Thou - Peasant

Before Thou released their 2014 album Summit (Gambit Big Easy award-winner), they spent the spring of 2008 rushing to complete their second full-length, Peasant, in time for a month-and-a-half trek across the United States. This record would be their last true album to abandon melody for the self-indulgent, Southern-style sludge-riffing that had most of their early fans saying, "I thought you'd be bigger with more tattoos and beards." Originally released on vinyl by Level Plane Records, this edition-remastered by Adam Tucker (Signature Tone Recording)-is housed in a tip-on style gatefold jacket with 180-gram black vinyl, a twenty-page booklet, and poster. This double-LP also offers the complete version, including the CD-only tracks from the To Carry a Stone EP (released in 2008 by Noxious Noize) as well as bonus tracks from the Malfeasance / Retribution EP (released in 2008 on Feast of Tentacles and Rimbaud) and an unreleased cover of Nirvana's "Aneurysm."
