2020 saw THUMPER perform a blistering Eurosonic show, a sold out Molotow Hamburg performance, and embark on a month long UK/EU tour in support of their single Ad Nauseam.
This intense touring schedule was abruptly cut short in March due to Covid19, however the band channeled this momentum back into the studio. In June the single “Topher Grace” was released to critical acclaim – scoring extensive radio play on BBC6, Kerrang! & RadioX amongst others in the UK, as well as support from RTE and others at home in Ireland. It was also included on several Spotify and GooglePlay playlists, making the cover of Spotify’s The Punk List.
Now with several successful live-streamed shows under their belt (including the Topher Grace launch show, a Waves Vienna festival show, and a headline show from the Button Factory, Dublin hosted by HotPress) THUMPER set their sights on late 2021 – including a festival slot at Iceland Airwaves, an international tour, and the announcement of a long awaited debut LP.
“THUMPER are punching like heavyweights alongside Fontaines D.C. & The Murder Capital” – Chris Hawking, BBC Radio 6
“A band so far up my street they might as well be kicking my front door in” – Phil Taggart
“Pop hooks and ragged guitar noises collide on THUMPER’s bratty, frenetic punk rock.” – Q Magazine
“My highlight of Eurosonic, Two drummers making an epic noise on stage. Such a huge band. Really really massive sound” – Abbie McCarthy, BBC Radio 1
“In Dublin it’s been thrilling to witness The Murder Capital, Fontaines D.C. & THUMPER to see who can be the most visceral on stage and on record” – Hot Press Magazine
“Cult heroes in their native Dublin, the band’s crunching sound and intense live shows are shot through with a dynamic, ultra-infectious sense of energy.” – CLASH Magazine
