The Thermals have announced they'll be putting out a new album - their seventh - this spring. We Disappear is due out on March 25th via Saddle Creek and is preceded by 'Hey You', the LP's first taster, which is available for you to stream below.

The LP was recorded at Portland's Kung Fu Bakery and Seattle's The Hall of Justice, with Chris Walla (ex-Death Cab For Cutie) in charge of production. "Technology, love and death are the three obsessions of the record," Hutch Harris explains. "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."

We Disappear is now up for pre-order via Saddle Creek's website in multiple formats (including a very limited edition on clear vinyl), with 'Hey You' available as an instant download if you pre-order the LP on iTunes. EU/UK tour dates are expected to be announced soon.
