The Thermals’ ‘Born to Kill’ Single is To Die For [VIDEO]

Three years have elapsed since Personal Life dropped, but The Thermals are back at it with a new track and corresponding video from their upcoming album, Desperate Ground. Just shy of two minutes, the single rip roars through the tale of a killer getting his just reward from two nondescript authority figures. It’s politically charged and so chock-full of surging emotion, you’ll be sucking wind by the end.
They’ve gone on record saying their filming technique is not unlike what you’d see in a Sam Raimi flick, and draws on the bloodthirsty inspirations of Quentin Tarantino. So, yeah, it’s pretty graphic (as far as music videos are concerned) – let this be your potentially NSFW caution.
Desperate Ground is set to release next week, April 16, via Saddle Creek Records.
