The Thermals will release their fourth album, Now We Can See, on April 7 via Kill Rock Stars, and if you have ears, a heart, and a head, you should be eagerly counting the days until then. If past releases are any indication, the Thermals' new one should be another too-short (they're always too short) burst of concisely cutting lyrics set to hard-charging, hook-heavy pop-punk given to moments of transcendent uproar. The band should debut a shitload of new material at this show, despite their guitarist/singer's recently busted finger. With the Shaky Hands and Champagne Champagne.
