Finnish Rockers GENTLE SAVAGE, formed in 2013, have announced their new single, entitled ‘YNAMW (You Never Ask Me Why)’ coming out still by the end of 2020, revealing first teasing details about it. YNAMW is taken from the band’s upcoming debut album ‘Midnight Waylay’, out in February 2021. Furthermore the band reveals the single cover artwork, created by Vin Valentino.
Lead vocalist Tornado on the single:
“YNAMW is a fairly weird song. With it’s rhythmic and dynamic character YNAMW gives you some real nice boost while jogging or coupling or just rockin’ around.. (Meditation is propably out of the question).
Four different parts include two solos and of course – a catchy chorus. YNAMW tells a story about a modern cowboy-vampire and his call to action. Our hero reveals his yearn for eternal love. And just for making sure; this story is fictive! More about it later.”

“Break the boundaries, find your own way!”
Gentle Savage’s debut album, ‘Midnight Waylay’ is coming out in February 2021. It’s a way of describing an ambush at midnight, or going to a rock show; you never know what’s going to happen out there.
Midnight Waylay depicts a ‘taking it easy in the daytime, turning into a beast at night’ kind of lifestyle. Just like a hunter strikes from the shadows, ruthless and silent, these songs can without warning rock your world.
As a concept the album Midnight Waylay is best appreciated when served whole, but each song has its own character and works well independently. Find your own adventure, let yourself loose!”
“It is all about the songs. And their internal message. That’s the basic philosophy behind Gentle Savage.”
GENTLE SAVAGE are:
Tornado Bearstone, songwriter, vocals and guitar
Jay B, drums and backing vocals
Vance Bead, bass and backing vocals
