Formed in 1989, UK hard rock act Thunder are back with a vengeance! After several line up changes and numerous break-ups the band have built on the success of recent reunion gigs, a 2015 European tour and the release of a new album in the same year to once again hit the road. They are gearing up for a huge tour that stretches right around the country in 2017.
Signed to EMI Thunder’s first album Back Street Symphony was produced by Andy Taylor of Duran Duran fame, with this blues-rock effort followed by an appearance at the Monsters of Rock festival in 1990 and another album - Laughing on Judgement Day - in 1992, which rocketed to number two in the UK chart. More albums followed but after the release of their fifth long player in 1999 the band split - with guitarist and songwriter Luke Morley going solo.
The following year saw them reunite for major shows, including the Monsters of Rock UK tour in 2002, as well as studio time that spawned the release of more albums, including Bang!, their ninth album in 2009. This year saw the band part ways yet again, with Morley forming The Union while front man Danny Bowles appeared with Kenney Jones of Small Faces fame at a number of live shows. From 2011 to 2014 the band continued to play for one-off shows as well as supporting rock legends Whitesnake and Journey. Back in the limelight, the band’s dedicated fans willed them to return to the studio. The release of Wonder Days in 2015 is proof that the boys still know how to write a tune, with Morley’s powerhouse riffs and engaging melodies again the perfect compliment to Bowles’ distinctive and much loved voice.
