"THINKING PLAGUE NEWS
Thinking Plague has finished the recording phase the new CD, "Decline and Fall", the 6th studio album by the band. It will be mixed by Bob Drake during June, and officially released by Cuneiform in September. This CD will have a somewhat harder-edged, more 'rock' sound than "A History of Madness", with a more standard 'rock band plus reeds' approach and less acoustic, orchestral or ethnic instrumentation. While the CD title sounds ominous, the music is not necessarily so, and is very song-oriented in a 'classic' TP fashion without being particularly similar to other TP releases.
TP and Hamster Theatre (which have 3 members in common) will together do a short series of concerts in the Northeast in November, as follows:
