The Thermals are a three piece post-pop-punk band from Portland, Oregon. Formed in early 2002, The Thermals signed to Sub Pop Records that fall, on the recommendation of Ben Gibbard (Death Cab For Cutie). They have since released three records on the label, the latest of which appeared on many best-of lists in 2006, including Pitchfork, Spin, NPR, and The Onion's A.V. Club. The band is probably most famous for its contributions to three-chord punk, though they've since discovered a fourth (F#).
