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?

The day draws closer that these five young men, this grand alliance of hopeful rockers, will blast off into the nether to face the ultimate test. As the prophecy calls, those who shall restore balance to the rock galaxy must be valiant; they must remain true to themselves, for without resilience and brotherhood, even the greatest of men will fall short of true greatness.

Also thank to #NASA, you guys are great really the best for letting us crash your pad. Oh one thing… There’s this machine in the lower tertiary lab which we were pretty sure was the space-toilet…well. Now it’s the space toilet. Sorry bout that. #Thunderdeuces

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.

 

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.

When the Earth was formed we came upon It; and found that gravity was indeed a thing.

HeadZone Phone

These six tracks are from our 2013 home-studio sessions “the Grand Alliance”, which we self-released as an EP near the end of 2013.

 

They are also pre-cursor recordings to the “big” record we’re making now; these six songs will be featured in their new, high fidelity, gig-hardened forms as well as six new songs… which you can hear us perform now at a shows or even sometimes on the YouTube!

 

FAST FORWARD > > > It’s August 2014 and we’re about a two thirds done and we’re very excited.

 

We hope you will be too, and in the meantime, please listen, share, like and (ahem) even buy these six wonderful rock groove compositions.

 

And of course… subscribe to the site for all the news. :)
