“We wanted the album to be the perfect follow up to Butterfly, and yet the perfect way to lead us into our next album in the future,” explains lead vocalist Jacob Charlton. “We wanted it to have enough difference that people would be surprised, but that it would also allow us to keep branching out down the track. We never want to pigeon hole ourselves into a genre, that was never the point of Thornhill. We just want to be exactly who we want to be every single time.”
Before the release of their debut album, Thornhill – completed by guitarists Ethan McCann and Matt Van Duppen, bassist Nick Sjogren and drummer Ben Maida – have consistently commanded the Australian heavy space. With support slots alongside heavyweights including Northlane, Architects, Polaris, Parkway Drive, In Hearts Wake, Beartooth, Make Them Suffer and The Plot In You under their belt, The Dark Pool marks their next assault on the scene.
