Having had a action packed summer including touring with MS MR, racking up over 15 festival appearances including Reading & Leeds, live sessions for Radio 1’s Huw Stephens and 6Music’s Lauren Laverne and previous single ‘Unkinder’ getting added to Radio 1 Introducing playlist, THUMPERS are now pleased to announce their next single will be ‘Sound of Screams’ – due for release on October 21st.
Comprised oflong time friends Marcus Pepperell and John Hamson Jr. – THUMPERS’ colourful, exuberant alt-pop celebrates their innate musical kinship and draws upon their shared childhood memories. Pepperell (vocals, guitar, keys) and Hamson Jr. (drums, vocals, bass) decamp to their Warwickshire hometown to record and also produce the majority of their music themselves. However for the recording of their debut album – due early next year – they have enlisted David Kosten (Bat for Lashes, Everything Everything) for additional production and mixing.
Thumpers have recently been appointed funding by the PRS Momentum Fund, additionally they will be supporting Everything Everything later this month before joining Chvrches on their UK and European tours next month.
