The Safes from Chicago, USA – Japan Tour 2018 – Fukuoka

START: Feb 26, 2018 END: Feb 26, 2018

The Safes possess that unique chemistry that only exists when a talented group of siblings form a band (ala The Kinks, The Breeders, The Stooges, Redd Kross, JAMC, Right Said Fred). Call ‘em “garage-kissed power pop” (San Francisco Chronicle), “Atomic pop” (Rolling Stone), or simply “wild and crazy” (Chicago Tribune), The Safes have collected plenty of accolades for however you’d like to sum up their expert-level snappy songwriting and sharp showmanship. Now, with the band’s latest album Tasty Waves, the brothers O’Malley (Frankie and Patrick) with drummer Dex Fontaine and bassist Curt Schmelz are bringing the music of The Safes to both their loyal fans and a whole new set of ears. When it came to getting this sweet sound down in the studio, the boys teamed up again with seasoned record producer Brian Deck (Modest Mouse, The Shins). The band’s “smart, melodic music” (NPR) is rooted in ‘60s-70s inspirations such as The Who, Rockpile, Big Star, Elvis Costello – artists who knew how to deliver big on record and on stage. You can catch The Safes on the last night of their Japan Tour in Fukuoka together with music groups The Routes and Lovebites on Monday, February 26!
