The Dead Maggies

The Dead Maggies

Tasmanian Convict Punk. Raucous cowpunk & folkpunk mixed with haunting murder ballads, timeless story telling and foot-stompin’, heart pounding rhythms. Their debut mini-album (2013) was feature release on ABC Local and Edge Radio, and had songs played on Triple J.

Their full-length album ‘Well Hanged’ (2015) was the first release on Folk Til Ya Punk Records. Well Hanged was featured as album of the week on three radio stations; ABC936, Edge Radio and 2BoB, got a few spins on Triple J, and great reviews around the world. Well Hanged was ranked #7 for London Celtic Punks’ album of the year list for 2015, and track ‘Billy Hunt’ made it into 4ZZZ’s Hot 100 poll for 2016.

In 2018 The Dead Maggies released a pair of EP’s ‘Wild Dogs and Flannies’ and ‘The Wild Folk’, with the latter set soon after white invasion of Tasmania, and the former being a take on contemporary stories of oppression.

The Dead Maggies also tour regularly, including trips to Europe in 2014 & 2017, and S.E. Asia in 2016 & 2019, plus frequent sojourns around Australia to take in some of the best festivals including; Falls, Port Fairy, The National Folk Festival, The Spiegeltent, Illawarra Folk Festival, Psyfari, St Albans, Folk By The Sea, Fractangular, Taste of Tasmania and The Huon Valley Midwinter Festival.
