ACCLAIM FOR NEW PAGANS
“…a new force to be reckoned with.”
Kerrang!
 
“…a powerful band – not only in their musical abilities but in their way of conjuring something more, something to believe in.”
The Line Of Best Fit
 
“… noisy, catchy indie rock with sticky pop-punk melodies and a biting punk rock edge that never sounds anything less than urgent.”
Stereogum (album of the week)
 
“…with songs that are as driving and anthemic as they are arty and angular, and there’s some definite Sonic Youth-style noise rock in the mix too. New Pagans also write music with a purpose.”
Brooklyn Vegan
 
“…epic Belfast band, who are channelling huge Paramore vibes with their debut album along with acts like Pixies, Wolf Alice and The Yeah Yeah Yeahs.”
The Independent 
 
“simultaneously searing and catchy alternative rock.”
NPR

New Pagans have announced two very special headline shows for December this year, taking place at Dublin’s Academy 2 on the 9th and Belfast’s Limelight 2 on the 16th. Tickets go on sale on March 26th, with an exclusive pre-sale link available for members of the bands mailing list. Sign up here.


The announcement follows the recent release of their critically acclaimed debut album The Seed, The Vessel, The Roots and All, out now via Big Scary Monsters and features their stunning singles ‘Harbour’, the fiery ‘Christian Boys’ and the powerful ‘Yellow Room’. The latter also being Steve Lamacq’s ‘Record Of The Week’ on BBC 6 Music.
 
The album was featured as Stereogum’s ‘Album of The Week’ and has received glowing reviews across the board from the likes of Kerrang, The Line Of Best Fit, Brooklyn Vegan, NPR and more.
 
The band also showcased a special livestream event to celebrate the album release, which took place in the city they played their first ever show together – Derry City, in the far north of Ireland. The event was filmed inside the city’s musical hub, The Nerve Centre, and is available to view here.


In addition to Steve Lamacq’s continued support for their music, the band have also received regular plays from BBC 6 Music and Radio 1 by the likes of Chris Hawkins, Daniel P Carter, Phil Taggart, Huw Stephens and Jack Saunders as well as John Kennedy at Radio X, BBC Introducing, Kerrang Radio, Amazing Radio and more.
 
New Pagans also closed last year by winning the award ‘Best Live Act’ at the NI Music Prize 2020 cementing them as one of the most exciting and interesting rising acts, both sonically and visually.
 
As a collective they offer a wealth of artistic scope from Lyndsey’s skills in Irish embroidery, and her deep historical knowledge, to bassist Claire’s visual artistry and talents as a director, and the musical experience of guitarists Cahir O’Doherty (Jetplane Landing, Fighting With Wire), Alan McGreevy and drummer Conor McAuley.
