Stream Two Dramatic, New Tracks From Denton's Savage and the Big Beat.

Though they've been playing shows in Denton for the past couple of years, Savage and the Big Beat have yet to release a proper full-length album.

Well, actually, that's not entirely true. Last year, Max Brown and Ryan Cortez released an 18-track soundtrack to a parody musical based on Michael Crichton's Jurassic Park. Not counting that, though, the twosome has only released a handful of somewhat lo-fi EPs.

And although their upcoming Love and Hunting release still won't see them exploring full-length territory just yet, it nonetheless marks a big leap forward for the former drums- and piano-based duo. Aside from being the most polished tracks they've put out to date, the addition of guitarist Kyle Irion has beefed up the already frenzied clanking of the band's theatrical-rooted piano-heavy sound. In a good way, too: The fact that Brown's vocals so closely resemble Freddie Mercury's when paired with the band's musical theater leanings will surely draw some obvious comparisons upon the disc's release.

The first chance those fans will have to purchase the album will be on September 29 at Andy's when the band plays with Team Tomb and Vagabond. (The former of those outfits, we might add, includes Roy Robertson, who produced the new EP.)

Until then you can sample a pair of tunes here, which the band has kindly passed along to Central Track prior to the album's release.
