Bassist Majsan Lindberg not joining Thundermother on upcoming tours to focus on education
Thundermother bassist Majsan Lindberg will be taking some time off from the group to focus and finish her education.
In a video posted today on Facebook, Lindberg provided her reasons as follows (as transcribed by Sleaze Roxx): “Hi guys, Majsan here. I hand’t seen you in a while and I think you might be wondering what I’ve been up to. Well, my situation is this. I’ve been struggling financially and also with my mind to have nothing to really focus on and to bring me income. So what I’ve done is that I entered an education last year and this is something that I need to finish. This is due to financial reasons. Also, it’s due to if something like this pandemic happens again, I need to have it as back up. And this unfortunately means that I can’t be going on tour with the girls for a while, which really sucks, but it will be for the better in the end. So what I want to do now is wish the girls and everyone involved the best of luck with this tour and that they have so much fun and enjoy it. And I also want to say to all the fans that I miss you really, really much, and I hope to see you again when all of this is over.”
Lindberg was not in Thundermother‘s line-up when the group performed a virtual live stream concert from the Olympic Stadium Berlin in Berlin, Germany on May 11, 2021.
Thundermother released the album Heat Wave Deluxe Edition last month and Sleaze Roxx stated in its review: “Overall, Heat Wave Deluxe Edition is a very cool release. Just the bonus CD with the three new songs, the three acoustic tracks and the four live renditions is worth the purchase price right there. The album cover is also really cool with a young woman seemingly in her bedroom decorated by rock posters. I can certainly relate. Hell, one of my friends even put posters up on his bedroom ceiling back in the day because he had run out of room on his bedroom walls. Those were the days but I digress. The bedroom walls on the Heat Wave Deluxe Edition album cover are filled of course with lots of Thundermother posters but you can also see a few from some of the biggest bands in the land — KISS, AC/DC and Van Halen. If you have somehow not yet picked up Heat Wave, you should definitely get Heat Wave Deluxe Edition. Even if you have Heat Wave already, the bonus CD on Heat Wave Deluxe Edition is more than worth the purchase price and it will be a CD that I will definitely play for years to come.”
