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.
After a year of topping end of year lists with their EP ‘POP! GOES THE WEASEL’, and gathering plaudits for their infamous live shows (a sell-out EP launch, a national tour with Fangclub, and a string of dates with The Strypes, Bitch Falcon + Otherkin, and to top it off a capacity bending NYE show in Dublin’s Workmans Club), 2018 saw THUMPER hit the ground running.
Now two singles deep with AFL and the 7 minute (You’re Bringing Me) Down - both produced by Dan Fox (Girl Band) - 2018 has seen THUMPER go from strength to strength. With a pile of sold out shows, and packed out festival appearances in their wake, THUMPER have well and truly found their stride.
Catch THUMPER at their end of year homecoming show in the Workmans Club on Nov 30th, Doors 11.45pm x
“‘(You’re Bringing Me) Down’ is a killer track ready to blow the dust out of any old speaker”

“Hyperactive guitar riffs, awash with fuzz. Not for the faint of heart, but the group never really have been.”
Paul MacLoone (The Undertones, Today FM)
