UK Hard Rock Legends Thunder Find the Right Sound in the Studio with the Help of Bose L1 Model II Systems

Framingham, MA – London-based hard rock band Thunder launched their brand new album, Please Remain Seated, to critical acclaim in January, and they then toured nine UK venues from Cardiff to Glasgow via Birmingham and Manchester. The new album celebrates the band’s 30 anniversary, and revisits some of their finest songs, including “She’s So Fine” and “Low Life in High Places.” During the studio recording of the album, the band used Bose L1 Model II portable line arrays in order to get the right feel and sound in the studio.

Lead singer Danny Bowes is full of praise for the system: “We’ve used lots of equipment over the years, but none as impressive as the Bose L1 system. 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. Setup was easy, and the sound was instantly right. A few months later we played an acoustic show, and once again they were perfect. We’ve become huge fans and will use the L1 whenever possible. They are quite simply amazing!”

The acoustic show he mentions was the debut of their new album at Planet Rock Studios in London, and it is testament to the band’s faith in the Bose system that they felt confident in using the L1’s at such an important launch event.
