The Wood Burning Savages Short Info

"I love that band's lyrics, I love that band's energy!" - Phil Taggart, BBC Radio 1.

“Derry/Londonderry's The Wood Burning Savages are The Most Amazing Live band I Have Seen All Year - bar none. End of." - Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music.

Hailing from Derry city, The Wood Burning Savages are a rip-roaring 4 piece with a taste for vitriol and a passion for ceiling-smashing songwriting.

In the last two years the Maiden city quartet have released numerous singles and an EP. And it’s this constant charge that has led to industry tips and knowing nods from BBC 6Music, BBC Radio 1 and RTE2fm.

But it’s their frantic, inimitable live show that has really got music fans and critics talking. Selling out shows in Belfast and beyond the band have been heralded for their turbulent cocktail of ready-made anthems that’ll get your heart pumping and your fists raised.

Fronted by northwest wild child and people’s poet, Paul Connolly, the band try to document the hurt, the hopes and the anger of the injustices of our age all within the confines of jangling alternative rock, drawing comparisons to The Clash, Manic Street Preachers, New Order and Echo & The Bunnymen.

They’ve toured Ireland and the UK extensively and shared festival stages with celebrated Irish acts such as Hozier (Glastonbury BBC Introducing Stage) and Villagers (Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival, Inverness.)

With a wealth of fresh material waiting to be heard, the band are set to enter the studio at the start of next year with an Irish and UK tour pencilled in for Spring 2016.
