I rocker inglesi THUNDER pubblicano oggi il loro nuovo album “Dopamine”. Ascoltalo a questo link: https://thunderband.lnk.to/DopaminePR
Il commento del chitarrista, cantautore e co-fondatore dei Thunder Luke Morley:
“Non avevamo preventivato di fare un doppio album ma mentre il processo di scrittura e registrazione andava avanti ci siamo chiesti ‘possiamo permetterci di lasciare tutto questo fuori?’. Alla fine lo abbiamo ridotto da 20 a 16 tracce ma non è stata una scelta facile.”
“Dopamine” è il primo doppio album dei Thunder, composto da 16 tracce. È un album satirico e pungente ma mai avvilente, ispirato dal ritiro di massa del mondo sui social media durante i lockdown, alla ricerca di quella carica di felicità. L’album è disponibile nei formati CD e doppio LP, con le esclusive cover lenticolari disponibili solo nello store online della band.

They’ve been riding a wave of success since their 2015 comeback album Wonder Days, releasing the acclaimed All The Right Noises last year, with Classic Rock speculating that it could be the band’s best album yet. The record went Top 3 in the UK Albums Chart; a quite incredible feat for a British hard rock band into their 4th decade. Globally, it was one of their most successful albums to date. Giving them their first top 10 in Germany and Switzerland; their highest chart entry in Japan, Belgium, and Austria; and for the first time they charted in markets including France and Spain.
And make no mistake – the last 30 years have been a rollercoaster ride. Thunder had a start in life like few other bands, delivering a killer debut LP with 1990’s Backstreet Symphony and scoring a US record deal with the help of a keen fan, Axl Rose of Guns N’Roses. Songs like ‘Dirty Love’ and ‘Low Life In High Places’ – according to the late radio legend Tommy Vance, “the greatest ever single released by a rock band” – have gone on to enter the British rock canon.
Despite these early triumphs, rewarded with gold awards and one of the most enduring fanbases on the planet, changes in musical fashions and two breakups made Thunder’s progress a rocky road indeed.
All that changed with the current sequence of albums that kicked off seven years ago with Wonder Days. Too vital to be simply labelled veterans, too varied in style to be just another classic rock band.
Thunder are at the very peak of their considerable form, still offering fans doses of ‘Dopamine’ after all these years.
