Thee Oh Sees creep and thrash around the world, release a video, and play on Carson Daly's talk show...?

Ladies and germs, I am in a punk band. Or, almost in a punk band. Some of the members still need to learn their instruments, but I’m hoping that once we finally bang out a few songs, we manage to sound at least a little bit like Thee Oh Sees.

Last year, John Dwyer and company gave us loads of wild and crazy rock ‘n’ roll, and ever since then, we’ve been playing it loudly and freaking out our neighbors. Even though Thee Oh Sees haven’t announced any follow-ups to Castlemania (TMT Review) and Carrion Crawler/The Dream, they have announced a world tour (which includes a certain festival that this writer will be attending), and they’ve released a video for “Chem Farmer,” which showcases the antics of leprechauns on a punk-yodeling tour. Plus, their Red 7 performance at SXSW was filmed for Last Call with Carson Daly, and “Tidal Wave” and “Meat Step Lively” were featured on the show. Who would have thought Carson Daly was so rad?

I won’t be surprised when, at some point this year, Thee Oh Sees release 13 EPs over the course of a week, all with covers featuring neon-colored monsters jumping out of rocket-shaped clouds. Or wizards dripping with slime, climbing out of coffins. Or just flames and veins.
