Raucous Irish rock-pop outfit live in Newcastle this February

The Irish Times THUMPER have confirmed their 2020 UK tour, taking the sextet from Glasgow to Brighton throughout February and March. The band have also blown up airwaves across the UK and Ireland with their infectious pop grunge single, ‘(You’re Bring Me) Down’. 

‘‘Down’ is a love song. It takes place in the afterglow of an argument. The tension in the song mounts as the narrator struggles to remember which side of the argument he’s on. As the guitars rise the words become more ambiguous to the point of incoherence.’’ – Oisin, Lead Vocals + Guitar

They are the band we’re obsessing over with a reputation for raucous and frenzied live shows, the rock-pop sextet are “most viscerally thrilling both on stage and on vinyl” – Hot Press Magazine. Championed by Louise McSharry, Ed Smith, Kate Brennan Harding, and Dan Hegarty in Ireland and with mainstream support across UK radio from Steve Lamaq at BBC Radio 6, Dan P Carter’s Rock Show on BBC Radio 1, BBC Introducing Across the Line, Kerrang! Radio and Amazing Radio, it’s no wonder THUMPER are constantly  topping the “Ones To Watch” lists and selling out shows constantly.

2019 has been insane for THUMPER, with prime slots across massive festivals all summer long including Barcelona’s Primavera, Body & Soul,  Kaleidoscope, and Electrictric Picnic followed by a sold out UK tour.

From being the highlight of Ireland Music Week with their mosh pit showcase in The Workmans Club, to shooting a documentary for RTE on sustainability THUMPER set the perfect tone at Dublin’s Extinction Rebellion this month.

The band kick off 2020 with a string of UK live dates in February/March – full dates are as follows:

24th February – Hug and Pint, Glasgow

25th February – Think Tank Underground, Newcastle

26th February – Oporto, Leeds
