THE WOOD BURNING SAVAGES

https://www.facebook.com/TheWoodBurningSavages

Unbridled creation and a relentless yearning to sing about the things everyone else is too afraid sing about fuel The Wood Burning Savages. 2014 saw the band play a number festivals in the UK and Ireland, including a prestigious slot at Glastonbury’s BBC Introducing stage, and complete a UK & IRE wide tour promoting their ‘Boom’ EP, released in autumn. The band are currently laying the foundations for their first album which is guaranteed to grab listeners by the lapels and shake the build up of mainstream popular culture candyfloss from their heads.

“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.

“One of my favourite tracks of 2014 tracks so far…We just sat there and we watched the guys absolutely SLAY IT to a load of people in the BBC Introducing stage” – DJ Phil Taggart, BBC Radio 1, on the band’s song ‘America’ and their performance at Glastonbury 2014.

The Artwork for these 4 EP’s tie together to complete a bigger picture.
