The Launch Pad-Austin 2013: Meet The Thermals
  • THURSDAY, MARCH 14, 2013

  • Posted by: Madison Murphy

As we come closer and closer to our (Launch Pad) party in Austin, we're letting you know some of the most colorful acts you can't miss at the Knuckle Rumbler Lounge.

Although they've been classified as indie, The Thermals embrace this distinct attitude, gravitating them more towards a standard rock sound. They've been around quite some time, and just recently teamed up with Saddle Creek Records(Conor Oberst's label). Crafted in a rock induced urgency with some heavy political references laced throughout their songs, the Thermals are like that bottle of water you've been waiting the whole first set to chug.

Luckily, their upcoming album Desperate Ground is set to release on April 16th. We even got a chance to talk with frontman Hutch Harris before they hit the road to head down south.

Who are they? Westin Glass, Kathy Foster and Hutch Harris (who actually left us a kick ass mixtape just a few weeks ago).

Who do they sound like? Strung out Mountain Goats (not the animal). Pret-tee awesome.

Check out their latest single from the upcoming Desperate Ground, "Born to Kill" below.
