Thunder and Consolation was released in 1989 and is the fourth studio album of British rock band New Model Army. The self-produced album stands as a landmark in the New Model Army-catalogue, being their most successful album to date and reaching #20 in the UK albums chart. It also saw the band gaining new musical grounds as they adopted a more folky sound with the assistance of violinist Ed Alleyne-Johnson. It was produced by Tom Dowd and the band.
This was also the last album on which Jason 'Moose' Harris would play bass. He was subsequently replaced by Nelson on the band's next studio album, Impurity (1990).
The title of the album was taken from 17th century British Quaker, Edward Burrough, whose collected works, which were posthumously released in 1663, were entitled The Memorable Works of a Son of Thunder and Consolation.
