TC1 - More Info - Please Read To The Bottom - It's Important

Also Important: We need your postal address so we can send you the physical benefits that come with your membership. If/when you sign up, it's important that you "opt in" to receive your membership benefits via mail (i.e. post). If you "opt out", we won't get your address, and you won't get your goodies.

We can see your membership account in Patreon but we can't edit it, so it’s down to you. If you need to amend your membership details and preferences after sign up, there's a handy link to your account settings at the bottom of all emails you receive from Thunder Channel via Patreon.

The Benefits

Through your Early Access benefit, you'll hear all the official Thunder news first, and as a result you'll get priority access to pre-sales on new releases, show tickets, competitions and special events. In some cases the music releases may be limited edition, so TC members will get the edge over non members.

The Music Downloads will be material from our audio archive. These will be rare, live, deleted tunes, along with previously unreleased gems. All in MP3 format.

Live Chats will take place using Discord (it's free and works on your smartphone, tablet or computer). Chats will happen at regular intervals throughout the year. You'll be able to be a part of the sessions with us, and take advantage of your chance to ask "almost anything" (please keep it clean, we embarrass easily). You'll also get to suggest new ideas, member benefits, and generally help us to shape Thunder Channel. It's your club as much as ours, so we'll be asking for your feedback!

Your TC Year One enamel pin badge will be sent to you after 3 months of continuous membership. Then after 12 months of continuous membership, you'll receive a different colour badge, like the old days (with Year Two on it) and so on. All TC members get the same badge (i.e. there is not a different badge for each level). Continuous membership is the only way to get TC badges. They can't be purchased.

All members will be sent a unique one time promo code when they sign up, which will get you a stonking 50% off almost everything on sale at Thunder Online Shop (excludes P&P, VIP tickets & presentation discs). You'll receive another one for 25% off at Thunder Retro Store. There's no minimum or maximum spend amount on either, and they don't expire! Both promo codes will work just the once, but if you use them well you could save yourself some serious ££.

Lens updates are "Thunder on the go" clips and photos, which will be sent to members when we're out and about, on tour and in the studio. Imagine, a random picture or video from Thunder arriving out of the blue! Lens content is just for fun, and only lasts 24 hours, so it won't bung up your smartphone and we promise to keep our clothes on. It goes without saying that you'll need a smartphone to enjoy this particular benefit.

Your signed band photo will be sent to you straight after you sign up.

Important Financial Info - Please Read Before You Sign Up

If you sign up, we will be very happy, and our platform Patreon will charge for your selected membership fee straight away (+ tax*) for a month's membership, which will unlock all your benefits. You'll be charged per month thereafter on the 1st day of each month. If you like to get your full money's worth, you should sign up on the first day of the month. If you decide later that you wish to cancel your membership, we will of course cry, but you can do so at any time. To get your full membership benefit, make sure you cancel close to the end of the month, as Patreon do not offer part refunds.

* Patreon charge the tax, as they are obliged to do so by law. It is then paid to the government, not us.

TC2 - More Info - Please Read To The Bottom - It's Important

Also Important: We need your postal address so we can send you the physical benefits that come with your membership.

The Benefits

TC2 members get access to live video streams with the band, in the Thunder "video room". Examples of the activities are:- band member master classes, real time Q&As, Quizzes (with all kinds of prizes). In some cases you may be invited to be on screen with us (so please look good). More and more live streamed activities will be added as time goes by. If we get enough TC2 members, we'll be able to add live streamed performances too. Thunder Channel finally comes to life in the 21st century!

Killer Ticket access means just that. When we tour, we'll reserve an allocation of the best seats for TC2 members to buy before anyone else gets a look at them.

The Annual Mystery Gift will be sent to TC2 members after every 12 months of continuous membership (along with your enamel pin badge), as a thank you for your continued support. Like the badge, it will be different each year. We don't know what it is yet, so it's a mystery, even to us! Rest assured it will be both Thunder-mongous and splendid..

TC2 members get unlimited access to all Thunder Channel posts, past and present, including our video archive. We've uploaded some clips in order to launch, but we have loads more in the works. They'll be added as they're ready, and and members will be notified each time a new one goes up.

About Thunder Channel

Thunder Channel - Yes it's back!

Why Now?

You may or may not have heard of our old Fan Club, Thunder Channel. It started when we did, back in 1989, and it became massive very quickly. It was hugely successful, and a great many fans over the years have told us how much they loved being a member. Sadly, we had to close it down in 2000, when we took our first hiatus.

We've been thinking for ages about launching a new version of Thunder Channel "for the modern age", but we know from before that it takes a lot of thought, commitment and money to do it well. We simply haven't had the time to get into it until now. We've been beavering away on this for ages, and think we've got a tasty new version that you'll like. One we can deliver for you on all levels, not just now when it's quiet, but well into the future.
If you haven't lost the will to live already, please read on..

What Is Thunder Channel?

We've chosen Patreon as our membership platform, and set up a new modern version of Thunder Channel for Thunder fans to become members (Patreon calls them "Patrons"). Thunder Patrons are Thunder Channel Members by another name, and just like it used to be, membership comes with benefits.

We've created the club to bring you stuff we think you'll like, mixing the technology of today with elements of the traditional old school stuff.
The idea is that you pay for membership to it via a monthly fee. Unlike the old days, where it was a single "one size fits all" affair, membership benefits for the new Thunder Channel are split across different levels. You get your own membership login, so you're in complete control of your membership benefits, based on how much you want to pay (you can opt to pay the equivalent of 1.5 cups of coffee per month for Level One membership, or 3 cups per month for Level Two). So joining up will mean you'll get loads of Thunder joy, and take in less caffeine too. Win win.

OK I Like The Idea, But What Do I Get?

There are member benefits galore, and they’re all listed above.

There's also a Thunder Channel "Members Only" area on both the band owned stores where there are exclusive items both for sale and for free, and only for TC members.

We hope you’ll want to sign up, and we’ll be encouraging you to tell us what you want from Thunder Channel via polls, live chats and Q&As (there will be loads of these).
We want it to be a community rather than just a club, so by telling us what you think, you'll be helping us to shape it going forwards.

If and when you sign up, please remember to enter your postal address (and don't "opt out" of receiving mail form us) so we can send you the physical items that come with your membership.

We're very excited about this new Thunder Channel, and it's going to be a major part of what we do in the future. Join Thunder Channel, and get some more Thunder in your life.

You know it makes sense!

Thanks

Ben, Chris, Danny, Harry & Luke
