    Shag Haired Villains
Shag Haired Villains are David Byrne, Derek Carney and Shane Waldron.
What started as a group of like-minded musicians getting together to jam out some cover songs in 2012, quickly developed into a vehicle for their own original music.
Shag Haired Villains established themselves on the Dublin scene with a series of showcases and support gigs around the capital. Their dual vocal approach between drummer Derek and guitarist David combined with a power trio band setup creates a unique live experience.
Shag Haired Villains independently released their debut album Red Lake in October 2015. The band also featured on the compilation album Garageland Volume 1 released in May 2017.
The band never stopped writing new music after the release of Red Lake and continued to push themselves to search for the sound that defines them. The result of this nonstop song writing resulted in their second album, There is A Noise, which was released in October 2017.
There is a Noise sees Shag Haired Villains add to the promise that was evident on Red Lake. The band have a raw energy on There is A Noise, a rough-edged record with plenty to say. Their sound is a heavy blues mashed with a grimy tone.
All twenty tracks from both albums can be listened to, and enjoyed here on Spotify, but Shag Haired Villains are best experienced live! Check out for more information about the band and to see upcoming live dates.
