THUMPER are a noise-pop sextet from Dublin, delivering bubble-gum psych through a wall of sonic death.
This year saw THUMPER release their debut studio EP 'Out of Body Auto-Message' (Produced by Girl Band's Daniel Fox) to critical acclaim and a sold out show in Dublin’s Lost Lane.
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 industry showcases at Primavera Pro (Barcelona), Music Cork and It Takes A Village, THUMPER just completed an irish festival tour including headline and high profile performances at Body&Soul, Knockanstockan, Sea Sessions, Electric Picnic and more.
Capitalising on the UK radio support from Steve Lamacq on BBC 6, Huw Stephens on BBC 1, Kerrang! Radio and more, THUMPER also embarked on a week long UK tour in September, and will close the year out with additional shows in London and a homecoming show in Dublin's Grand Social on Nov 15th.
“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
"A band you have to witness live to fully appreciate just how terrific they are: A purified dynamic marks their cards"

“THUMPER are the ultimate among a host of noisey and energetic noise rock groups in the country”
“Their noise-pop sounds like it could fuel jet engines”
“New, exciting, revolutionary and outright inspiring”
