Canadian based hard rock trio ‘Thunderor’ burst out with new single ‘How We Roll’, heralding the soon to be released album ‘Fire it Up’ which will be in the rock salute hands of fans by 18/02/22. Consisting of a 9-track 80’s inspired face melter rock tracks, drenched in cheeky adventure and clad in leather.The songs on the album are meant to inspire a life journey – an adventure with friends, motorcycles, romance, danger, and victory. I hope it will be a soundtrack for your adventures.Embodying the freedom and sense of exploration within the band’s debut single video, full of dirt roads, long-hair and tour vans, the band are taking it back to old-school raw production, boasting attitude, grit and head-banging drums.

Topping it off with a somewhat glam rock sound, ‘Thunderors’ showcase synth and iconic licks. Lead singer/ drummer, JJ Tartaglia, infuses his passion for motorcycles, one that has landed him a feature in Adventure Bike Rider, and turns it up to 100 for the visuals.

It’s not just the motorbikes for Tartaglia it’s the freedom they represent, his need for freedom surpassing the love for riding bikes and playing pinball (yes he really is the international flip pinball association player). The ethos of following happiness, even if it means dropping everything and leaving your life as you know it behind. “I quit my day job, freeing me to go on tours and chase my dreams. Now I’m writing music to inspire others to do the same with big hooks, sing-along choruses, and stadium worthy anthems.”

Band members JJ and Jonny Nesta may be recognisable to you from legendary band Skull Fist, founding international success amongst the company of Micheal Vescera and Larry Howe. These guys have graced the stages of Full Metal Cruise, and Wacken Open Air. Loving the wind in the metal locks of hair experience of driving and singing, Tartaglia chipped away on vocals, drums and keys, prior to recruiting guitarist Nesta and Oscar angel on bass. The full band forming in 2020, with a 28-show headline UK tour already in the works, which no doubt will be a floor-filler of headbanging, good times and classic rock tunes.
