A rock n roll juggernaut spat out from the back alley guts of Dublin City. Jonny Lucey and Baz Joyce are sonic powerhouses; a force of nature that play with the impact of a nuclear bomb. A nuclear bomb drenched in a rhythm that commands you to dance. If Queens of the Stone Age, Black Rebel Motor Cycle Club and The Black Keys had an abominable baby, and that baby grew up to be a badass musician, it would sound like New Valley Wolves.
Childhood friends Jonny Lucey and Baz Joyce both grew up in Dublin. Diverging paths took Jonny to West Cork and Baz to Australia. When they found themselves back in Dublin – a need to play hard-rockin', gutsy and real music drew them together on one fateful night for a friendly jam – the rest is history.
Since exploding onto the Irish music scene in 2014, NVW have scorched a path across Ireland, the UK, Holland and Canada. Their debut album ‘Refusal is our Weapon’ was released to critical acclaim at home and abroad. They’ve graced the stages of all the big Irish festivals and were invited to play to a crowd of 10,000 at Appelpop Festival in Holland (which they smashed).
They’ve built their reputation as Ireland’s fiercest live band with a sound bigger than an atomic bomb and an energy that borders on psychotic. New Valley Wolves play dirty blues-rock riffs with a sinister edge.
