Description

Australian metal outfit Thornhill proved their musical confidence and diversity earlier this year with the release of their sophomore album Heroine, an album that defied the traditional safety first approach of second albums and instead veered into new sonic territory for the band.
Where debut album The Dark Pool touched fans with its mix of crushing riffage and atmospheric metalcore, Heroine saw Thornhill flexing their skills in the alternative and rock worlds, referencing a tapestry of sounds from the likes of Smashing Pumpkins and Red Hot Chili Peppers, to Silverchair and Deftones.
In two weeks fans will get the opportunity to hear some of that new album live when Thornhill jumps aboard the Good Things Festival train, with stops in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.
HEAVY caught up with frontman Jacob Charlton to get more information.
"I'm really keen dude," he enthused. "It's a big, big honour for us for sure. I can't wait to play. It's reminiscent of Soundwave and that's the first festival I had ever gone to, I think I was only 13 or 14 and it was a big deal for me so I'm really keen."
With Good Things taking in three states over consecutive days it almost becomes a war of attrition for the bands performing on the entire run, with Charlton admitting it almost becomes like hard work.
"It's definitely gonna be full on doing back to back to back," he smiled, "especially with my hay fever at the moment being outside the whole time is gonna kill me. Sometimes it's good because you get in the rhythm of it and shake the fear off a little bit. It will be fun."
In the full interview, Jacob talks more about what we can expect from Thornhill's shows, the high number of Australian bands on bill and what that means for Australian music as a whole, the response to Heroine and if the fans appreciated Thornhill's experimentation, writing a cohesive set list that allows the band to perform music from both releases, plans for the festive season and more.
