THUMPER catapult into 2020 unleashing a brand new lively single, ‘Ad Nauseam’, streaming from Fri 21st Feb. 2019 saw them release three singles “(You’re Bringing Me) Down”, “In My Room” and “AFL”, all of which received extensive UK radio support from Steve Lamacq, Huw Stephens, Daniel P. Carter, Kerrang! Radio & Radio X, as well as several Spotify playlists including New Music Friday, The Rock List and even a feature on E4’s Made in Chelsea. 

‘Ad Nauseam is a cautionary tale about repetition and vanity. The echo chamber of ego, a never ending horror show for an audience of one. The song deals with an interaction that has the protagonist narrowly escape being eaten alive by a starving internet date.’ – Lead vocals & guitar Oisin Furlong

This lively single offers a blistering 218 seconds of trashing lead vocals that wrestle with raw, roaring ego as this raucous anthem thunders from fractious chorus to pared back periods of brutal honesty. Throbbing bass lines haunt Ad Nauseam, hardly pausing for a breath, before being backed up by fresh, punchy, guitar. 

Last summer THUMPER released their debut EP “Out of Body Auto-Message” (produced by Daniel Fox of Girl Band) to a sold out show in Dublin’s Lost Lane, before embarking on a 3 month festival tour which included key slots at Primavera (Barcelona), Knockanstockan, Body&Soul, Electric Picnic and many more.

The latter half of 2019 saw the band complete their first headline tour of the UK, inc sold-out shows in London and Bristol, before finally return to Dublin for their second homecoming sell-out of the year in The Grand Social.

This year anticipates rampant success for Dublin’s noise-pop sextet, from performing at The Netherlands infamous Eurosonic festival, alongside a headline UK tour, topped off with performances across Belgium, Germany and France.
