Next month, Thunderpussy is heading out on a U.S. tour, with stops including Austin, Chicago, Nashville, San Francisco and a special New Year’s Eve show in their hometown of Seattle. Full list of tour dates is below and here.
Earlier this year, the unapologetically rowdy all-female rock band unleashed their anxiously awaited self-titled full-length debut, Thunderpussy, out now via Stardog Records/Republic Records.
A journey of epic proportions, the album features 12 anthems of unadulterated and unfiltered spirit driven by goddess-level ambition and a willingness to boldly defy any and all convention—and succeed. From the distortion-bathed desert romance of latest single, “Bandlands” to the swaggering call-to-arms of the metallic manifesto, “Thunderpussy,” these ladies revive, reinvigorate and resurrect rock ‘n’ roll like never before.
2018 is shaping up to be the year of Thunderpussy. They made a hell of a lot of noise at SXSW, tore up the road on a sold out headlining tour and dropped the teaser Greatest Tits EP, featuring “Speed Queen” and “Torpedo Love.” Now, they’re ready to take the crown with their full-length debut.
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.
