The Wood Burning Savages

The Wood Burning Savages

The Wood Burning Savages is a fast–paced punk rock band from Derry.

Compared to Manic Street Preachers, Future of The Left and Queens of the Stone Age, the band is known for frenetic live shows, full of breakneck guitars and frenzied anthems.

With each track The Wood Burning Savages share gritty real life tales of disillusion and indignation, giving a voice to a marginalised and divided generation.

Having played the BBC Introducing tent at Glastonbury, the band went on to play at festivals throughout Ireland and beyond, performing in Scotland, Poland and Germany.

They were selected by Dublin’s Whelan’s to play their yearly Ones To Watch 2018 festival, and were hand–picked by Jesse and Sebastien of Death From Above to support them on the Irish leg of their European tour.

‘In Paul Connolly, they have one of the next generation’s great rock frontmen.’ Tom Robinson, BBC Radio 6 Music

 ‘One of the most intelligent and articulate new Irish bands to come along in quite some time.’ The Irish Times

‘They absolutely slay it.’ Phil Taggart, BBC Radio 1
