Hiatus, shmiatus! Thee Oh Sees are back after all (and rather quickly!) with an unexpected new LP, Drop. Set to release on Record Store Day 2014 (tomorrow!), the album is an energetic dive straight back into the electric pool of psychedelic rock n’ roll that Thee Oh Sees are known for.
That’s not to say that Drop is without a little special RSD glitz – the core band is joined by a few rock scene gurus, including Greer McGettrick, Mikal Cronin, Chris Woodhouse and Casafis. Based on the first three released tracks, “Penetrating Eye”, “Drop”, and “The Lens”, this new album could quickly come to rival 2013’s Floating Coffin as Thee Oh Sees’ most diverse and thoughtful album to date. Drop comes out via Castle Face Records on Saturday April 19th.
