They are currently enjoying their first major run of dates in support of their ambitious new EP Out Of Body Auto-Message, produced by Girl Band’s Dan Fox.

As part of that, they will be heading to the town's Redrum venue at Guildhall Shopping Centre.

Thumper's five-track vinyl EP is available in all major record stores and they launched it with an exclusive signing at Tower Records in Dublin. Out of Body Auto-Message is the first studio record.

A spokesperson said: "It sees Thumper step away from their early days of lo-fi bedroom recordings into a more widescreen effort - without losing any of the grit that defined the early material. From the mile-a-minute word vomit of AFL, to the 10-minute psych meltdown of 3am & Restless, each song squirms to contain its saccharine pop sensibility.

"Thumper are the band everyone’s talking about, delivering bubblegum pop through a wall of sonic death. With a reputation for raucous and frenzied live shows and penchant for howling feedback and pounding rhythm, each show is an exercise in unpredictability."

UK radio support has come from the likes of the legendary Steve Lamaq on BBC 6Music and Kerrang! Radio.

Tickets to the show, priced at £5.50, are available from SeeTickets. For more on the band, find them on Facebook.
