Stunned by electric atmosphere at the band’s first gigs and impressed by early industry accolades such as a runner up award at the national rock music awards, the press talked the band’s debut 2015 album into the stratosphere.
Yet these boys from Berlin tried hard to keep their feet planted on the ground. And then came the support slot request from Deep Purple. Something had been set in motion: this band, industry insiders and early fans knew, will make their mark, come what may. Let’s be honest: this isn’t the first band to combine classic 60s and 70s rock with blues, indie and garage influences… Jet and The Hives did it. But The Wake Woods twist and remold those influences so irreverently, injecting them with their own infectious artistic energy, that they create a unique mixture of raw, abrasive rock energy with an engaging exuberance that sets them apart; their unabashed confidence never crosses the line to caustic arrogance. This is raucous, thrill-seeking, riotous rock that’s home to some insightful, heartfelt storytelling
