Press Release:

Thundercub is a three-piece sound machine from Dunedin, whose aural assault has its origins in the math-minded electro-noise spectrum. If it were ever biologically possible (cʼmon science!) to create a bastard love-child of Final Fantasy VII, Battles, HDU, string theory & The Mars Volta; Robert Christgau would implode, the space-time continuum would be torn another one and you may come close to Thundercub.

Thundercub has been churning out space-grunge since 2009, bewildering audiences with their operatic ear-worms built on complex guitar loops, drum beats and synthesized oddities.

Thundercub release their 5-track debut EP "Thundercub" this August seeing them return to the North Island for the first time since CALH2011. The first single and music video "Falcor" premieres online at UTR August 17th, free to download, although they will never match the grand intensity of their live show.

Friday 19th August - Auckland - Cassette Nine
Saturday 20th August - Wellington - Happy - w/ The Blue Onesies & The Boxcar Rattle
