Varvakios is the sixth studio album by acclaimed Los Angeles postpunk group Savage Republic.

Recorded in Greece in February 2012, over the course of three hectic days, the album is a sequel of sorts to their 1989 album Customs, drawing on local sights, sounds and synergies. On several tracks the band are joined on violin by Blaine L. Reininger of Tuxedomoon, himself a resident of Athens.

The album was made in the midst of widespread civil unrest. Says frontman Thom Fuhrmann: "To walk into such a volatile situation and create this music in such a short time was by far the most satisfying experience that I've ever had as an artist."
