R E T T E AL FOR

YOU


THE SOUND THOUGHTS ARE A FOUR-PIECE MELODIC ALTERNATIVE-ROCK BAND FROM CEDAR RAPIDS, IA. INSPIRED EQUALLY BY THE MELODIES OF JIMMY EAT WORLD AND THE BOMBASTIC GUITAR STYLING OF FOO FIGHTERS, THEY SYNTHESIZE INDIE SENSIBILITIES WITH RADIO-ROCK MUSCLE. SONGS ARE PROGRESSIVE AND COMPLEX, YET ARE INSTANTLY HUM-ABLE. THE BAND MASTERFULLY PROJECTS THEIR CATCHY, MINOR KEY MELODIES WITH BLAZON ENERGY AND POWER. TIM KING (GUITAR, VOCALS) AND DEREK ANDERSON (DRUMS) CAME TOGETHER IN THE WINTER OF 2008. FAST-FORWARD ONE YEAR, THE DEBUT ALBUM “IT’S BEGINNING TO LOOK A LOT LIKE DISASTER” WAS COMPLETED. A LIVE BAND WAS PUT TOGETHER AND INCLUDED SETH HANSEN AND GRANT JENNINGS. THE SOUND THOUGHTS STARTED ROCKING AROUND EASTERN IOWA IN THE SUMMER OF 2009. AN EP TITLED “END STATEMENT” WAS RELEASED IN 2010. THE BAND SAW LINEUP CHANGES, WITH SETH DECIDING TO PURSUE OTHER INTERESTS AND GRANT MOVING TO OREGON. DEREK’S BROTHER LANCE ANDERSON THEN JOINED THE FOLD AS BASSIST AND THE BAND BECAME A THREE-PIECE. THEN, IN 2013, NAOMI TEGELER HULTENG WAS ADDED TO THE RANKS, THUS COMPLETING THE FOUR-PIECE LINEUP AGAIN. NOT ONES TO SHY AWAY FROM MAKING NEW FRIENDS, THE BAND HAVE SHARED THE STAGE WITH ALL TYPES OF ROCK TALENT FROM AROUND THE MIDWEST. OFTEN HEADLINING THEIR OWN LOCAL SHOWS, THEY HAVE ALSO PROVIDED OPENING AND DIRECT SUPPORT FOR NATIONAL TOURING BANDS CANDLEBOX AND CAROLINE’S SPINE (RESPECTIVELY). WHEN NOT MELTING FACES WITH THEIR ELECTRIC LIVE SETS, THE BAND IS CONSTANTLY WRITING AND RECORDING NEW MATERIAL. THEIR NEXT ALBUM “TERMINAL” IS DUE OUT VERY SOON.
