Another new-band alert: Meet Thief River, a group made up of former members of Rexway

So evidently, we should have held off a bit longer posting that

scene report yesterday

. After that item went live, we received word that

Primasonic had reached the end of the road

, and this morning, we caught wind of another new group getting ready to hit the scene.

Thief River

is being led by

Mike Mitchell

and features some of his former


co-horts --

Chris Dockter

on guitar and

Craig Dubin

on drums -- along with

King Rat


Mike Makkay

and bassist

Geoff Orwiler


The outfit, slated to make its live on August 20 at the Soiled Dove Underground, just posted a clip for the first single from its self-titled, forthcoming three-song EP, which the quartet recorded at Strickler Studio with Jimmy Strickler. Check out the video (shot in the band's rehearsal space), and then download the tracks below.
