All-female rock quartet Thunderpussy announced an expansive national summer headlining tour along with Canadian rock outfit Black Pistol Fire.
The tour kicks off on 12 July in Santa Fe, New Mexico, with stops in Brooklyn, Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia, Los Angeles and two dates in Canada.
The band also shared a live video for their raucous cover of Jefferson Airplane’s ‘Somebody to Love’ in anticipation of the upcoming summer shows.
Since releasing their self-titled debut album last year, Thunderpussy has been making waves for the electric live shows that channels the gritty energy of classic rock, with powerful vocals and a punk spirit.
One of their biggest fans, Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready, became their biggest advocate and even lent guitar and production to their debut album.
“He’s become such an incredible friend,” vocalist Molly Sides told uDiscoverMusic last year. “And I would say family. One thing that I’ve definitely learned from Mike is don’t overthink things and it’s more about the feeling than the part.”
The Seattle-based band’s debut has garnered rave reviews with NPR writing, “Thunderpussy is everything you want in rock – raw, spontaneous, bombastic, outrageous – and they’ve got the look, songs, musicianship and dynamic live show to take your breath away”.
