The Thunderbolt Presents


Four times finalists in the South West Metal to the Masses competition despite not being a metal band and with their debut album Scrage voted 6th best of 2018 by the Sunday Rock Show on BCfm radio this Bristol four-piece are coming to the Thunderbolt to play their full-on mix of prog, post-punk and everything in between. Hard to pigeonhole and even harder to pin down this will be one of the rare appearances they make this year as they work on their second album tentatively titled One Day Son, All This Will Be Theirs.

"Twisting tunes, knotty off kilter riffs and sideways lyricism.” Amplifier

"I've never really heard anything like them before, and I really don't think I'm going to...this might just be the greatest thing you ever listen to.Metallum Sub Terr

“They threaten to blow the roof off the building...utterly bonkers...daft as a brush, but utterly capitivating.” Planet Mosh

BLACK WENDY:: Black Wendy have rehearsed their 10 track set for 300 hours. This will be the inaugural gig. And what a better place than in the Thunderbolt with these artists. Expect musings about Gangster Cats, Punk rock Vagabonds, Militant Joy riders and Poetic Boxers. They're loud, loud and LOUD.
