For the first time since 2013’s Desperate Ground, The Thermals have announced a new LP – they’re calling it We Disappear. Produced by Chris Walla in Portland and Seattle, the band released their first single today entitled “Hey You”. If Joel Plaskett and Sloan had a punk baby, you would end up with this scrappy tune.
Hutch Harris had this to say about the LP in a statement:
“Technology, love and death are the three obsessions of the record. Our privacy used to be so important to us and now everything has changed—we freely offer once private information about relationships and reveal everything about our day-to-day lives. We’re trying to preserve our life digitally so when we’re gone people won’t forget us. We’re using technology to become immortal. You can even set up Facebook and Twitter accounts to continue updating after you die! We Disappear is about how humans fight the inevitable.”
