rhythms with a wild-ride heaviness that is both incredibly infectious and unconditionally unique.

Fast becoming known as one of the best contemporary metal bands on the planet today, SAVIOURS deliver sensational heavy music with a latent punk energy that merges scorched-earth aggression and multidirectional riff odysseys with a mean d-beat pummel and MOTÖRHEAD-like locomotive roar. The red-hot band has been on a fast rise since its formation in 2002 and has electrified stages the world over, touring alongside peers such as HIGH ON FIRE, THE SWORD and MASTODON.
