Taking to Twitter, the Thermals announced that the project has simply run its course:
We are officially disbanding! After 15 years and 7 records, we feel our band has reached far beyond our initial expectations and goals, and are stepping away from it while we still cherish it.— The Thermals (@thethermals) April 9, 2018
We traveled further, soared higher and played louder than we ever dreamed, and look forward to a new chapter in our lives, our art, and our friendship. We would like to thank all the great labels who have released our records and the amazing people who have worked so hard for us!— The Thermals (@thethermals) April 9, 2018
Most importantly we would like to thank our fans, who we consider to be some of the smartest, sweetest and most compassionate people in the world. We love you, and we hope to see you again some day.— The Thermals (@thethermals) April 9, 2018
