2019 album also available on CD.
Blasting out of New Jersey, the the boy-ish septet Thank You Scientist’s new album “Terraformer” is an eclectic, vibrant and well-hydrated serving of progressive rock and with this, their third album, it sees the group at their most ambitious and most unpredictable to date, from a very unique sounding band - the fact that they are a progressive rock band that uses little to no keyboards (or live backing tracks), and includes a saxophonist, trumpeter, and violinist as full time members forms a pretty unique identity. - who thrive on great song writing centred around melodies and hooks while blowing you away with their superior musicianship.
The band: Salvatore Marrano - Vocals, Tom Monda - Guitar, Cody McCorry - Bass, Joe Fadem - Drums, Ben Karas - Violin, Sam Greenfield - Saxophone and Joe Gullace - Trumpet, has taken their experimental, genre-bending sound to the next level by delivering an extremely ambitious and constantly stimulating 84-minutes of experimental rock and roll music in the guise of ‘Terraformer’. Thank You Scientist bring forth their best mixed and produced album to date. The ability to have a traditional rock sound infused with violin and brass is something which is not new to the band. Their ability to compose music displaying fun and high musical skill matches their personalities. Every song has it’s moments of instrumental compositional genius and head banging goodness. With this album, they have now three consecutive official releases with some terrific songs and top notch musicianship.
Founded by guitarist and bandleader Tom Monda, the band self-released the ‘Perils of Time Travel’ EP in 2011, before signing with Claudio Sanchez’s label Evil Ink Records. Their 2012 full length debut, ‘Maps of Non-Existent Places’ made it onto the Billboard Hard Rock and Heatseekers charts, and was eventuallynamed “Album of the Week” by Revolver Magazine in 2014. They followed up in 2016 with ‘Stranger Heads Prevai’l, which cracked the Billboard Top 200 and co-starred on “Home Improvement” with Tim Allen. Thank You Scientist has spent the past several years touring internationally, both as headliners and as direct support for acts such as Coheed and Cambria.
