Thundermother singer Guernica Mancini recovering from surgery to remove tumour in one of her cheeks

Good news for Thundermother fans as the band’s lead vocalist Guernica Mancini is currently recovering from surgery after having to deal with a growing tumour in one of her cheeks.

The following message was posted in part on Thundermother‘s Facebook page earlier today:

“Today we wanna give a big shoutout to our amazing singer, who is currently recovering from a surgery. Guernica has been struggling with a growing tumor in her cheek since May this year, and what an incredible fighter she is, touring as much as we have with this constant worry in the back of her mind! We are very happy and relieved that everything went well, and that she will be back on the road with us soon. Give Guernica some love❤️”

Thundermother‘s third and self-titled album finished at #6 on the Sleaze Roxx’s Top Ten Albums of 2018 to which Sleaze Roxx stated: “Normally, losing your lead vocalist along with your three other bandmates would prove to be the end for just about any group and the lone remaining band member. However, Thundermother founder and lead guitarist Filippa Nässil is no ordinary woman. The guitarist didn’t let the departure of her four bandmates keep her down. Not only did Nässil replace her former bandmates in record time, Thundermother‘s third and self-titled studio album is the band’s best album to date. New frontwoman Guernica Mancini had some big shoes to fill with Irish singer Clare Cunningham‘s departure but was able to step up and deliver the AC/DC type gritty vocals that Thundermother seem to strive for. While Thundermother may not have gained much traction yet in North America, they seem to be doing quite well in Europe playing on many big festivals and being on quite a few tours with different bands. Thundermother sees the band returning closer to its AC/DC roots along the line of the debut album Rock ‘N’ Roll Disaster rather than the sophomore album Road Fever but with more variety including the ballad “Fire In The Water.””
