Thundamentals are ready to celebrate ten years of success since the release of their self-titled debut album. To celebrate, the Blue Mountains trio have announced a colossal anniversary tour kicking off in March.
“The biggest kind of wave around that whole thing is people hitting us up and being like I remember when you played with three people in the crowd in Katoomba and now look at you guys. And moments like that are really beautiful.”
“I was with my brother and sister in-law and there two little kids on the countdown so we were kind of listening all together and the numbers came down and our song wasn’t played yet and just to see the kids get so excited was probably the best thing about it and when it came in at 8 they just ran around and danced and screaming and that was a really cool moment, kind of like Christmas.”
Thundamentals is not only a band, but a family. Jeswon spoke about the unique vibe and connection between the band members:
“I always felt like we had a special connection with the band and for some reason some people have not recognised that yet but I have felt that in my heart. We did have something special happen and I felt like that now that its kind of like we are nationally known it feels great. I just feel so lucky.”
Following their accolades and commercial success, it is Thundamentals’ ongoing efforts to spread love and inspire a positive change in their own community that has endeared them to their legions of fans. This includes quietly raising tens of thousands of dollars through their Got Love Initiative on behalf of the Asylum Seekers Centre in Newtown and the The National Centre of Indigenous Excellence.
