The Thermals, 2012
The Thermals

This press release just came:

The Thermals have recently finished recording their sixth LP (title and label TBA) with John Agnello (Dinosaur Jr., Sonic Youth, Hold Steady) at Water Music in Hoboken, NJ. Mixing was completed October 28th, just hours before Superstorm Sandy hit the east coast.

The Thermals hope to have the new record released in early spring of 2013, and will be making (m)an(y) appearance(s) at SXSW in March. Almost two and a half years have passed since their last record, Personal Life (Kill Rock Stars, 2010) came out. But as David Lynch told Louis C.K. in his three rules for show business, "You gotta go away to come back".

The Thermals describe the upcoming album as "Everything Thermals fans know and love about this band. It's like a cross between two of our best-known and -loved records, More Parts Per Million (Sub Pop, 2003) and The Body, The Blood, The Machine (Sub Pop, 2006.) It's loud, fast, incredibly scary and undeniably catchy."
Woo hoo!

This good news of course comes not long after really bad news related to the Themals, as their ex-bandmate Joel Burrows passed away not long after they finished the new recording.

John's a cool dude. I always see him at my local watering hole in Hoboke - his selections on the jukebox have included: Minor Threat, Bad Brains, Minutemen and Misfits.
