Hardly any hard rock act has seen a rise recent years like the all-female rock band THUNDERMOTHER. Following their latest, chart-breaking album Heat Wave (2020), that has been praised by both fans and international music press alike, August 19, 2022 will see the Swedish rock ladies release their hotly anticipated, new album, Black And Gold, via AFM Records!

Twelve adrenaline-fuelled songs will take you on a wild, high voltage and powerful ride into the filthy yet catchy rock ‘n’ roll sound THUNDERMOTHER is known and loved for: Creating infectious party rock songs with an irresistible feelgood appeal! Without any doubt, Black And Gold looks set to be a real landmark and next level for the charismatic, authentic and ambitious band, as previously-released, first singles I Don’t Know You and Watch Out already proved. Now, THUNDERMOTHER has shared a warm-hearting lyric video created by drummer Emlee Johansson, featuring never-before-seen footage of the band members and their childhoods, for new album single Hot Mess!

“About the video, we couldn’t be more happy! Emlee has really been able to capture the emotions of the song in this beautifully executed video, from the melancholy of being away from someone you love and wanting to find that love and then to finally having it. Emlee‘s talent goes beyond and we are so grateful that we are fortunate enough to have such a multi-talented, creative force in our tribe. We love this video, and we love her!!

Emlee adds: “To my band, thank you for believing in me as a video director/producer and trusting me with my vision. To my sisters, thank you for lending me the equipment necessary to make this video happen and last but not least, thank you Petter for always being my rock, coach and problem solver, without your support I would have lost my mind!“

With four studio albums to date and countless, frenetically acclaimed live shows under their belt – not even the Corona pandemic could completely slow the band down and they played concerts from such as the roof of a fire truck, THUNDERMOTHER were born for the stage, their energetic live shows have to be seen. Word of this has spread all the way to the top, and THUNDERMOTHER has just received the highest honor: none other than the legendary SCORPIONS and WHITESNAKE have invited the Swedes as special guests for their North American Rock Believer stadium tour 2022! All upcoming THUNDERMOTHER live dates, including an extensive schedule of European shows this summer, can be found below. 

Their new album, Black And Gold, was recorded at Bagpipe Studios, Stockholm, and was mixed and mastered by Søren Andersen at Medley Studios in Copenhagen. Coming out on Vinyl, CD and as Digital formats on August 19, 2022 through AFM Records.
