There are more alternative rock bands competing for listeners’ attention than ever before, and the competition for coverage from publications like ours is equally fierce. In order to stand out in this crowded arena bands need to have something special that cannot be found in their genre peers, and for our money there are few bands doing a better job of separating themselves from the herd than New Jersey seven-piece, Thank You Scientist.
Boasting an elaborate and unpredictable sound, Thank You Scientist recently became the first band to sign with Evil Ink Records. The label, which was founded by Coheed And Cambria vocalist Claudio Sanchez, will release the band’s new album later this year. We have the great honor of premiering a track from the record entitled “Blue Automatic” today, and we cannot wait for you to hear it. A concise description of the material fails us, but it’s something akin to The Dear Hunter and now defunct rock band Kiss Kiss scrambled together. You can stream the song below.
When asked about the story behind the song, Thank You Scientist told us:
“This is a quintessential TYS anthem about dealing with depression which includes, among other things, vocal injury and a near-death experience with Carbon Monoxide at our former rehearsal spot.”
Stranger Heads Prevail, the upcoming Evil Ink Records from Thank You Scientist, will be released on July 29. Pre-orders are available now.
Thank You Scientist also recently shared a hilarious video to promote their impending album release. Watch it now:
