“We’re really excited about this new album. We’ve put in so much work into this limited bundle to make sure it’s perfect, and we hope our fans agree and help us crush our release week. We’re a bunch of weirdos making music for weirdos that still care about weird music, and I think that’s a beautiful thing.” – Tom Monda
The album marks the first recordings of the Thank You Scientist’s new lineup, which includes Joe Fadem on drums, Sam Greenfield on Sax, and Joe Gullace on trumpet.
“The new members were all guys that myself, Ben, and Cody play with in Cody’s band ‘We Used to Cut The Grass.’ They were all a big part of the writing and arranging process for this album and I feel very lucky to be in a band with them.” – Monda
Thank You Scientist will be on a US tour this summer with Reign of Kindo and In the Presence of Wolves from April 12th in New Jersey, ending May 19th in NY.
