big news! we’ve signed with saddle creek and we have a new record!

DG cover

The Thermals have a new record!  The title is Desperate Ground.  It was produced by John Agnello (Dinosaur Jr., Sonic Youth.)  It’s a loud, fast and joyously violent thrill ride.  The Thermals are proud to announce this amazing new LP will be released April 16th, 2013 by the fabulous Saddle Creek record label.  Saddle Creek and The Thermals have been bros for years, and their new partnership is quite fitting.  The Thermals have toured with Cursive, Hutch and Kathy put on the very first Bright Eyes show in Portland, and The Faint used to crash on Hutch’s floor.

1. Born To Kill
2. You Will Be Free
3. The Sunset
4. I Go Alone
5. The Sword By My Side
6. You Will Find Me
7. Faces Stay With Me
