SAVAGES Having put itself on the map everywhere with the short sharp shock of 2013 debut “Silence Yourself,” this explosively innovative London postpunk quartet broadens its perspective on the newly issued “Adore Life.” The musical attack remains edgy and lacerating, but the sentiments now feel less willfully corrosive, at times even cautiously celebratory. April 1, 8 p.m. $22. Paradise Rock Club. 800-745-3000, http://www.ticketmaster.com 

JUNIOR BOYS Reunited on record for the first time in five years on the new “Big Black Coat,” the Canadian duo of Jeremy Greenspan and Matt Didemus enriches its customary mix of electropop and R&B with generous doses of Kraftwerk and Detroit techno. (Don’t miss the Robert Hood remix of the title track.) Lyrically the album’s a gripper, the titular cloak a metaphor for loneliness, lust, isolation, and more. April 1, 8 p.m. $15. Brighton Music Hall. 800-745-3000, http://www.ticketmaster.com 

TAU CROSS Forget Axl N’ Angus, here’s a supergroup you’ll actually want to hear: Rob “The Baron” Miller, singer and bassist for iconic English crust crew Amebix, joined by Voivod drummer Michel “Away” Langevin and guitarists John Misery (Misery) and Andy Lefton (War//Plague). The group’s self-titled 2015 debut featured riff-rock anthems delivered with seasoned swagger and Miller’s signature rasp. April 4, 8 p.m. $15, advance $13. Middle East Upstairs, Cambridge. 617-864-3278, http://www.mideastclub.com
