Soulsavers (also known as The Soulsavers Soundsystem) are an English production and remix team composed 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 four albums: ''Tough Guys Don't Dance'' in 2003, ''It's Not How Far You Fall, It's the Way You Land'' (with Mark Lanegan and others) in 2007, ''Broken'' in 2009 (again, with Lanegan and guest vocalists), and ''The Light the Dead See'' (with Dave Gahan of Depeche Mode). Soulsavers' third album, ''Broken'', was released on 17 August 2009. Mark Lanegan once again featured 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) also feature on the album. The non-album single "Sunrise," a song written by Lanegan and sung by Will Oldham, preceded the album release on 3 August 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, that is also featured on the ''Broken'' album. The pair are also making headway as film score composers, with a portfolio of work that includes the feature documentary ''BattleGround: 21 Days on the Empire's Edge'' produced by the Guerrilla News Network. Their song "Revival" was featured on the 22 November 2007 episode of ''Grey's Anatomy'', titled "Crash Into Me" part 1. The song was also featured on the 10 December episode of ''Friday Night Lights'', titled "Giving Tree". It is also featured in the snowboarding movie ''That's It, That's All''. ''Revival'' also featured in the trailer of the 2011 film ''Machine Gun Preacher''. "Kingdoms of Rain" featured in the ''Lie to Me'' episode "Truth or Consequences," which aired on 5 October 2009. They supported Depeche Mode during the European leg of their Tour of the Universe in late 2009. Depeche Mode's frontman Dave Gahan is the main vocalist and lyricist on Soulsavers' fourth album ''The Light the Dead See''.
