It appears as though 2013, especially the month of March, will be a busy time for the Thermals. Just as Sub Pop reissues their first three albums, the Portland punk rockers will embark on a tour that includes SxSW stops. They also have a new album in the can.

On March 5, Sub Pops drops 2003's 'More Parts Per Million,' 2004's 'F---in' A' and 2006's 'The Body, the Blood, the Machine.' Each record will be available in a limited edition colored-vinyl format, as well. So that ought to perk up the collector contingent.

In addition to the re-release of their classic material, the band just wrapped a new platter, due out sometime this year, according to Pitchfork.The new stuff is labeled "loud, fast, incredibly scary and undeniably catchy." Great, that's just how we like it. The Thermals have claimed the album is like a hybrid of 'More Parts Per Million' and 'The Body, the Blood, the Machine.' The band's brief run of tour dates is below.
