The ARIA-nominated Thornhill absolutely took control of 2022 following the release of their latest album Heroine. With stage shows that just stepped the fvck up from their metalcore days, the outfit honed in on their prog side, scoring fantastic opportunities in the process and opening a new door for new fans to start getting #Horny4Thorny too.

BEST MUSIC VIDEO OF 2022?
Void of Vision‘s ‘INTO THE DARK’ is definitely one of my favourite videos of this year. Jack [Bergin] had been talking about “THE” shot of the black feathers falling for a long time and it turned out insanely cinematic paired with the costuming.
FAVOURITE GIG YOU PLAYED THIS YEAR
New York City on the Erra tour was easily the best show we’ve ever played in another country and we couldn’t be more thankful for the reception we received.
BIGGEST WTF OR WHOLESOME MOMENT FOR YOUR BAND
Seeing our videos and promos projected onto the sides of buildings was a crazy experience, a very wholesome moment seeing all our hard work up for the world to see.
ANY SNEAK PEEKS OF YOUR 2023 PLANS FOR FANS?
Hopefully heading to Europe more than once next year to make up for lost time, so euro fans get ya eyeliner ready.
BEST ADVICE GOING INTO 2023?
