THANK YOU: new video – headline tour in May – tour with Battles in June

| On 11, May 2011

After their headline shows this month (including London date at Camp Basement on 24 May), Baltimore-based no-wave, post-punk band THANK YOU will be back in Europe touring with BATTLES, see dates below. They also unveil a brand new video for the track “Pathetic Magic” from their new album Golden Worry.

Thank You – Pathetic Magic from Thrill Jockey Records on Vimeo.

Now a four-piece, Thank You’s latest album Golden Worry (produced by Chris Coady – Beach House, Gang Gang Dance) was released earlier this year to much critical acclaim. They have since added a new bass player STEVE SANTILLAN who brings an extra punch to their dynamic sound. Fans of innovative post-punk, poly-rhythmic drumming, and more cerebral no wave, will find much to enjoy about Thank You.

The video for “Pathetic Magic” was directed by Baltimore animator Karen Yasinsky.

shines a light on pop-hooks with a teeth grindingly high riff that sticks in your head as it skips over the head-nodding drums and smooth, hum-worthy harmonies… exciting and full-of-energy.” – Loud + Quiet

“Obtuse and unrelenting, their discordant racket serves as a soundtrack to their native city’s bleak industrial climate, in the same way Big Black characterised mid-Eighties Illinois or Pere Ubu a decade earlier with Cleveland… There’s a diversity to Golden Worry’s six pieces. ‘1-2-3 Bad’ takes a similar post-punk route to that of No Age, offering minimal noise where others would probably take a more dance-orientated route… it’s hard to envisage a more challenging, complex record than this”– Drowned in Sound
