"America's best-kept secret. No superpower likes to concede the presence of an autonomous state within its borders"
-The Wire, 1988

"Savage Republic are the best group you never stood still for"
-NME, 03/1986

Rising from the Los Angeles underground of the 1980s, Savage Republic forged an astonishing reputation by virtue of five mesmerizing studio albums and a string of legendary live performances. Forever shifting, their brand of ritualistically tribal exhibitions blurred the boundaries of postpunk, industrial and soundtrack music, incorporating minimalist bass rumbles, ferocious rhythms, exotic metal percussion, primal chants, middle eastern melodies and even shards of surf guitar. Add to this iconic letterpress graphics by founder member Bruce Licher, and Savage Republic stack up as one of the most exciting and potent experimental groups to emerge at any time or place during the last three decades.

The new full length album 'Aegean' was released in 2014, with a new vinyl release scheduled for late 2015 .

'Aegean' CD available now from Mobilization Recordings.

Distributors: Cobraside, Carrottop, Revolver,,

The limited edition 'Aegean 2xLP', 'God & Guns' 7", 'Varvakios' vinyl LP, and the Savage Republic back catalog are available from
