THICK

About 5 Years Behind by THICK

5 Years Behind, the debut album from Brooklyn DIY punk band THICK, is available now via Epitaph.

5 Years Behind came to life in Studio G Brooklyn with producer/engineer Joel Hamilton (Iggy Pop, Jolie Holland). On their debut album, THICK confronts the countless disappointments and injustices they deal with every day: the reckless hypocrisy of people in power, social media’s erosion of genuine connection, dudes who feel inexplicably entitled to share their most loathsome opinions. But even in their most exasperated moments, THICK sustains ferocious energy and untamed joy, ultimately turning every song into a wildly cathartic anthem.

“A lot of these songs came from feeling stifled in silence, but then the song itself is an answer to that,” says vocalist, bassist, & guitarist Kate Black. “It’s us saying, ‘I have my opinion, and I’m going to share it no matter what.’ Instead of keeping things all bottled up, it feels so much better to face everything head on, and just be really loud about it with your two best friends.”
