We've been fervently tracking The Thermals'
transition to Saddle Creek Records where they will release their sixth studio album, Desperate Ground
, which frontman Hutch Harris generously told us will be "an album about killing, not death."
So far we've heard the album's first, awesomely abrasive single, "Born To Kill", and seen its music video
. Today, we received our latest taste of the new album in the form of "The Sunset", which is not surprisingly a far (and loud) cry from a tranquil view of a dusk sky.
Watch/Listen via the lyric video below, and feel free to give Hutch and crew your email in exchange for a free download a bit deeper.
Hutch also put together a recent Baeble mixtape
- listen to his favorite Saddle Creek classics, and read a few stories about his long history with Omaha alums.
