G Brooklyn with producer/engineer Joel Hamilton (Iggy Pop, Jolie
Over the years, THICK have earned recognition as an unstoppable
live act, with their show typically spawning a mosh pit described
by Stereogum as "more like an aggressive hug." As they dreamed up
the tightly crafted yet uncontainable sound of 5 Years Behind,
the band kept the live experience at the forefront of their minds.
"When we write, we write toward the emotions of the audience," says
Sisti. "I know that lyrics play a huge role in connection, but I'm
personally more focused on visualizing how people might physically
respond to a song-what it would make them feel in the moment
and how it might make them move or dance."
Now gearing up for a national tour in support of 5 Years Behind,
THICK aspire to strengthen the palpable sense of inclusivity
that's defined their shows from the start. "We want people to feel
safe in the mosh pit, and hopefully connect with each other," says
Page. "We've made so many friends at the shows we've played, and
we'd love it if people could build some kind of community from
coming to see us."
