The Skinny: Portland, OR-based trio The Thermals have premiered their new single “Thinking Of You” via YouTube, and also announced more dates of their upcoming headlining North American tour with Summer Cannibals. “Thinking Of You” is the third song released off their forthcoming album We Disappear, which will be released on March 25th, 2016 via Saddle Creek.
The Thermals’ headlining 2016 U.S. tour begins on April 16th in Spokane, WA and now includes west coast shows in Portland, Seattle and Los Angeles, adding to their previously announced east coast run with Summer Cannibals. The tour wraps on May 20th in San Diego, CA.
‘We Disappear’ was produced by Chris Walla (formerly of Death Cab For Cutie) and recorded in Portland at Kung Fu Bakery (The Shins, Tegan and Sara) and in Seattle, WA at The Hall of Justice (Nirvana, Mudhoney). The album is dark and deeply personal, examining technology, love, and death throughout: how separation in humanity can come through any of these avenues; how people try to outrun the demise of lives and relationships; how technology can isolate us and impact our relationships even as we completely – and willingly – assimilate ourselves into it; and how we’ve begun to forego privacy for a feeling of immortality in order to not be ignored or forgotten.
