(Fifth member Mag Delana, a Yaphet Kotto vet, left the band after Crucifire was recorded.) "I think the songs are getting more intricate."
"They'll also stay kinda raw, though," Batiste added. "Consciously, we try to stay simple."
Though they joke that they only do "extreme tours," owing to past jaunts that saw them navigating icy highways in the Midwest and sweltering in East Coast summer heat, the Saviours are eager to hit the road next year. This year they traveled across America playing songs from Crucifire and their 2005 EP, Warship (Level Plane), recorded soon after the band formed, and they've picked up fans everywhere.
In New Orleans, Barber recalled, "We were partying all night after the show. I'm out front eating some food, and I hear our band blasting out of some car. And it's the sheriff — literally the sheriff of New Orleans. He's all, 'Fuckin' Saviours! Aaaah!' Just screaming at me. He was blasting our CD from the cop car. It was fucking awesome."<\!s>
