Savage Beliefs

Savage Beliefs was Chicago-based punk rock band that existed from 1982 until 1984. They issued one 7" EP and appeared on one local compilation during that time. The band also filmed a documentary and recorded a soundtrack for the film but both went unreleased until 2016. Guitarist Brian Gay was an original member of long-running Washington DC hardcore band Government Issue prior to moving to Chicago and continued to play in several bands around Chicago after the Savage Belief's demise. At their last show, Steve Albini allegedly told members of the band "When I heard you were breaking up, I cried". Bassist Dave Riley went on to join Big Black after Savage Beliefs split. Drummer/vocalist Eric Cassell passed away in 2003.
