Thumper Punk Turns 10!

By in News | 5 Comments

I’d just like to send out a special congratulations to David who runs Thumper Punk for reaching the 10 year milestone. I remember hooking up with the label back near the beginning and during our last complete site overhaul. A lot of great punk stuff has come out of this label in the past 10 years some of which many of you probably didn’t know existed. Check out this special digital release featuring new recordings by some of the earliest Thumper Punk Records bands below via bandcamp. The release is also available through all digital networks and streaming sites.

OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: Thumper Punk Records is stoked to announce the digital release of its “Thumper Punk Records Turns 10” release, featuring new recordings form False Idle, ABSOLVED, The Hoax, and a never before released live recording of a new song from the WAY, an a live acoustic classic from The Kings Kids • 2005 – 2012. Previously available only as a flexi disc, this release commemorates the 10 year anniversary of the start of Thumper Punk Records, and includes songs from the first 5 bands that signed to the label.

Track listing:

1. False Idle – Turn the Page
3. The Hoax – My Mom Thinks I’m Cool
4. The WAY – Harry’s Song
5. The Kings Kids – The Upright Stand

Available from iTunes, Spotify, and for $3 from the TPR Bandcamp site:

Post production processing and artwork by Sef Idle at Simpul Studio, Boise, Idaho.

I thought last year they were packing it in? Maybe that was even summer of 2017. I picked up a bunch of great albums for cheap as they were getting rid of everything. Are they planning on being around and sticking around now? Love the label! Really the only way for me to find fantastic punk in the style I like (rough around the edges).

TPR went on hiatus in January 2018, but resurfaced in August. I missed being involved with music and the friendships with the bands. Thanks for the kind words. We’re back with a focus on supporting the SoCal JCHC scene and a few of the historical TPR bands.

That’s great to hear! Thank you so much for the update! Does that return involve physical media or are all releases digital from now on? I’ve always been more of a physical media person.

Thanks for the kind words and support. We’ll be pressing CDs for bands to sell at shows, and through their webstores. I like physical media too, but my days of shipping CDs are over. SkyBurnsBlack has my remaining inventory of CDs.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
