    New Jersey-based Experimental-Rock Ensemble, THANK YOU SCIENTIST, Announces Full-Fledged US Tour Behind Terraformer

    Earlier this summer, experimental 7-piece rock ensemble, Thank You Scientist, released their critically-acclaimed third studio effort, Terraformer–which debuted at Number 8 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart, and Number 15 on the Billboard Alternative chart–and toured across the Northeast in support of the record. Fans across the country of the New Jersey-based band should rejoice, for today, Thank You Scientist shares the first full-fledged national headlining tour in support of Terraformer, making stops coast-to-coast this November and December.

    “We are unreasonably excited to announce our first full-fledged US tour for our latest release–the inconveniently-long, yet suspiciously-charming, TERRAFORMER,” shares TYS bandleader and guitarist, Tom Monda. “An unexpected byproduct of our years of sloggin’ it out is the incredible network of friends we’ve made across the country, friends whose support make it possible for us to keep creating, even under occasionally dire circumstances, and can’t wait to visit all of you across the country this winter.”

    Tickets for the newly-announced, 30-date tour are on sale this Friday, September 6th at 10:00 AM local time via the band’s website.

    “We promise these shows will be an incredible celebration for us and the fellow weirdos we’ve met on this strange journey,” continues Monda. “To make this event even more ‘extra special-er,’ we’re bringing along some of our dearest friends in the biz:  Bent Knee and The Tea Club.” 

    Bent Knee joined Thank You Scientist for their northeast run earlier this year. As Monda explains, “The Tea Club is a band I have loved and admired for years, so much so that I coerced them to join us on our first-ever US tour many years ago! Their line up has since expanded to include my brother on drums, making this tour figuratively and literally a family event. Don’t sleep on this or you’re grounded.” 

    Since the release of Terraformer, Thank You Scientist has spent the summer touring throughout the United Kingdom and recently welcomed a live EP, Live At Backroom Studios, featuring three additional string players and complete video footage of live performances for “Son of a Serpent” and “Anchor.”
