Seattle rock ‘n’ roll fourpiece Thunderpussy’s highly-anticipated, self-titled debut album is set for release on May 25th via Stardog Records/Republic Records. See the full Thunderpussy tracklist below. Pre-order Thunderpussy now here.
Of their new track, Thunderpussy says, “Every band should have a theme song, especially if your band is called ‘Thunderpussy.’ We knew from the moment the band got together that this was our big chance to do what we had always wanted since the first time we heard “Bad Company” by Bad Company: write a self-titled track. The lyrics are playful and tongue-in-cheek, with slashing guitars and crunching bass, building to a dramatic crescendo. You can hear an actual smashing explosion at the climax—that’s a television meeting pavement at high velocity. ‘Coming for ya…On the prowl…RAWR! Thunderpussy!!!’”
This May, Thunderpussy is set to play several headlining dates across North America, including stops at Mercury Lounge in New York, NY on May 16, Elsewhere in Brooklyn, NY on May 18, Great Scott in Boston on May 15 and more. See the full list of tour dates below. Tickets are available now via Thunderpussyusa.com.
What if Thor’s Hammer of the Gods from “Immigrant Song” landed in the hands of four wise, willful, and wild women? Well, it would sound something like Thunderpussy. The quartet—Molly Sides [vocals], Whitney Petty [guitar], Leah Julius [bass] and Ruby Dunphy [drums]—do the most rock ‘n’ roll thing possible and quite literally fuck up every rock ‘n’ roll stereotype you know to be true, piercing the halls of Valhalla in the process. The Seattle-based group turned into a quiet phenomenon with the endorsement of Rolling Stone and Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready, as well as a string of already legendary performances under their high-waisted belts.
