Hard began in the studio.
In order to attempt to capture the lightning-in-a-bottle magic of their shows, the Thumpiest of all Thump experiences, they tracked live as a full band, and then sprinkled further funk on top. It’s stuffed full of bangers, as per usual.
“We set out to seek what would be the natural evolution of our sound,” says Lucas Tamaren of the new album. “It showcases our development as a live band as well as our members’ individual growth as producers in their own right.”
The new record, and the major international tour they’re undertaking to promote it, are doors opening to all new potential disciples: an entry point into the fantastic, imaginative worlds Thumpasaurus has created for themselves and their listeners. To all of their audience past, present and future… Let there be THUMP.

In the beginning there was Thump… something strange and funky condensing out of the primordial ooze. Then: underground house parties and backyard raves, stuff of legend still whispered about in Los Angeles. And now: the Space Barn blasts off, and Thumpasaurus is ready to engage a new frontier in the Thumpaverse.
The inspired members of Thumpasaurus—Lucas Tamaren (vocals, guitar), Henry Was (drums, production), Logan Kane (bass), Henry Solomon (saxophone), Paul Cornish (keys), and Ben Benjamin (visuals/pancakes)—have been honing their craft and gaining a loyal cult for their experimental shows since they first got together 2015.
Through their relentless energy, creativity, and a touch of the absurd, Thumpasaurus tries to point towards our inner realities and teach us how to conjure joy out of thin air.
