WTF Wednesday: The Thermals Show Us The “Sam Raimi Shot”

Posted March 27

Welcome to another edition of WTF Wednesday, where bands show us what the f**k they’re looking at online. This week, we caught up with The Thermals, who showed us a collection of clips that inspired their brand-new, bloody vid for their single, “Born To Kill,” off of their upcoming album, Desperate Ground.

“The first single and video is called ‘Born To Kill’ and it’s not unlike a Tarantino or Sam Raimi film,” says the band’s Hutch Harris. “It’s very serious and dark and violent and bloody, but there’s a sense of humor to it at the same time.”

Check out Harris and fellow bandmate Kathy Foster talking flicks below to find out what exactly the “Sam Raimi” shot is and how it crops up in their new vid. For a peek at the video in question head over yonder.
