Thinning The Herd Streaming Full New "Freedom From The Known" Album

"Freedom From The Known," the sophomore full-length from NYC trio Thinning the Herd, is now available on CD and via iTunes with additional digital outlets to follow, released via the band’s own Saint Marks Records.

This Is Not A Scene is now broadcasting "Freedom From The Known" in its entirety, paired with a lively summary of the album’s foundation and what’s transformed within the band between the album’s initial inspiration to the completion of the album, and the hardships the group endured bringing it to fruition. Check out the album breakdown here or stream the full release below.

Founding Thinning The Herd vocalist/guitarist Gavin Spielman had replaced the crew on debut full-length, "Oceans Rise," recruiting a new rhythm section in 2012 with bassist Wes Edmonds and drummer Rick Cimato (ex-Locked In A Vacancy). The new lineup traveled to Chicago last Summer to record the sophomore album "Freedom From The Known" at Electrical Audio Studios with Steven Albini, and as they were preparing to release the new album, Rick Cimato was tragically killed in a head-on collision over the 2012 holiday season.

Mourning the loss of their friend, Spielman and Edmonds hosted several local listening parties of the album for local fans and friends to honor Rick and his family, and then recruited local drummer Garth Macaleavey to carry the new material and TTH as a whole forward.
