Erik & the Worldly Savages BREAK FREE with “Thunder” in their “Hearts”

It seems like just a couple of months ago, The Farsighted was reviewing Erik & the Worldly Savages’s EP, Break Free!. This is because it was only a couple of months ago… and this is because Erik Mut just can’t stand making and releasing great folk-punk tracks in the vein of Greg Graffin, Chuck Ragan, and other great recent solo projects from punk rock greats. While Erik Mut may not be one of the household names that I mentioned above, his songwriting, musicianship, and punk rock ethos rival anyone’s. But, for Mut, the recipe is more than just the stripped down folk-punk of these greats, but a gypsy punk and alternative infused sound that’s something unique and fresh.

On FUTURE THUNDER VOID, the brand new EP from Erik & the Worldly Savages, we get 6 more stellar tracks of the unique blend of folk-punk, gypsy punk, and music from all over the globe. The lead single – “Thunder in Our Hearts” – is accompanied by a music video featuring the mischievous yet earnest look of wide eyed Mut as the narrator of a fun story reenacted by a cast including the rest of the band.

Grab the full EP from the Erik and the crew’s Bandcamp or check them out on Spotify. An EP filled with fantastic musicianship, great songs, and catchy tunes that’ll get stuck in your head is awaiting you.

After he stopped regularly running local concerts in Northern NJ and the greater Philly area, he knew he needed to step up his writing game if he expected to continue to get free music to listen to. He writes regularly here and at Cinapse, as well as contributing to a few other sites on occasion. He likes music, film, the Philadelphia Eagles, the 76ers, talking about Criminal Justice, reading Intelligence Report, and his family... not in that order. His beautiful wife is far more talented than he is and his kids far more adorable... and crazy.
