September 15, 2006, 12 years ago
Frontiers Records has announced the European release (minus the UK) of the brand new THUNDER album, entitled Robert Johnson’s Tombstone, on November 10th.
Following the release of both Shooting At The Sun (2003) and The Magnificent Seventh (2005) on the Italian label, the new album is Thunder’s third with Frontiers.“I think this new LP represents a natural continuation of the last record, it carries on where the last one finished”, said Thunder singer Danny Bowes. “It was written and recorded in the same way as the last one, with Luke doing the majority of the writing and producing. The only real difference is that it was partly recorded in Spain this time, we locked ourselves away in a house in the hills overlooking the sea, just far enough away from the local nightlife to avoid getting into too much trouble too often. The continuing freedom from outside influences on us and our label means that we're still completely free to make music we like. We feel a bit like we're re-defining the sound and style of the band, and it happens a bit more with each record we release.”
When asked to describe the sound that makes up the new record, Bowes said “It's rootsy and blues based, sexy and dirty, and sad and melancholy in places too. I'm sure Thunder fans will love it, whether they're young or old (and for some strange reason we seem to be attracting lots of new young fans).”
European fans shall however have to wait a bit to experience a new stream of the riveting Thunder shows. “There'll be no more European shows this year, as we're already committed to lots of great stuff in the UK up until Christmas” explains Bowes, adding “I'm looking towards a European tour in early 2007, it'll be great to get out and play the new songs live, they're really going to work.”
