Cymbals Eat Guitars and The Thermals tour together! Wayne Coyne was right... finally, the punk rockers really ARE taking acid!

New York-based Cymbals Eat Guitars and Portland’s own The Thermals are both pretty balls-to-the-wall rock bands on their own, but they’ve always been somewhat afraid to tour together in the past because they just didn’t feel like the world was ready for THAT much big, sweaty, riff-based rock. “We recognize that, in order to get any recognition, we’re gonna have to bide our time and wait patiently for Foo Fighters to suck a little bit more,” said Thermals man man Hutch Harris several years ago in an interview.

Luckily for you and me, the Foo Fighters now suck plenty (and if you ask me, The Arcade Fire are hanging on by a thread at this point too), leaving the throne empty and the world hungry for some epic gnarly rock ‘n’ roll shit. Add to that the impending release of The Thermals’ new album Personal Life on Kill Rock Stars, and “world takeover” starts sounding like an understatement. Granted, they’re only doing a club tour right now, but just you wait. The Thermals and Cymbals Eat Guitars will have their boots up on the stage wedges at Madison Square Garden in no time. I mean, who’s gonna stand in their way? Built to Spill?? Get real.
