The Thermals And Cymbals Eat Guitars Announce Joint Tour

    Portland punk-pop prodigies the Thermals are set to release their Personal Life on Sept. 7, and they’ll be touring behind that record all through October. Joining them on the road will be Cymbals Eat Guitars, who really need to release a new album already (I loved Why There Are Moutains just as much — if not unhealthily more — than the next guy, but they’ve been touring on the strength of those nine songs for a year and a half already). The bands will be blazing through the East Coast, Midest, and the South. The omission of the West Coast is understandable: These acts are way too high-strung for such laid-back locales. Dates below.
