Provocative alternative-punks The Wood Burning Savages are an incendiary four piece from Derry, Northern Ireland that proudly wear the rebel spirit of their hometown on their sleeves. With blistering riffs and a sharp political bite, they are often compared to Yard Act, Death From Above 1979 and Stiff Little Fingers.
They return to live gigging in 2023 with a bumper headline tour throughout the UK and Ireland which includes a headline show at The Grand Social, Dublin 12th May 2023.
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 Live Act.
They’ve played in session for BBC Radio 6 Music and Ireland’s Today FM, the band has also been championed by BBC Introducing, BBC Radio 1, Radio X, RTÉ 2FM and Amazing Radio, with Tom Robinson describing vocalist Paul Connolly as “one of the next generation’s great rock frontmen.”
Previous Live Highlights include Left Field at Glastonbury festival, Sea Sessions, VESTROCK (NL), 2,000 Trees, support for Snow Patrol at their sell out home-coming show in front of 30,000 people, as well as support tours for Skinny Lister Therapy? and local legends ASH!
