This summer, an ancient text emerges... From a forgotten time... When the Thumpasaurus roamed the Earth...

THE DEBUT ALBUM FROM THUMPASAURUS

This is not a drill!! Only 500 copies of this limited edition vinyl of The Book of Thump have been printed. This will be an important collector's item for all followers of the Thump.

To celebrate the album release, this Kickstarter will serve as a preorder where you can not only buy the LP but other Thumpy rewards exclusive to the campaign.

ON JULY 24TH: Thumpasaurus will celebrate the album release in Los Angeles with a headlining, ALL AGES show at the Troubadour! Tickets are available now. 

**** Pledges above $10 will get you a free SPACE BARN MEMBERSHIP PIN, available only in-person at the show and symbolic of your induction into the WAY OF THE THUMP. *****

WHY PRE-ORDER? 

This is a limited-edition pressing. Pre-ordering will guarantee you a copy as well as allowing you access to a delightful range of Thumpy items. You will be remembered in time as an early contributor to the spread of the Thump across the universe. 

WHAT IS THE BOOK OF THUMP? 

In the beginning there was Thump: the primordial groove of the Universe. Thump thumped its way through all things. In the beginning groove was harmony and harmony was groove - and it was good.

Long before the age of humans, the Thumpasaurus roamed the Earth, serving the cosmos as the teachers of the Thump. The Thump traversed all beings, and the Thumpasaurus helped distribute its secret wisdom to all sentient and non-sentient creatures.

As time passed and the Earth fluctuated between periods of great peace and great unrest, the Thumpasaurus became a threat to growing forces of evil, who - fueled by motivations of digital thought curation - sought to eliminate the Thumpasaurus.

To save the species and protect the goodness of the Universe, the Thumpasaurus fled the earth to the outer reaches of spacetime - though they swore to return as harbingers of the age of reawakening.

In their last gift to consciousness, the Thumpasaurus wrote the secrets of the Thump in a manuscript of truth and buried it in a sacredly secret location, in the hope that the knowledge of the Thump would survive and benefit future generations.

As buildings turned to sand, the ancient memory of the Thumpasaurus turned to dust and with them disappeared the philosophy of Thump.

Your quest is to find and restore Thump to this cruel and unforgiving modern world.
