Thunderchief will be traveling with its usual 2-piece assault crew – Avail drummer/Alabama Thunderpussy founder Erik Larson, and underground crony Rik Surly, who together comprise a fierce series of unrelenting song and volume.
The band will be supporting their latest album, »Synanthrope«, which will see its CD release on July 18, 2022 via ASR Records. »Synanthrope« was produced by Mike Dean (Corrosion Of Conformity), Mark Miley (Alabama Thunderpussy, Municipal Waste, Avail) and Thunderchief, mastered by the one and only Nick Zampiello (Isis, Come To Grief, Inter Arma, Doomriders, Torche).
Richmond, Virginia’s notorious two-piece sludge ‘n’ roll duo hit the road for 12 days of volume, sweat and gear – and lots of it. Alabama Thunderpussy founder Erik Larson and his guitar-playing chum Rik Surly are heading to the Northeast US, while simultaneously releasing their latest effort, »Synanthrope« on CD format for the first time ever.
This round of shows kicks off in Charlottesville, VA with Telekenetic Yeti and will feature the band showcasing tracks from »Synanthrope«, along with deep cuts, select singles and fan favorites.
Known for their uncompromising live sets, the Thunderchief experience is one that you should judge that is for yourself. At a show. In July. Please.
“We’re especially excited for this run,” says Rik Surly. “The sheer power of this record (»Synanthrope«) really comes across well onstage. Mike Dean and Mark Miley did a great job and I can’t wait for everyone to see & hear it live.”
