Since the first spark of creativity that became Perth’s beloved heavy melodic act ‘Saviour’, both the external world, and the internal mechanics of the band have changed dramatically; however the one thing that will forever remain, is their burning desire to create something truly unique within the alternative music scene. Their etherial collision of aggressive post-hardcore with atmospheric electronic sounds and vocals has lead to the six-piece standing out from the crowd for over a decade now.

After a few years of dormancy, the band returned to stages in late 2017 with a fire burning stronger than ever. 2020 saw the release of their critically acclaimed album A Lunar Rose and the band had the world ahead of them before things came to a grinding halt. Not to be deterred, the band spent that time honing their craft, and as the world returns to some sense of normality, so too have Saviour, and the future has never shined so bright.

A Lunar Rose

28th February 2020

Perth heavy act Saviour are back bolder than ever with the impending release of their fourth studio album ‘A Lunar Rose’. The latest release from the Perth group edges towards heavier territory, exploring elements of living with inner demons, reminiscent memories and pathways to resolution. A Lunar Rose is a fitting follow up to previous releases ‘Once We Were Lions’ (2011), ‘First Light To My Deathbed’ (2013) and ‘Let Me Leave’ (2017) and further demonstrates the groups’ ability to create soundscapes that mirror the world around them. 

“A Lunar Rose for me is a bleak journey from where the brighter side of life meets the aftermath. I think it captures that reminiscent voice that most people have inside them and gives it real life audio. Listening back to the record, it’s still kind of hard to listen to without feeling a bit torn by the end. It’s an emotional journey where the dark out shadows the light. This album might just be the heaviest Saviour album to date. If it’s not the heaviest, it’s certainly the most aggressive. A Lunar Rose holds real meaning to all of us and it’s one that we are going to be proud of no matter what happens moving forward” 
- Bryant Best

This work is the first major release from the current lineup Bryant Best (vocals), Shontay Snow (keyboard/vocals), Daniel Rees (guitar), Michael Matta (drums) and Chris Pearce (bass). The band have maintained their haunting melodic qualities whilst returning to an emotionally powerful heavy edge, a balance that was vitally important in telling the stories of A Lunar Rose. 

“The Saviour line up right now is very cohesive. We were all close friends before the band brought us together, so it’s made the working environment for us an enjoyable place to be. We had a lot of trouble over the past couple years getting this album together, the majority of which was out of our control. However, finding the sound direction of A Lunar Rose was something that came easy for us. The elements we all wanted from this record was to keep it heavy, keep it melodic, and keep it heartfelt. At its core, I think A Lunar Rose is a byproduct of that. For us, it feels natural and nothing about it feels forced.”
- Bryant Best

Saviour will be embarking on an Australian tour in support of the new release with dates for the run soon to be announced. A Lunar Rose is set to be released on all major streaming services including Spotify and Apple Music as well as being  complemented by album CD’s and a rare run of vinyl copies available online at
