Thee Oh Sees Announce New Album “Drop”
Due Out April 29 on Castle Face Records
You know that scene in Wayne’s World where Wayne tells his psycho girlfriend Stacy that they broke up two months ago and she replies with “Well that doesn’t mean we can’t still go out, does it?” That pretty much sums of Thee Oh Sees relationship with their fans. Back in December, the band announced that they were going on hiatus. And now, only a little over a month later, we’re being told that we get a new album? We don’t know what to think, but we’ll certainly take it.
The band’s fifth full-length Drop is due out April 29 on Castle Face Records. It features Mikal Cronin, along with Greer McGettrick (from the Mallard), Casafis, and drummer Chris Woodhouse. Check out the insane artwork above and prepare for something nice and weird by listening to the first single, "Penetrating Eye" below.
In related news, we also have John Dwyer’s solo album to look forward to.
