LIGHTNING BOLT

Lightning Bolt

Sonic Citadel

    For their seventh full length, ‘Sonic Citadel’, Brians Gibson and Chippendale have done the daring, stripping away some of the distortion mask to reveal the naked pop forms as never before.

    Throughout their 25-year history Lightning Bolt have toured the world, performing at Coachella, ATP, Festivals, Pitchfork Music Festival, Austin Psych Fest and FYF Fest, to name a few.

    Brian Chippendale has collaborated with Björk, Boredoms, Andrew W.K. and Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry. Brian’s comics are published with Drawn & Quarterly and Picturebox. Brian is also in Black Pus.

    Brian Gibson’s game Thumper, produced by his own company Drool, was awarded the 2019 Apple Design Award, was on Gamespot, Hardcore Gamer and IDN’s Best Of 2016 lists and won countless other awards.

    STAFF COMMENTS

    Barry says: With the grinding guitars and machinated percussive blasts, Lightning Bolt have always proved an intimating presence. 'Sonic Citadel' sees them embracing more of the rapid-fire punk aesthetic than their more dirgy stoner sludge, and is all the better for the glimmers of melody and old-school thrash-punk fire within.

    Lightning Bolt

    Wonderful Rainbow

      For the 25th Anniversary of Lightning Bolt, Thrill Jockey reissue Lightning Bolt’s pivotal album ‘Wonderful Rainbow’, originally released in 2003 on Load Records. Lightning Bolt will be releasing a new album later this year.

      Legendary band Lightning Bolt’s ‘Wonderful Rainbow’ is one of the most quintessential albums to come from the underground in the last 20 years. Included in lists like Pitchfork’s 200 Top Albums Of The 2000s and the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die, Lightning Bolt’s seminal record solidified their place as pillars of the underground community.

      ‘Wonderful Rainbow’ saw the duo of Brian Chippendale (drums/vocals) and Brian Gibson (bass) being compared to the likes of Slayer, Ornette Coleman and early Boredoms and captured the bristling, immeasurable energy of their mythical live shows, which continue to astonish audiences today.

      Throughout their 25 year history Lightning Bolt have toured the world, performing at Coachella, ATP Festivals, Pitchfork Music Festival, Austin Psych Fest and FYF Fest to name a few.

      Brian Chippendale releases music on Thrill Jockey with his solo project Black Pus, has collaborated with Björk, Boredoms, Andrew W.K. and Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry and has published several books of his art through Drawn & Quarterly and Picturebox.

      In 2017, Brian Gibson developed the video game ‘Thumper’ with his own company, Drool.

      ‘Wonderful Rainbow’ is released for the first time ever with the full artwork as initially conceived by Lightning Bolt in 2003. Front and back artwork familiar to fans is still there but now in a full wrap, only previously available in the very early screenprinted version. This wrap has full-colour artwork on the inside, originally only available as a small insert. The LP jacket itself is never before released artwork created at the time of the album. All artwork has been created by Brian Chippendale.

      Multi-million selling rock legends Pearl Jam are back with the release of their wildly anticipated tenth studio album, ‘Lightning Bolt’.

      Produced by Brendan O’Brien, ‘Lightning Bolt’ marks Pearl Jam’s first studio album since the highly acclaimed ‘Backspacer’, which was released nearly four years ago in September 2009.
