Canadian electro group make debut

Big news in Canada, electro duo Thunderheist are set to storm the UK with a spectacular live date planned.

Could 2009 be the year electro breaks? With Ladyhawke re-issuing a chart bound 'Paris Is Burning' and Little Boots topping talent lists across the nation this may be the year that synths replace guitars as the hip kid's weapon of choice.

Thunderheist are already massive in their native Canada. The Crystal Castles its not a pain to listen to, the group's hit 'Jerk It' was featured prominently in the film 'The Wrestler giving the group massive exposure.

With their debut album set to drop soon, Thunderheist are already the name to drop in electro circles. Packed to the brim with dynamite dancefloor anthems, the album is due to be released on March 31st.

In an interview with the BBC the band described their dynamic as "we're completely different people - now we've learned to accept each other's differences. It's like a family now. He's the big brother I never really wanted but I got him and I'm the little sister he never wanted."

Thunderheist will play the following UK tour dates:

24 London Lexington
