Three Wise Monkeys Colchester



TWM Live presents a Reading & Leeds Festival Warm-Up Show from THUMPER on Thursday 25th August as part of the Music Venue Trust and The National Lottery’s #revivelive tour. Tickets are buy one get one free, so bring that friend to Three Wise Monkeys Colchester you’re always introducing new music to.

As contemporaries of Fontaines D.C. and The Murder Capital, THUMPER have cornered the noise-pop market with a maximalist approach, stuffing every corner of their sound with blown-out melody and psych-drenched noise. Their penchant for unabashed hooks and saccharine melody, set against their signature wall of sound, sets them apart.

Live, THUMPER are a massive beast. There is a line-up of three guitarists, a bassist, two drum kits, and four-part harmonies, often totally at odds with the chaos below. THUMPER combine intense and wry lyricism with a huge, punk, sonic assault to startling – and hugely powerful – musical effect.

“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

“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
