Since 2008 this is the third line-up for THE THICK OF IT and the third coming of a
different sound for the band.
In 2008 a 5 song EP titled " Destroyed " was released , the songs were more acoustic
rock driven and were well received by fans. After a few years of playing shows and
writing the band went back into the studio to record more music and ended up with a full
length album titled " First Day Of Death" which was released in July of 2010. This album
had a mix of acoustic rock and heavier rock songs and showed how the band was
evolving it's sound into they're heavier scope of writing .Then after a break the band
decided to record 2 all acoustic songs which they discretely released in 2013. Over the
next few years all band members were playing in other projects, local and international
but all the while still writing new music for THE THICK OF IT.
Although the live shows were less often the writing of new material was still going
strong. In March of 2017 local producer Kris Siegers took a interest in the band and
eagerly wanted to record new songs. Kris had worked with Russ Bergquist , the bassist
for the band in the past but did not know the other members. Kris wanted to capture the
pure essence and sound of the band and immediately had chemistry with all members
of THE THICK OF IT. To say that these new songs demand the listeners attention is a
understatement, the new music created by these seasoned, pure musicians is "
Beautifully Crushing". Kris Siegers achieved his production goals and then some by not
only capturing the sound of the band but taking it to a new level.
