AFM Records has announced the signing of Thundermother
High Voltage Rock 'n' Roll – Thundermother from Stockholm are the breathing and living embodiment of rock ‘n’ roll. Founded in 2009 by guitar-heroine Filippa Nässil, the band started to rise steeply on the international stage after singer extraordinaire, Guernica Mancini, joined two years ago. With her blues-soaked voice that has invited comparison to several classic queens of rock music, these Swedish ladies have hit the jackpot. Driven by the hard-hitting pounding of drummer Emlee Johansson, these heavy rocking girls are sticking it to anyone claiming that rock ‘n’ roll is a male domain.
Front woman Guernica Mancini states: “On stage we are musicians - no matter if man or woman.”
Touring relentlessly and with three albums under their belt, Thundermother are currently working on their highly anticipated fourth album, but before will prove its live qualities once more when supporting legendary Aussie rockers Rose Tattoo on their tour in March.
Jochen Richert (CEO AFM Records): “Thundermother – rock ‘n’ roll – this is the slogan we will carry out to the world, and it’s one that fits like a glove. Rarely the entire team has been so convinced that we have a very special band here! We’re glad to be the new label home for the Swedish riff Valkyries. Thundermother have huge potential, not only in the rock world but even to reach way beyond that into mainstream. We will work hard in all areas to establish the association Thundermother - rock ‘n’ roll very quickly.”
Michael Thiesen und Eric Burton (Thundermother Mgmt): “We’re happy that we found a strong label partner in AFM, who entirely understand the ideas of the Thundermother team, and are willing to go new, innovative ways when it comes to marketing. Thundermother right now are the hottest female rock act, so we have high goals and are looking forward to the collaboration with AFM Records.”
