Anonymous said: I'm assuming with Mikes retirement from RCE that means he's done with Thanks as well. Is John the one doing the vocals in the EP? and is Mike the keyboardist?
Although Thanks was centered around songs John had written (he is on keys and vox on that EP), it was still very much a collaborative process. So Thanks is no longer making music, as it stands. But you can still keep up with John’s work here: www.facebook.com/muccinonoise

Your personalities will always be strong despite your themes. And I've always wanted to say this - DLTSGDOYA helped me through a really, really dark time in my life. I can never ever thank or appreciate you guys enough for lighting the healing spark in my soul and leadingme out of the darkness of anxiety, schizophrenia, and doubt
Thank you so much.
Joe and I have talked extensively about the differences between those two records and within the band as they were released. It’s really great to hear someone feel the same way as we do: those records do a pretty great job of describing who we were and what we were going through at the times they were written. They may be different from each other but they were still US and that will always be the case with anything we put out in the future. I’m still very proud of how they both came out and will defend that until the day I die.
Also, I feel ecstatic that we could have helped you find yourself through your demons. The truth is you, everyone that has supported us past and present, have done just the same for me. The people we have met, the friends that we have made, heck, even just the shows themselves have all helped me find strength in myself and I’ll never be able to fully express my gratitude.
