It's been quite some time since we last checked in with one of our favorite emerging acts of 2008. Let's touch base with the Canadian dynamo known as Thunderheist.

1. Their en flambe track, Jerk It, is used in the Darren Aronofsky directed, awards-buzzing flick, The Wrestler, starring Mickey Rourke and Marisa Tomei.

2. They are shooting a new video this weekend. No word on the appearance of chickens in said footage.

3. New tracks! Sweet 16 and Whatever U Need are streaming on their
Space, as well as an Eli Escobar remix of Sweet 16.

4. Their album is coming out on March 31, 2009.

5. They're playing Santos Party House on January 15.

How does that strike your fancy? We likey.
