Saakred Album Release

  • Saakred

San Antonio experimental electronic artist and visual artist Saakred has recently returned home from traveling around Europe. The time abroad has done the ever-changing, ever-growing Saakred well, in terms of both inspiration and ambition. And, now they’re set to release their fifth studio album, 2025. In fact, this week and next, the artist will be quite busy, performing at Austin Design Week, Luminaria, and, of course, the album release show at Hi-Tones. Saakred’s is a sound and a creativity that never sits still. Their last album was a furious, lo-fi punk affair, and the one before that, 2013’s excellent FLI HY, was a sort of avant-garde electronic affair, full of self-affirmation and the glorious rattle of big bass. By all indications, this new album, influenced by club experiences across Europe, will fall more in the category of electro Saakred. But, if following them over all these years has proven anything, it’s that Saakred is not easy to predict and they’re impossible to pigeonhole. $7, 10pm, Hi-Tones, 621 E Dewey, (210) 573-6220, facebook.com/saakred. — JC
