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 has seen THUMPER top several Ones To Watch lists and tour relentlessly - headlining Hard Working Class Heroes & Whelans Ones To Watch Fest, as well as joining Fangclub on a national tour.
The latter part of the year saw a string of dates with The Strypes & Bitch Falcon, and a capacity bending headline show in The Workmans Club on New Years Eve. Now having completed their 4th EP (Produced by Girl Band’s Dan Fox), THUMPER turn their attention to 2018...
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.
"The group have delivered three very strong EPs with Pop! Goes The Weasel being the most mature of the bunch. THUMPER are ready... for a breakthrough into the mainstream on their own terms"
The Last Mixed Tape
"A couple of lauded EPs has seen their reputation rise but it’s live that THUMPER’s name is spreading fast... THUMPER has quickly become one of the most exciting live bands in Ireland. They leave an indelible mark in your memory after a performance"
"New, exciting, revolutionary, and outright inspiring"
"This summer should see THUMPER become unstoppable"
"Creatively they are a band that refuse to stand still."
"An experience to say the least"
