More Thornhill More Thornhill

Thornhill just performed at Good Things Festival, but they're not done gifting us with good things just yet.

The Views From The Sun group are part of the Soundbox 2022 program presented by Always Live Victoria, a behind-the-scenes offering of a digital sound studio.

From 4 pm tomorrow, Thornhill will be at the Arts Centre Melbourne Forecourt. "We will be performing Heroine in its entirety and streaming live on Twitch with a Q&A to follow," the band wrote on social media. Download the complete Soundbox program here.

Heroine was nominated for a Best Hard Rock/Heavy Album ARIA Award alongside Northlane with Obsidian, Shihad's Old Gods, Real Rare Whale by Dune Rats, and The Chats with Get Fucked. The latter group ultimately took the award home.

Thornhill performed on Like A Version earlier this year and finally put the Muse comparisons to bed, confirming, yes, the influence is there; so what? 

They offered the clue "this is going to suck" about their cover of Supermassive Black Hole, which confused presenter Bryce slightly. This Muse track was in the first Twilight movie during the iconic baseball scene; that film has a phenomenal soundtrack, and this was a great song choice.

Putting their spin with a little breakdown-style riff in the middle, guitarist Ethan McCann rips into a banging guitar solo. Vocalist Jacob Charlton smashes the vocals from start to finish, and overall the boys completely hit it out of the park.

We wrote about Heroine upon its release, "Heroine is a masterful and bold move from Thornhill, with more time and devotion to crafting a living breathing atmosphere than breakdowns. This record is a breath of fresh air for the Australian heavy music scene and will no doubt catapult them to superstardom."
