"Fervent, Caledonian-folk-meets-mariachi-brass and ivory-thumping rave-ups" Mojo Magazine
With their wild, vivid and moving unique brand of folk-rock with a mariachi twist, Woodenbox, have established themselves as one of the most exciting live bands in Scotland. The alt-folk sextet are set make a triumphant return with the release of their forthcoming album, ‘Foreign Organ’, which will be released via acclaimed Glasgow based label, Olive Grove Records in June 2015.
Having wowed crowds at festivals such as Belladrum, Rockness, Celtic Connections, Wickerman and T in the Park, to name just a few, Woodenbox have firmly established themselves as incredible live performers. Their infamous stage invasion at the Insider Festival is the thing of Scottish festival legend. As well as wowing crowds in Scotland the band spent 2012 touring the US extensively, including a highly successful appearance at SXSW.
In 2014, Woodenbox squirreled themselves away in the studio to record their hotly anticipated third album, featuring collaborations with their label mates, Skinny Dipper. This new direction sees the band take on a mature sound, with a mix of songs that could break your heart and others that make you want to get up and dance. It’s a triumphant album and surely now 2015 is theirs for the taking.
"Woodebox's ability to snakecharm feet into hypnotic tapping, such is the level of the jaunty groove on show" The List
