THICK Records Sign The CG5





Chicago's THICK Records have announced the signing of The GC5, a rambunctious group of noisemakers in vein of Rancid, Dropkick Murphys, Swinging Utters and The Distillers. THICK V.P. Billy Spunke had this to say about his newest signing, "Every once in a great while I will stumble across a band, usually by accident, who gives me the feeling of being saved by rock & roll." THICK will release Never Bet The Devil Your Head on June 11, which is produced by Ryan Foltz of the Dropkick Murphys. The GC5 will begin a month-long US tour on May 24 down in Conway, Arkansas. Yes, aside from daily "greased pig" contests, they do have rock shows in Arkansas.
