Ben Thompson has had a highly successful career as a professional drummer for the past ten years. He has played for the likes of Two Door Cinema Club, Phoneix and Gorgon City and has toured the globe several times— performing at a multitude of domestic and international festivals (Glastonbury, Reading and Leeds, Super Sonic & Bonaroo) and making many television appearances (Letterman, Jimmy Fallon, Conan O’Brien, Jools Holland).
Endorsing Vic Firth and Zildjian, Ben’s abilities are well honed, and he continues to be a pivotal part of Two Door Cinema Club’s success – the band’s 2013 album ‘Beacon’ reached No. 2 on the UK chart, went Top 20 stateside, and hit the top spot in Ireland. He has hosted clinics and performed at The London Drum and The UK Drum Shows.
