AN ANNOUNCEMENT

28th January 2008

Dear All

 

As we enter Thunder's 20th anniversary year, we've found ourselves becoming increasingly busy with our various activities outside of the band, and we've come to the conclusion that there are simply not enough hours in the day to fit it all in. Having discussed it at length, we've decided that this is a fitting time for us to hitch up our wagons and ride into the sunset. We've therefore decided to give you advance notice that we intend to cease all recording and touring activity, as of the summer of 2009.

 

In practical terms, this means that we will cease to be a band as of the summer, but until then it will be more or less business as usual. The 2008 Xmas Show CDs will be released as promised, and the previously announced shows in Europe (February) and Japan (April) will go ahead as planned. We will use these shows, as well as any festival slots we can secure, to make the most of the time left, and say our goodbyes to you.

 

With that in mind, despite only touring a couple of months ago, we couldn't make our exit without saying goodbye to UK fans, so we've arranged a final UK tour, which will take place in early July. The dates are as follows:-

 

03/07 - Manchester Academy

04/07 - Sheffield City Hall

05/07 - Cambridge Corn Exchange

07/07 - Newcastle City Hall

08/07 - Nottingham Rock City

10/07 - Wolverhampton Civic Hall

11/07 - London Shepherds Bush Empire

 

Tickets will be on sale as of Friday 30th January.

 

We've played loads of fantastic shows over the last 20 years, but we want all the shows between now and when we go to be the best we've ever done. We really hope you'll want to be there to help us to do that.

 

Thanks

 

Thunder

I'm not surprised. Anything outside of their debut is patchy at best imo so I won't exactly miss them. I wish them well though!

I could never even understand the appeal of their debut. Not even that one worked for me and the rest were just crap, imo, so I have to admit I am completely unmoved by this news.

 

To the fans, though, my heart goes out to you. :(

I would check it out again Geoff. Great hooks & some heart felt lyrics.

It's not a bad album. In fact, I think I did like a song off it. I just remember I played it, thought it was okay and definitely better than their other stuff, but I wasn't really moved that much at all by it. I think it reminded me of Beggars and Thieves' debut. Good solid rock, but maybe a little unspectacular. Maybe worth revisiting.

Well that's not very nice.

Thunder are one of the first bands I got into and are one of the best around. This is about the third time they've called it a day so I'll expect them back in a few years.

All the albums are excellent. Especially the first four.

Probably my 2nd favourite band of all time :bowdown:

Another great, talented band packs up. This band released some great stuff, especially their first 3 discs, which were superb albums. A Really really good live band aswell, which is where they will be really missed by alot of people.

Again? Didn't they call it quits a couple of years back? Or am I misremembering...

I think you're right I believe that broke up around 97/98 for a few years.

 

They broke up in 1999 just after releasing "Giving The Game Away"

Already can't wait for a reunion show down the track hopefully with a DVD release :lol:

    • I like this song, no issue with the GV. What don't you like?
    • Hello, me in 2019. I used to think that way but over the course of the last two years I have lost all respect I ever had for the police. In this instance, I honestly don't know. I'm sure there's two sides to the story, but I'm far less inclined these days to feel any sympathy for the police considering the roles they've played in covid management. Fuck them, I regrettably say these days. 
    • How overproduced is his voice?
    • Pushing the kids was pretty harsh, but there is no context. Judging by the way she was speaking, accusing the police of groping her friend, you'd think that she was likely inciting them. Doesn't justify the shove of a kid, but in a karmic world, possibly got what she deserved. I hate these clips, and the Avi is a fucking dick. He dissipates what he does by leaning so far to the right that he's as bad as the lefties. The cops wouldn't be detaining a young girl unless they had a reason. People honestly think that all 10 cops there was all in on being unfair and persecuting the girl? nope.
    • John Cooper of Skillet fame wanted to experiment with a heavier style than his main band allowed for, so the Fight the Fury side project was born. As you can tell from the video, it basically sounds like Skillet crossed with Slipknot. Not for everyone but I kind of dig it.
    • You've presented a whole load of easily debunked statements about atheism. When corrected you've taken your bat and ball home.  You had a chance for a conversation but for some reason unable to have that conversation. The you just resort to insults.   I turn my other cheek. 
    • The arrogance and hypocrisy in this statement is what is staggering. Maybe we could turn this into a big collective circle jerk for all the poor misunderstood atheists. I will leave you to it. Enjoy.
    • I know this thread is Mr.AOR's, so I won't impose, but I do need to post this one. I've posted it before, but I do think this track truly encampasses the true meaning of our modern day Christmas.     
    • Nice SCTV reference.   Rick Moranis is an absolute legend and good guy by all accounts.
