The Thermals took three years to go from The Body, The Blood, The Machine in 2006 to this year’s awesome Now We Can See, but it seems that the band wants their next record to come out a lot sooner than that. Their label, Kill Rock Stars is saying we’ll get a new Thermals record September 7, 2010, which is awesome. The possible hitch in this plan? The band hasn’t exactly recorded it yet. They’ll meet up with Death Cab’s Chris Walla in Larry Crane’s Jackpot! Studio next month to get cracking. Given the track record of the band, Walla as producer, and the records made in Jackpot!, this is probably going to be a really great record. Is it 2010 yet?
