Run Thunders Run.
First we put in the gear.
Then we get in the van.
Then we go to the show.
Lighting the Lantern
Our first indie music video.
Follow the Thunders on a perilous adventure
through the looking glass of time.
The Road Shows
Bring a towel, clean water and a
month's supply of toilet paper. Wait... what?
NO. That’s not what we do. Those kind of links are just click-bait so that you load their advertisements 25 separate times looking through some vaguely assembled nonsense. But you knew that already! So what are the other 24? Let’s find out together.
Look around, there are no ads here.
Just rock and roll :)
Join us? Peace.
Josephine, we sure had a swell time last night. I know we just met, but what do you think about seeing more of each other? You have a great smile, and everyone says we would be cute together. Look!
Seattle, stay out late with us… Friday 2/7 – the Josephine! Doors around 8pm.
Update on the codebase, we’re getting a lot of the bugs worked out and adding in content layers. A lot of stuff doesn’t work, so if you’re here, you’re early, but thanks for being a tester!
You might also be wondering what all this nonsense is about. We don’t know. Seriously. We’re a rock band in the 21st century and that makes for uncertain territory, and this adventure is just beginning. We’re building this site as a lens, a radar dish… a reflector for a bunch of kooky ideas as we explore what it means to make the music and take the music to the streets in strange new times.
What we do know is while there are many ancient tales yet to unravel, that which was shall never be again. We can not “bring it back”. But we can peel back the onion. Conduct our own living experiments. Apply the notions of heavy, deep, psychedelic, far-out, groove, space, thunder… to the now. And then… load it into a van and bring it to your town.
There is no record label. There is no plan. It might get weird.
Thunders of Wrath’s Bandcamp is now live! We’re still evaluating which provider to ultimately integrate into this site, but in the mean time, enjoy the high quality streaming Bandcamp offers and donate a buck if you like what you hear!

Music and the Mind
Particle based temporal extractions manifest as aural perceptions.
You’re still looking? Me too. I wonder what’s down here.
We said, OK, let’s Rock.
Guitars, fast cars and riches beyond imagination. Plus… we’re on the internet now. It’s a lock!!!
A Quest Began
With a lifetime of adventure ahead, and many ancient secrets to unlock, this road may have started at one lonely junior-high bus stop. Could fruity snacks have played a role?
Loaded With Power.
Each chord has been carefully selected for it’s both it’s raw gumption and loving, caring caress; while individual notes target perceptual accupoints and release forgotten sensual energies.
Musical Videos for Entertaining.
Home made music videos? Thunders of Wrath says YES. We’re going to make a lot of little films. Not a lot of sense, but let’s see where this goes.
Certified Suitable for Both Live and Recorded Enjoyment
Thunders of Wrath bangs your head and blows your mind. No? Ok how about where headphones and headbangs collide? Shit that’s even worse. Headbangs? Sounds like we’re going to SuperCuts. Who thought this one was a good idea. Let’s put something else here.
Let Freedom Ring.
Driving from town to town, throwing down, picking up and doing it all over again. It’s a tough job but someone’s got to do it. This is not true. We love doing this. Nevertheless, donate today to keep the Thunders free.
