In the last 20 months Dublin psych-pop six piece THUMPER have gone from playing small hometown shows to touring Europe extensively, selling out headline shows, opening for Kasabian on their Irish tour, and hitting festivals such as Mad Cool (Madrid), Reading & Leeds (UK), Iceland Airwaves (IS), Electric Picnic (IE) and many more.

With a line-up of two drummers and four guitarists, THUMPER’s maximalist wall of sound has long since set them apart in the booming Dublin music scene and has them “punching like heavyweights alongside Fontaines DC and The Murder Capital” (Chris Hawkins, BBC Radio 6).

Their debut album Delusions of Grandeur was an epic introduction to the bands psych-drenched rumble which juxtaposes towering walls of distortion with saccharine melody and unabashed hooks.

In 2023 alone, the album landed them a nomination for Irish Album of the Year at the 2023 Choice Prize alongside Fontaines DC, Just Mustard, CMAT and more. Before thundering into the ESNS Radio Charts THUMPER received UK and international airplay across BBC 6 Music, BBC Radio 1, Radio X, KEXP, Kink, Kerrang and more as well as having made noteworthy TV performances on RTE’s Tommy Tiernan Show and Other Voices.
