Thunder Rolls into the Studio

UK hard-rock lifers hit the studio and the stage with Bose.

London, UK (May 10, 2019)—UK metal act Thunder launched its latest album,  Please Remain Seated, in January, having recorded much of it in the studio while using Bose L1 Model II portable line arrays in order to get the feel and sound the band was looking for.

“For our latest album, we wanted a live feel in the studio and decided to try four L1 systems, along with a ToneMatch mixer audio engine and B1 [bass module] for each,” explained lead singer Danny Bowes. “Setup was easy, and the sound was instantly right.”

Soon the band was recording the album, which looks back at the band’s three-decade career with new renditions of fan favorites like “She’s So Fine” and “Low Life in High Places.”

“A few months later we played an acoustic show, and once again, they were perfect,” Bowes continued, talking in reference to the L1s. The acoustic show was in fact the album’s launch, at Planet Rock Studios in London. That was soon followed by a nine-date UK tour supporting the record. “We’ve become huge fans and will use the L1 whenever possible,” he added.
