THUMPER are a noise-pop quintet from Dublin, 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.
Fresh off the back of selling out the secret location launch gig for their 3rd EP "POP! GOES THE WEASEL" (Voted EP of the Year by Golden Plec & REMY, with single The Loser making top 10 songs of the year by The Last Mixed Tape), 2017 saw THUMPER top several Ones To Watch lists and tour relentlessly.
The latter part of the year saw a string of dates with The Strypes & Bitch Falcon, a national tour with Fangclub and a capacity bending headline show in The Workmans Club on New Years Eve.
THUMPER blasted into 2018 with AFL, the lead single from their upcoming studio EP (produced by Dan Fox of Girl Band).
Having sold out the single launch in the Sugar Club, and with the follow up single inbound, THUMPER are currently taking festival season by storm at Vantastival, Sea Sessions, Body & Soul, Knockanstockan, Castlepalooza, Electric Picnic and more.
2016’s “Magnum Opuss” was featured in the top 10 EPs of 2016 by The Last Mixed Tape, REMY and District Magazine, with the single 'Dan The Man' also featuring in The Thin Air & District Magazine's top 100 songs of 2016.

"This summer should see THUMPER become unstoppable"
