Savage Sellout is a 4 Piece Indie Rock Band from Burton-Upon-Trent which began life years ago when frontman, Ben, and guitarist, George, wrote a series of parody songs making fun of Indie Rock bands of the day.
But years later as their writing style changed, Ben and George found themselves with a bunch of Indie Rock songs and the need to start a band. After finding Steve to play bass and Jack to bang the drums, Savage Sellout exploded onto the scene.
Quickly absorbing their local music scene with their infectious riffs, raw lyrics and "Party Like" gigs, Savage Sellout has now began work on recording a series of Singles to be released through 2018 with the first due to be released in June.
