THUMPER are a noise-pop sextet, delivering bubble-gum psych through a wall of sonic death.
Their latest release ‘Out of Body Auto-Message’ (a 5 track vinyl released on May 24th) was launched to critical acclaim via an exclusive signing at Tower Records, followed by a sold out show at Dublin’s Lost Lane live music venue on May 25th.
Riding the crest of New Music Friday playlist with the release of their latest single ‘In My Room’ (Recently featured in Made in Chelsea on E4), and fresh off the back of an industry showcase performance at Primavera Pro, Barcelona, a tour with Bitch Falcon and showcases at Music Cork and It Takes A Village, THUMPER are gearing up for a tour of Ireland’s festival circuit this summer with headline and high profile performances at Knockanstockan, Sea Sessions, Body and Soul, Electric Picnic and Kaleidoscope festivals.
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.
From UK radio support from Steve Lamaq on BBC 6, Huw Stephens on BBC 1, Kerrang! Radio, and Irish national stations (including Today FM and RTE 2FM), to features with Paste Mag US, Hotpress and Nialler9, these Dublin rockers are set for a jam-packed summer.
“In Dublin, it’s been thrilling to witness The Murder Capital, Fontaines DC, and THUMPER to see who can be the most viscerally thrilling both on stage and on vinyl”
Hot Press Magazine
“Their noise-pop sounds like it could fuel jet engines”
