THOU ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM UMBILICAL, DUE 31ST MAY VIA SACRED BONES

 "I FEEL NOTHING WHEN YOU CRY”
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xduNsuJVxGs

SELECT DATES ANNOUNCED, INCLUDING THE NEW ORLEANS PALESTINE BENEFIT ON 13TH APRIL

"They've called us anarchists, criminals, foreign meddlers, lunatics, dispossessed, relativists, utilitarians, egoists, passion maximizers, ascetics, negators of everything. Clearly, the "Thou" experiment is never going to appeal to audiences who demand that art rigorously enforce a coherent and righteous worldview.

And yet, are we not ourselves constrained by our own rigid morality? In those quiet moments of deep contemplation, when the bargains and concessions are thoroughly examined, when we yield before the Judging Eye--what is the summation of our choices? If the unspoiled self beyond the immensity of time were given voice, what pronouncements would be made? What would such an internal audit yield? What undeniable character would be revealed?

This record is for the radicals, the crackpots, the exiles who have escaped the wasteland of capitulation. This record is for the militants and zealots refusing to surrender to comforts, to practicalities, to thirty pieces of silver. And this record is most especially for the weaklings and malingerers, burdened by capricious indulgence, hunched by the deep wounds of compromise, shuffling in limp approximation, desperately reaching back towards integrity and conviction." – THOU

Thou has always been a force of raw energy and unapologetic dissent, defying easy categorization and challenging listeners to confront the complexities of existence. Their forthcoming album, Umbilical, is their firmest nod to the latter - a record filled with mosh-ready riffs, heavy breakdowns and scathing vocals. The band’s aesthetic and political impulses have always been punk and like anyone embroiled in the subculture Thou have been exploring what it means to exist within and without a rigid morality. That exploration takes thematic center on Umbilical and their self-assessment is as harsh as that of the world around them.

Thou share their seething lead single and album centerpiece, “I Feel Nothing When You Cry.” Quote?
Umbilical is Thou's first full-length release of original music since their 2018 Sacred Bones debut Magus, and 2020 collaborative split with Emma Ruth Rundle, May Our Chambers By Full. 
Umbilical will be released across all digital platforms and available in stores May 31 via Sacred Bones.
All vinyl editions come with a black 7” featuring the tracks "I Feel Nothing When You Cry” and "Unbidden Guest”, which are also available on CD and digital products.
