What’s black and white and goes on national tours? The Thermals!

What's black and white and goes on national tours? The Thermals!

The Thermals have been very busy bees, buzzing back and forth across the world to promote their newest album on Kill Rock Stars, Personal Life (TMT Review), and they don’t plan on stopping anytime soon.

The Portland natives have now announced an upcoming US tour with Matt and Kim where they will visit almost every state (sorry Montana, Idaho, and all the others) and continue bearing their personal lives to all of their devoted, bespectacled fans. This newest tour is in addition to the already announced dates in Europe with The Coathangers and the handful of gigs in May, including a set at Washington’s Sasquatch! Festival.

Besides the massive amount of touring, the band recently shot a video for their song “Not Like Any Other Feeling.” The video, which includes stop-motion chalk animation, rotoscoping, Super-8 film, 50 volunteers, and a recreation of the moon landing, was shot in Washington and was a joint project between The Thermals, Kill Rock Stars, Seattle Sound Transit, and the Seattle Experimental Animation Team. Go ahead and view that sucker here.
