Regina based progressive rock trio Black Thunder return to Lethbridge to rock the Slice again with the Supervoid, Feb. 18.
They released their most recent CD “III” last July and are already working on new music.
“We’re just starting a new album. We’ve been playing these songs for a while now so I need to play something new,” said guitarist Tony Frank, who has been playing with drummer Neil Lutz since 2009. bassist Dustin Wiebe joined a few years later.
“We toured on it and sold a few copies, so I’m happy with it. People seem to like it, so I think it’s doing okay,” said Frank, taking a quick break from his day job building commercial doors and windows.
“ Our drummer just got a job a a brewery, so we get discounts on booze and our bass player works in scaffolding,” Frank said, adding they need to work around touring schedules, recording, rehearsing and songwriting around day jobs.
“We practice in the basement where there are a lot of folk and acoustic shows, so often security form the show upstairs will come down and tell us to turn down, which is disappointing when you get into the zone. But you can’t get mad about these things,” he said.
“We loving doing this and making music, so we always make time for it. So we make it work,” he continued.
