The Wood Burning Savages

Provocative alternative-punks The Wood Burning Savages are an incendiary four piece from Derry city that proudly wear the rebel spirit of their hometown on their sleeves.

Recent winners of the NI Music Prize, their ferocious debut album ‘Stability’ beat out the likes of Snow Patrol, Ash and Bicep to be the first self released artist to win Northern Ireland Album of the Year. The band also took home the prize of Best Northern Irish Live Act with BBC Radio 6 Music’s Tom Robinson describing vocalist Paul Connolly as “one of the next generation’s great rock frontmen.”

With blistering riffs and a sharp political edge, they are often compared to IDLES, Frank Turner and The Clash.

The band kicked off 2019 by joining Skinny Lister for their extensive UK tour, supported alternative rock legends Therapy? on their sell out tour across Ireland.

The Wood Burning Savages

Formed in Derry City, Northern Ireland, The Wood Burning Savages are a fast paced punk rock band who proudly wear the rebel spirit of their hometown on their sleeves.

With pulsating riffs and a sharp political edge, they are often compared to Manic Street Preachers, The Clash and Queens of the Stone Age.

The band has been lauded for their frenetic live shows, each night serving up a full-blooded cocktail of breakneck guitars and frenzied anthems. Led by enigmatic frontman and songwriter Paul Connolly – with each track The Wood Burning Savages share gritty real life tales of disillusion and indignation, giving a voice to a generation more marginalised and divided than ever before.

The Wood Burning Savages kicked off 2017 with a string of shows supporting fast rising rock acts The Amazons, VANT and Fangclub, alongside a hometown show with cult Irish guitar heroes And So I Watch You From Afar.

Having played the BBC Introducing Tent at Glastonbury, the band have went on to play riotous sets at festivals throughout Ireland and beyond, taking in festivals in Scotland, Poland and now Germany.

This year also saw their music be embraced by the the world of wrestling with New York grappler 'The Product' David Starr selecting 'We Love You' as his entrance theme!

‘A tirade of virtuosic musicianship that needs measurement on the Richter Scale.’ – Hot Press
