The rock history is stacked with giant rock bands who’ve unleashed their big power ballad on the third album, the same ballad that later has led to their broader breakthroughs. On their third album, Thundermother has chosen release their first ballad ever – “Fire In The Rain” that will be released as a single February 2nd.
“Fire In the Rain” is our first ballad ever! This track celebrates that special person that shines up your day and stands by your side through thick and thin. Unconditional love.
High energy, wild riffs and a sturdy groove straight from the 70’s – two and a half years after the critically acclaimed album “Road Fever”, Swedish rock’n’roll band Thundermother returns. And it’s a truly amazing come-back. Thundermother’s third album is simply one of the greatest rock records you’ll get to hear this year.
In the spring of 2017 Thundermother saw some drastic changes. Four members left, three new ones arrived. But the band’s center piece – guitarist and founder Filippa Nässil – stood steady by her vision. Around that vision the new line-up quickly gathered and every piece immediately fell into place. In June the new, upgraded version of Thundermother released “We Fight For Rock N Roll” – a single that was just as much of a statement as a taste of great deeds to come. After that they hit the road for a 20 dates long tour through Europe.
The highlight of the tour was the concert at Wacken Open Air. After touring with Michael Monroe, W.A.S.P, D-A-D, Danko Jones etc. and a sold-out European headline tour it was finally time for the band to conquer Wacken. Even though they’ve only played together for a few months the show was a complete success for Thundermother’s new line-up.
After a summer of successful touring Thundermother rehearsed intensively for a month, before it was time to head into the studio Nordic Soundlab in Skara. The flow was unbelievable. In just ten days they recorded 15 new tracks. Everything – including vocals – was recorded live. And almost everything was wrapped in the first take. 13 of these 15 tracks became the bands third and self-titled album “Thundermother”.
Thundermother have never sounded this great. Together with three times Swedish Grammy awarded producer Thomas Plec Johansson (Mustasch, Hardcore Superstar, Watain etc.) Thundermother have maxed just about everything. Just listen to the Deep Purple-ish knockout punch “Rip Your Heart Out”, when singer Guernica Mancini throws lethal jabs over riffs that aren’t kneeling for no one and whipped drums, that can crush bones.
Thundermother may have left their musical comfort zone this time, but you’ll still recognize the band. It’s still the same great, high-octane, 70’s breathing rock’n’roll that the band has spoiled us with ever since their 2014’s debut album. It’s just that this time the groove is even groovier, the sound is even better and the songs cuts even deeper.
“Thundermother” is released on February 23rd through Despotz Records. Now you can pre-order their brand new album here! The “Tornado pack” includes signed limited Vinyl, CD, Patch, T-shirt and more! You will get it on the release date 23th of February…
