Savages star Jehnny Beth has said recording the band's debut album was an "intense" experience.
The post-punk four-piece, who recently performed at the Coachella Festival in California, are releasing their debut album after performing their first gig together just last year.
Jehnny said of making the album: "It was three weeks in the studio with only one day off, so it was quite intense... It was very focused too, and for that time, the outside world was non-existent.
The singer added: "It's very absorbing, but you can only do that when you don't have anything or anyone else to occupy you. It was a luxury to be able to do it, but it's a luxury we have... We put in as much effort as we do when we play live."
:: Savages begin a UK tour on May 1 and release their debut album Silence Yourself on May 6.
