Thumpers Announce 2013 European Live Dates With Everything Everything, Chvrches And Ms Mr

Having just released their debut EP 'Unkinder' on limited 12" vinyl through Transgressive Records and after a storming headline show at London's Hoxton Bar & Kitchen last week, THUMPERS now announce a new string of support dates with Everything Everything and MS MR as well as a European tour with Chvrches

THUMPERS are comprised of long time friends Marcus Pepperell and John Hamson Jr. - their colourful, exuberant alt-pop celebrates their innate musical kinship and draws upon their shared childhood memories. 

The 4-track EP reveals a band bristling with ideas and feaures a Jack Savidge (Friendly Fires) remix. Listen to the EP here. 

Recorded in their Warwickshire hometown where the London-based duo decamp to write and produce all of their music, the single features additional vocals ?from Marcus' sisters - true to the band's tight knitted collaborative vision - alongside astral synths and lush melodies to create their heady blend of modern pop. 

Though Pepperell (vocals, guitar, keys) and Hamson Jr. (drums, vocals, bass) produce the majority of their music themselves, they have recently begun working with David Kosten (Bat for Lashes, Everything Everything) who lends additional production and his mix skills to 'Unkinder (A Tougher Love)'. 

Live, they are augmented by an interchanging cast of friends and musicians in faithfully bringing their immersive dynamics and grand scale sonic vision to the stage. The ensemble cast recently recorded a Radio 1 Maida Vale session for Huw Stephens and will be heading into the studio for 6 Music's Lauren Laverne next week. 

THUMPERS are currently finishing their debut album with David Kosten.
