News: Thornhill release live video for ‘The Hellfire Club’

Melbourne’s THORNHILL have had a huge year, with no plans on slowing down anytime soon.

Their epic sophomore full-length record Heroine stormed up the charts debuting at #3 on the ARIA Album Chart. Not only that, it debuted at #1 on the Australian album chart and has had more than 8.5 million streams to date. Critics and fans have been praising the record across the globe.

In July, they played their biggest Australian headline shows to date slapping sold out signs on most dates along the way.The band have just returned home from their North American tour with ERRA and Alpha Wolf which also saw them play their first US headline shows on the east coast.

While currently on the road with The Butterfly Effect and Caligula’s HorseThornhill have shared a live video for The Hellfire Club, taken from their recent US headline show in West Palm Beach, FL. 

Thornhill will also be performing at the Good Things Festival headlined by Bring Me The Horizon in December.


Close your eyes and hear any of its songs, and Thornhill’s epic sophomore full-length will transport its listener’s imagination to scenes of classic Hollywood.

Riding a creative wave driven by an affection for the glam and charm of this style, Thornhill’s Jacob Charlton (vocals/lyrics) and Ethan McCann (guitar/production) birthed Heroine – a vivid anthology of stories set to a dynamic, cinema-inspired score.

Listeners will no doubt hear the moody and anthemic ‘Varsity Hearts’ and picture scenes from She’s All That, and be transported into the world of James Bond amid the spy-like breakdowns of ‘Casanova’. Elsewhere, the album references the sounds and styles of some of Hollywood’s most classic titles like Singing In The Rain,  American Beauty and Baz Luhrmann’s epic Romeo & Juliet.

Propped up against their acclaimed 2019 debut album The Dark Pool, there’s a profound new sense of clarity, vision and intention to be heard on Heroine. Where The Dark Pool touched fans with its mix of crushing riffage and atmospheric metalcore, this record finds 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. At the same time harking to flavours of modern metalcore, Thornhill ultimately want to showcase what can be made of heavy and rock music when there are no borders. 

Levelling up on the astounding success of their debut, Thornhill ultimately prove their vision and creativity stretches well beyond the small walls of metalcore on their new record. Like the films that inspired it, Heroine is poised to go down as a tasteful, classic piece of art, enjoying repeat-listen after repeat-listen for years to come.
