THE WOOD BURNING SAVAGES

https://www.facebook.com/TheWoodBurningSavages/

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!

‘The most amazing live band I have seen all year- bar none, end of! ‘ – Tom Robinson, BBC 6Music

‘Ferocious intelligence, primitive abandon and excoriating tendencies! In troubled times, the world needs punk rock heroes – The Wood Burning Savages are punk rock heroes!’ – Stephen McCauley, BBC Radio Ulster

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

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