Soulsavers (also known as The Soulsavers Soundsystem) are an English production and remix team comprised of Rich Machin and Ian Glover. The Soulsavers' downtempo electronica sound incorporates influences of rock, gospel, soul, and country. To date, the duo has released two albums: Tough Guys Don't Dance in 2003, and It's Not How Far You Fall, It's the Way You Land (with Mark Lanegan and others) in 2007. Soulsavers' third album, Broken, is set to be released on August 17, 2009. Mark Lanegan will once again feature as the main vocalist. Other prominent musicians such as Mike Patton (of Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, Tomahawk and other projects), Jason Pierce (of Spiritualized and Spacemen 3), Richard Hawley, and Gibby Haynes (of Butthole Surfers) will also feature on the album. The non-album single "Sunrise," a song written by Lanegan and sung by Will Oldham, will precede the album release on July 27, 2009. The B-side is a cover of Palace Brothers' "You Will Miss Me When I Burn", a song written by Oldham and sung by Lanegan. The pair are also making headway as film score composers, with a portfolio of work that includes the feature documentaries BattleGround: 21 Days on the Empire's Edge produced by the Guerrilla News Network. Their song "Revival" was featured on the November 22, 2007 episode of Grey's Anatomy, titled "Crash Into Me" part 1. The song was also featured on the December 10th episode of Friday Night Lights, "The Giving Tree." It is also featured in the snowboarding movie That's It, That's All. MySpace
