Mark your calendars, Thermals fans, because on March 5th of this year we will be reissuing the entirety of The Thermals classic label discography – More Parts Per Million, Fuckin’ A, and The Body, The Blood, The Machine -on vinyl. All three releases will be available on limited edition, colored vinyl and are available for preorder now here at Sub Pop.com.
The Thermals have issued a statement on behalf of the reissues, as well as upcoming tour plans, and unusual sleeping arrangements:
“Don’t call it a comeback! They’ve been here for years. But in this (hopefully) foul year of our Lord, 2013, The Thermals are indeed returning. With a vengeance. They will soon release their 6th LP, and again set about touring the world with an endless supply of wit and energy. But first, Sub Pop Records (who discovered and “broke” The Thermals way back in 2003) proudly announces the reissuing of The Thermals’ first three classic LP’s – More Parts Per Million, Fuckin’ A, and The Body, The Blood, The Machine (as well as the rare “No Culture Icons” 7".) These records have been unavailable on vinyl for some time, and are now back in limited color editions!
These iconic, enduring collections of incredibly listenable songs will be re-released on March 5, 2013. The date is EXACTLY ten years since the release of More Parts Per Million, The Thermals’ blistering no-fi debut. Whew, ten years? Do you feel old? The Thermals don’t. But then again, they sleep in a “holy bed” brand hyper-baric/-bolic chamber. You know, like Jacko did.
Sub Pop and The Thermals hope vinyl enthusiasts everywhere enjoy these terrific records. Sit back, drop the needle, and let The Thermals take you back to a time of wonder and innocence, a time when indie rockers still shaved their faces, and you had to actually go into a store if you wanted to steal a record."
