The Latest

Our 8th studio record Open Door Policy is out now via Positive Jams/Thirty Tigers, and we are thrilled to be sharing it with you. This is the second LP to feature this six piece lineup of THS. It was produced by the amazing Josh Kaufman, a beautiful human who brought huge amounts of creativity and fun to the sessions. The other half of that dream team is our pal D. James Goodwin, who skillfully engineered and mixed the record. We are immensely thankful to both. Stuart Bogie, Jordan McLean, and Ray Mason play horns throughout out the record and bring such a cool dimension. Annie Nero and Cassandra Jenkins (“The Creeps”) brought their incredible voices to the backup vocals. Matt Barrick helped with percussion on a song. Our longtime friend Dave Gardner mastered. The cover photos were sourced from Dave McLaughlin (front) and Kelly Shee (back). Vance Wellenstein did the album artwork and Nick Hollomon added some illustration detail. Lastly, much appreciation to Thirty Tigers for being the engine behind all of it. Gratitude to all, we are very proud to put it out into the world today.

Thanks for listening, thanks for understanding. Stay Positive.
