Thoughtcrimes (ex-DEP) releases debut EP in extended vinyl reissue (new song + splash pre-order)
Pre-order our splash vinyl variant of Thoughtcrimes’ expanded ‘Tap Night’ EP.
Dillinger’s Escape Plan have been separated since 2017, but the members have been active in other projects, including drummer Billy Rymer, who is now busy with his new band Thought crimes (which also includes Rick Pepa, Brian Sullivan, Russ Savarese and Cody Hosza). Thoughtcrimes has just signed with Pure Noise, who will give their debut EP 2019 Press Night a vinyl reissue on October 8 with two unreleased tracks, “Misery’s A Muse” and “Wedlock Waltz”. The first was released today, with an animated video directed by Billy’s brother, Tom Rymer.
“My brother Tom Rymer is an amazing artist who has helped us tremendously on many occasions,” says Billy. “Her friend Riley Schmidt is another huge talent and artistic genius. The two of us worked painstakingly with us on making a hand-drawn concept animation video for ‘Misery’s A Muse’. They also triggered and executed the concept of Press Night artistic cover. “
Like the original Press Night songs, “Misery’s A Muse” is a killer dose of riffy, chaotic, as ever slightly melodic metalcore, closer to Every Time I Die than DEP. Find out below.
We teamed up with the band on an exclusive black and red smash with a white splash vinyl variant of the EP, limited to just 150 copies. Pre-order yours as long as they last. This is a mockup of the variant above.
The thought crimes also revealed that they would be posting a Mike Watt– produced their first full album in 2022. Stay tuned for more on this.
