THE THERMALS, just in case you didn’t know, are a three-piece indie punk band from Portland, Oregon. They’ve been doing their thing for over ten years now, but Time certainly hasn’t dulled their ability to write raucous, punk-edged songs of substance .
A new album, ‘Desperate Ground’ is scheduled for release through the amazing Saddle Creek label on 15th April. I’ve not heard it yet, but believe it to be brilliantly sick and twisted – dark and yet fun! Full of energy, lyrically, it’s a brash and irresponsible ode to human violence, a black celebration of the inevitability of war and death.
From the album comes the following track, ‘Born To Kill,‘ an unapologetic ode to a nation of killers.
I don’t think I need say any more!
