Following in the footsteps Fontaines DC they have played showcases at Music Cork and It Takes A Village, and are doing the festival rounds at all the major Irish festivals this summer including Electric Picnic, Sea Sessions, Kaleidoscope and many more! Riding the crest of New Music Friday playlist with the release of their latest single ‘In My Room’, THUMPER released a 5-track vinyl entitled ‘Out of Body Auto-Message’, available in all major record stores. They launched this new release with an exclusive signing at Tower Records and completely sold out their headline show at Dublin’s Lost Lane live music venue on May 25th.
THUMPER are the band everyone’s talking about, delivering bubblegum pop through a wall of sonic death. With a reputation for raucous and frenzied live shows and penchant for howling feedback and pounding rhythm, each show is an exercise in unpredictability.
Out of Body Auto-Message is the first studio record by THUMPER, produced by Dan Fox (Girl Band). In this new phase, THUMPER step away from their early days of lo-fi bedroom recordings into a more widescreen effort – without losing any of the grit that defined the early material. From the mile a minute word vomit of AFL, to the 10 minute psych meltdown of 3am & Restless, each song squirms to contain the dichotomy of its blistering psych and its saccharine pop sensibility.
It’s no wonder THUMPER are consistently topping the “Ones To Watch” lists, touring relentlessly – headlining Hard Working Class Heroes well, joining Fangclub on a national tour, playing their first UK show at a sold-out Shacklewell Arms. Following this year’s festival packed summer, THUMPER are set to hit the road this September with seven back-to-back dates in established music venues of major UK cities.
From UK radio support from Steve Lamaq on BBC 6, Kerrang! Radio, and Irish national stations including Today FM and RTE 2FM, to features with Paste Mag US, Hotpress and Nialler9, the future of rock and roll looks bright for these wide-eyed rockstars.
