RNZ Music is proud to present the new video from Auckland pop group Thomas Brothers. ‘Writing on the Wall’ is the third single from their album Together, which is out this Friday.

To celebrate the release of Together the four brothers are playing Festival One at Hamilton’s Mystery Creek this weekend.

The Thomas Brothers are Samuel (vocals, piano), Joshua (bass), Ben (drums) and Joseph (guitar). The brothers have been playing music together since before they could walk. The make music about love, family and togetherness.

The video for ‘Writing on the Wall’ was produced and edited by lead vocalist Samuel, and the band describe it as their “best video yet”. It features a stellar cast of well-known New Zealanders, including Charlize Theron’s stunt double Dayna Grant, who’s James' stunt double in the vid, and actor James Davies (Chase Randall, Black Power Ranger, Power Rangers Dino Charge).

‘Writing On The Wall’ is the third single from the Thomas Brothers’ sophomore album Together, which is out this Friday, January 24.

Recorded over four years, the album is truly a labour of love and a real family project. The boys’ sister Esther Ruth and their dad, both lend their musical talents to the record.

“For us, family is about being real, and so is our music. This album describes what we mean to each other, and the importance of unity. Like we kept saying when recording it, ‘You can go fast alone... or you can go far together!’,” Sam says.

‘Writing on the Wall’ is available on all digital platforms now.
