Les Savy Fav are back with the new track “Legendary Tippers” | Check out the video and see their upcoming tour dates!

And they are back! After 14 years each doing their thing, here they are to bring us a playful punk-rock track.

Les Savy Fav are finally back with their first new music in 14 years, a party bop called “Legendary Tippers,” which arrives alongside a delightfully meta music video.

It’s brimming with Laissez-faire swagger. The lyrics landing between uppercrust and dumb drunk. The music follows suit – singer Tim Harrington says, “The guitars have this offhanded virtuoso thing going. Seth had stacked all of these semi-improvised scratch tracks into a demo. When I got them, I was immediately drawn to the manic pile-up of using them all, all at once, with zero edits. It’s like if the solo from ‘Taxman’ wolfed down a bottle of Adderall.” 

It’s been a long while since LSF has released anything, and this might seem an odd track to come back with, but it does a kind of amazing job capturing the unhinged, delighted energy of their live shows – a fire that’s always been hard to bottle on recordings.

Last year, Les Savy Fav teased their comeback with a series of one-off shows, including a string of European festival appearances and an intimate gig at the newly opened Knitting Factory NYC alongside Marnie Stern, another enigmatic artist who had been away from the live stage for some time.

2024 will sees the band returning to the live stage and spreading their wings further. As well as UK and Irish dates, the band have recently been announced for Primavera in May.
