Listen to the audio for ‘Let’s be Frank’ here:


The Pagans- Shepherds of Humanity (S.O.H) are a five piece hailing from the Black Country in the West Midlands, a place often revered as the birthplace of raucous noise, given the musical heavyweights that have emerged from its industrial roots.

Whilst it would be impossible not to be influenced by the sounds of their fellow ‘yam-yam’ brothers, Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin, they are passionate about the diverse cultures of both their city and indeed their own band members so they fuse elements of hip-hop/funk/punk/ska/metal/jazz/reggae to create a truly original vibe. In fact, with The Pagans S.O.H it’s more than just making music.  It’s a voyage of discovery, exploring where the realms of innovative sound will take us – whilst at the same time completely smashing through the barriers of genre.

They are not just a collective, they are a Pagan family and they welcome you all to strap yourselves in and join us on the ride. The Pagans are here and The Pagans are alive!

“Watching The Pagans S.O.H live is like going on the best magical, mystery tour. You don’t know where you are going or how you will get there, but it’s a great journey.” Pete Salisbury, Drummer (The Verve/The Charlatans)

Stress Release – The band was formed around December 2017 after finally finding all members. Most of the band have been friends for years and they finally came together to create the sound, they have always looked for. They’re a great group of mates that come from different musical backgrounds with preferred tastes in music. Their sound is a bit of a mash-up of plenty of different genres, but they mainly play psychedelic rock/reggae.
