“Unfortunately, we have some sad news today and before the Tour starts tomorrow we would like to share the news with you! Our great bassplayer Sara decided to leave the band, please see her statement below. We wanna thank her from the bottom of our hearts for the great time and awesome experience in the last 2,5 years, what a ride! Be sure we will keep on being good friends and be sure you will see her together with us on stage again!
Sara, WE LOVE YOU, thanks you for everything!!
“Hey everybody, I’ve decided to quit Thundermother. The main reason is lack of time and energy. I’ve had two wonderful years with the girls, I’ve seen so many amazing places and I’ve met so many wonderful people. Its been a dream come true. I don’t regret any second of this adventure and I will look back on this time with love and joy. Every story has an ending and this is where my Thundermother story ends. I won’t be a part of the band anymore but we will still be good friends and I will eagerly follow the girls from a distance. I wish them all the best and I am sure they will continue to kick ass. I will stand in the front when they conquer the world. Love you guys, and thank you big time for these years. Who knows, one day I might just join the girls on stage for a song or two!
And last but not least: THANK YOU to all the fans, for all the love and support, I will never forget! See you out there!””

ROCK / CLASSIC ROCK High energy, wild riffs and a sturdy groove straight from the 70’s – two and a half years after the critically acclaimed album “Road Fever”, Swedish rock’n’roll band Thundermother returned, and it was a truly amazing come-back. Thundermother’s third album is simply one of the greatest rock records you’ll get to hear this year.
