    The Modern Savage (formerly known as The Young Guns) announced themselves to the local music scene with a bang, shocking a largely punk rock crowd in Anchorage’s most infamous bar with a sound that was at once exhilarating and emotional. Since that triumphant debut, the band has continued to defy expectations by being one of Alaska’s hardest working bands. Playing shows constantly, recording their first album [EP] and booking the opening slot for several national acts all while holding down day jobs and families, this is only the beginning.

    Alternating between pulse pounding dance jams and vocals driven indie rock, The Modern Savage have something to offer almost any audience. Each musician brings something to the table, combining an undeniable energy and passion for exceptional rock music with the deft experience hard won from years of work on stage and in studios. They’ve gained a solid and enthusiastic audience in their home state and look forward to sharing their irrepressible love of music with the world at large.
