Premiere: The Wood Burning Savages – We Love You


If their last few shows are anything to go by – not least their thrilling performance at our Tuesday Throwdown at Lavery’s in last month – Derry’s Wood Burning Savages are a band coursing forth with a huge amount of momentum right now.

Recorded by Rocky O’Reilly at Belfast’s Start Together Studio, their new single, ‘We Love You’, is breakneck two and a half minutes that sees frontman Paul Connolly at the peak of his steadfast and ever-increasingly silver-tongued powers.

Speaking of the release, Connolly said, “It’s not a love song. It’s a song about youthful dreams and hope being sold off to the highest bidder. It’s a blitzkrieg hymn for our generation. We’re all wide awake and sick and tired of being sick, tired, skint, zero-houred and on the recession shelf.”

With a Belfast headline show set to be confirmed, the Wood Burning Savages play the following shows in April and May:

April 8: Monroes, Galway
April 22: Whelans, Dublin
May 11: Sandinos, Derry
