POM75 Thems That Wait “Nova”

Maine Metal/Stoner Rock band Thems That Wait was formed when longtime friends and songwriting partners Craig Garland and Mat Patterson met Texan Branden Clements through a Craigslist ad in early 2017.  The band’s sound has been compared to Black Sabbath, Clutch and Kyuss. 

Thems That Wait prides itself on being a solid live rock band that sounds as full as possible as a 3 piece with mammoth drumming by Branden Clements, true bass playing from Mat Patterson who tastefully weaves around guitarist Craig Garland’s heavy handed, memorable riffs and barbaric, guttural vocals.  Following the band’s live debut in January 2018 in Portland, Maine, the power trio continued to gig and make connections, and ultimately landed a chance to open for New England Hardcore legend Scissorfight in the fall of 2018.  In January 2019, Thems That Wait recorded their debut EP Fiction at The Maine Music Mill in Brunswick, Maine with Andy Porta(Blackcat Sounds). 

Andy and the band mixed the EP and Steve Austin(Today Is The Day, Austin Enterprise Recording & Mastering) mastered it.  In addition to the band’s arsenal of all original songs, Bass player Mat Patterson designs all of the artwork for the band, including the cover for the FictionEP.  The band plans to record the follow up to Fictionbefore the end of 2019 with a tentative 2020 release date but until then, we wait…
