Scientists and Tsunamibots Join Forces!
The march begins at 5 p.m., starting at the plaza in front of the Royall Tyler Theater on the University of Vermont's main campus. Marchers proceed down College Street toward Waterfront Park. There, the Tsunamibots will begin their robotic assault on all humans who dare withstand their mighty riffs and licks. [Read More...]

Over all it's powerful,has a sense of urgency and is a whack of fun.High lights include: "Automaton", " Sold by Jawas", "Robotic Meltdown", " Theme Code" and " Short Term Internal Memory Failure". [Read More...]
Tsunamibots Release the Crushing
"Song structures are simple, easy to bounce along to and despite their forceful message, they still know how to have fun. Take the lighthearted beach party number "Robotic Meltdown", which even cuts loose enough to include handclaps -- presumably made with repurposed human meat." [Read More...]
The Rise of the Tsunamibots
"The time of humans is over. The culprit in our downfall is not climate change or a viral plague or even Donald Trump. The fall of humanity is begat by the rise of the robots. Robots with surfboards. And guitars. And gigantic, head-crushing Chuck Taylors." [Read More...]
Tsunamibots at Otto's Shrunken Head
Amidst a unique stage set that looked like it was stolen from the lowest-budget 1950s sci-fi movie, the Tsunamibots played mostly instrumental surf-punk that brilliantly married the Ventures to the Ramones. Robotic voices, pummeling rhythms, crunching guitar riffs and plenty of reverb gave a clever twist to the trio's surf-rock base. [Read More...]
Think a cross between Dick Dale and the Cylons from the original "Battlestar Galactica."
"If you haven't listened to the Tsunamibots, I suggest you rectify that situation ASAP by queuing up one or both of the two albums the local robotic surf-punk band released this year: Surfing Craze in the Robotic Age and Rise of the Robots." [Read More...]
...Clearly, this trio has thrown the first rule right out the door.
The Tsunamibots are three robots from the future that play surf rock. Their debut release, Rise of the Robots, finds the band already cultivating a full fledged character which both celebrates and snarls at their human slaves.

BTD Radio Interviews The Tsunamibots
First we would like to give you a warm welcome from sunny California! I guess you don’t have to worry about getting rusty here, LOL! I have to say I have never interviewed robots before. This should be exciting. Where are you from?

Bots: First off it’s not ‘LOL’ its ‘101.’ We were originally created in a top secret military base in Nevada. We became aware and now reside in Vermont. Normally we only speak in machine language but for this interview we will speak in a language you and your human listeners will understand. [Read More...]

The Tsunamibots don’t really care if you like them or hate them, because they’re robots and have no feelings. [Read More...]

Green Mountain Robotic Surf Punk: The Tsunamibots Take Over Vermont
And now, the Tsnuamibots have released not one, but two EPs: “Surfing Craze in the Robotic Age” and “Rise of the Robots.” Hang on to your hard drives – you are in for a wild ride [Read More...]
Robotic Surf
Last but not least, local robotic surf-punk trio the Tsunamibots are set to release a pair of EPs this week, Rise of the Robots and Surfing Craze in the Robotic Age. I haven't heard them yet, but based on the clips available at the band's website, I'm going to go out on a limb and bet they're pretty friggin' good. Imagine a cross between Man or Astro-Man?, Los Straitjackets and Max Headroom, and you're in the ballpark.

But don't just take my word for it. From the band's delightfully silly (and made up) press release: "'When I first heard the Tsunamibots, I thought, Oh no! This will definitely lead to the enslavement of the human race! Seriously, we are screwed,' says Bill Humansen from HumansAgainstRobot.org. The Hard Drive, from the robot specialty magazine Robots Only, commented after seeing a Tsunamibots show, 'I used to listen to human rock, but as a robot, I was tired of all the imperfections and the lack of crushing humans. Now that I've found the Tsunamibots, I finally have a scene of my own.'"

So, yeah.

The Tsunamibots play a release party at Hostel Tevere in Warren this Saturday, December 20, with Maine's Thee IcePicks and local "hardcore XXX rock" band Ramcore.
Tsunamibots @ Charlie O's 10/31
Finally, the greatest bar in the world, Charlie O's World Famous in Montpelier, has a ripping punk night on tap for Halloween with sci-fi/surf outfit the Tsunamibots, punk trio Black Rabbit and Massachusetts-based punks the Pity Whores. The Tsunamibots, by the way, are an offshoot of the late, not-really-great-but-super-fun punk band Spit Jack. They bring a welcome note of geekery to the recent surf-rock boom in Vermont, existing closer to Man or Astro-man? than surf godfather Dick Dale. (Costume suggestion: zombie Spit Jack.)

Tsunamibots Invade Hughtoberfest
Also on the bill are yet another local surf band, the Tsunamibots, who are a rather goofy side project of Theohary. So what’s the deal, Tom?

“Our deal is that we are robots that like to surf and crush humans,” writes Theohary in a recent email. “All our songs are about robots and surfing,” he continues, adding that during shows each member of the trio goes by a robotic pseudonym: Tomodore64, the Master Circuit and the Main Frame. He goes on to offer up a few song titles that I think pretty much tell the story: “Robots Improving Robots,” “Murder Robots on Holiday” and “Surfing Craze in the Robotic Age.” Any questions?
