Belfast , County Antrim

Shane - Vocals/Bass
Sam - Guitar/Backing vocals
Dan - Drums

Ferals are connected to the Belfast music community but their metaphysical
home is the north coast, a wind-lashed location for giant riffs, post-rock, DIY
music and admirable self-reliance. That’s where Shane and Sam once featured in
the band The Bayonettes and where Ferals made their first, impressive

“We used to say that we took major inspiration from the beach,” says Shane. “It’s
part of the north coast sound. There’s four of five beaches down there there’s
sand dunes and forest and everything. It’s mad. Then you come to the city and
you’re buzzing.”

In early 2018 they registered with their first release, ‘Brendan Rodgers’. It was
possibly the only song since ‘Frankly Mr Shankly’ by The Smiths to name-check a
football manager. So far, the subject of the song has not expressed an opinion but
Ferals were otherwise hailed as a band with leftfield energy, musical finesse and
wry humour.

Dan joined as their drummer and Ferals re-configured as a three piece. They are
party to Zool Records, a collective of like-minded acts and a positive source for
gigs, releases and rehearsal space. Also in 2018 Ferals were accepted onto the
Scratch project at the Oh Yeah Music Centre in Belfast.
