The Thermals are back with their first new album since 2013's Desperate Ground. We Disappear is out March 25 via Saddle Creek. It was recorded in Portland and Seattle, and it's produced by Chris Walla (ex-Death Cab for Cutie).
Hutch Harris shared a statement about the album's themes:
"Technology, love and death are the three obsessions of the record. Our privacy used to be so important to us and now everything has changed—we freely offer once private information about relationships and reveal everything about our day-to-day lives. We’re trying to preserve our life digitally so when we’re gone people won’t forget us. We’re using technology to become immortal. You can even set up Facebook and Twitter accounts to continue updating after you die! We Disappear is about how humans fight the inevitable."
The LP version of the album has a limited edition run of 400 clear vinyl copies.
