The Thermals are on the road and in the air

Good news if you're a Thermals fan in the Pacific Northwest or Western Europe! The Portland, Ore.-based band has set a few December tour dates in just those regions.

The band will play a show in Seattle before heading a few hours South for a couple of dates in Portland. Then the Sub Poppers will trade the rainy Northwest for sunny Europe (well, at least Spain should be sunny). If their MySpace blog is any indication, there's a chance that more dates could be added to the line-up, especially after their next record, Now We Can See, drops in 2009.

The Thermals as-of-now 2008 tour dates:

4 - Seattle, Wash. @ Chop Suey
5 - Portland, Ore. @ Doug Fir Lounge
6 - Portland, Ore. @ Doug Fir Lounge
12 - Barcelona, Spain @ Primavera Club Festival
13 - Madrid, Spain @ Primavera Club Festival
14 - London, England @ KCLSU
17 - Utrecht, Netherlands @ Ekko
18 - Groningen, Netherlands @ Vera
