Aiken Promotions proudly presents The Wood Burning Savages, live at Whelans (Upstairs), Saturday, 16th November 2019. Tickets €13.00 inclusive of booking fee, on sale this Friday at 10AM.
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 this Spring and will support Snow Patrol at their open air homecoming show in May.
