In 2007, longtime musical acquaintances Thomas Barnwell, Max McDonough, Chris Ware and Ian Deaton met to start something new. They had only a couple of ground rules: #1, it was to be significantly less poppy than Barnwell and McDonough’s other project, the Orphins, and #2, it was to be substantially more poppy than Ware and Deaton’s previous band, Blame Game.
The quartet wrote a few songs whil...e searching for the perfect voice to handle both pop melodies and blazing speed picking. They found that voice in ex-I Would Set Myself On Fire For You member Lindsey Harbour.
The band quickly had enough material for a full length, but shortly thereafter, Deaton abruptly left the band. Determined to march on, the group continued writing and started searching for a replacement that could bring fresh ideas while maintaining their signature sound. Erin Carmichael, formerly of the group SIDS, fit the bill wonderfully. Once again a five piece, the band took no time to gel and has been feverishly writing new material and playing live.
Their self-titled debut is equal parts art rock, pop, metal and punk. Angular guitars dart in and out of danceable rhythms. Soaring vocals turn on a dime into shouts. Dark melodies shift to a blur of triumphant guitars. And through it all the sound is uniquely Thy Mighty Contract.
