If you want energy, Thira has definitely got plenty of it- not to mention: drive, enthusiasm, questionable morals, and a killer sense humor amongst theese four boys from Minneapolis Minnesota. In case you missed it, they played this weekend at Mary Jane’s tap house, and I was lucky enough to sit down with them afterwards, which was enlightening to say the least!
Front man Kayden explained that he draws inspiration and learns from listening to Clutch albums, that they are “like the mom’s home cooked meals of music”. Coz, Kipp, and Digg added that in between shows they ‘cleanse their pallet’ by listening to anything other then metal, so they can continue to have that passion and value in their music.
They also shared with me that they will usually listen the music of the bands they play with before shows so they can connect with them better, and how much they love being able to have a ‘larger than life’ presence on stage-then be approachable and real with people off stage.
This metal foursome bring a post apocalyptic, hardcore steam punk image as a visual compliment to their music, choosing this image because they wanted to SHOW their audience how they FEEL while they are on stage performing- and I gotta say, they are KILLING IT.
Unfortunately Thira won’t be back until this fall since they are booked solid touring the country through June ^_^ … you know, cause they’re THAT awesome… but you can check them out through their page! I’ll be posting pics in another album so check them out! I’ll be back next week, later loveys!
