Debut album from Donna Cannone featuring two ex-Thundermother members now available

Former Thundermother guitarist Giorgia Carteri and drummer Tilda Nicke Nordlund have joined forces once again as Donna Cannone along with bassist Luca D’Andria and guitarist Bjorn Strid (Soilwork, The Night Flight Orchestra). The group released its debut self-titled album via Despotz Records back on May 27, 2022.

The YouTube caption for the band’s “Is It True” video indicates in part (with slight edits):

Donna Cannone – a gloriously hooky slice of melodic rock n roll, featuring two former Thundermother member Giorgia Carteri (guitars) and her fellow Italian ex-pat Luca D’Andria found themselves heading to a rehearsal room to play some music and, in their own words, ‘have some fun.’ Giorgia’s former Thundermother bandmate Tilda Nilke Nordlund was brought in on drums as the trio began putting together a number of new songs. A knock at the door brought a surprise as, guitar in hand, Björn ‘Speed’ Strid (Soilwork, The Night Flight Orchestra) had heard what the band were up to and wanted in. Keen to express himself as a lead guitarist, the world-renowned singer was impressed with what he’d heard the fledgling trio coming up and with and soon the quartet were recording demos. One of these demos fell into the hands of Swedish label Despotz Records and a deal was soon done.

Mia Karlsson (Crucified Barbara) and Donna Cannone about the new single: “After years away from the music scene, I couldn’t wish for a better way to return than with this super group of talented musicians and friends. Their positive vibe and genuine passion is so inspiring. I am so happy and lucky to be a part of this song!” // Mia Karlsson

“Sometimes life takes turns that seem so unreal and it makes you wonder whether you’d be able to get yourself through it all… by yourself…” // Donna Cannone

May 2022 will see the release of the band’s debut album via Despotz Records. It’s ten tracks of hook-laden songs, bristling with a punk attitude and a keen ear for melodic rock ‘n’ roll.”
