Adam Bates I'm so glad this album was rereleased; it is a work of high art, combining emotionality with lush arrangements that reward a thoughtful listener. Favorite track: CPR / Claws Pt. 2 (2021 Remastered Version).

aceofcorvids this album makes me feel like i unlocked primal human emotions that havent been felt in over 20 thousand years but also like im feeling something no human has ever felt and like im feeling the core Human Experience at the same time. this is actually the album ive listened to the least out of any of typhoon's stuff, so i unfortunately dont have that much more to say in detail, but MAN i love this a lot. hype to listen to it in one sitting a dozen more times! Favorite track: Never Be Your Lover [Bonus Track].

tsar-mixolydian An already iconic album, with crispier vocals and mixes. Not necessarily BETTER than the original (though for sure different/as good at least), but so happy to have it. And bonus tracks! Favorite track: The Sickness Unto Death (2021 Remastered Version).

All those years fold up like an accordion.

We released Hunger and Thirst over a decade ago, and when I listen back to it now I am filled with the mixed emotions one always feels when contemplating a younger self: embarrassment, nostalgia, the tenderness specific to hindsight - the full knowledge of the intervening joys and sorrows that will carry the little fool all the way into this moment.

This record, for all intents and purposes, is where it started. It was in recording and playing these songs that our loose, feral, house-show collective congealed into something like a band; sprawling, yes, but durable enough to pack into an ‘85 Dodge Ram and take on the road. Listening back, are there things we would do differently now? Oh, definitely. But then, I guess that’s the point: this is the record that made the other ones possible.

On the occasion of its eleventh anniversary (eleventh because, well, 2020, etc) we’re releasing a special edition of Hunger and Thirst, newly mixed and mastered. The digital release includes two bonus tracks written in the H&T era and recorded in 2021: an acoustic version of “CPR” (after so many years of playing it, I think this is how the song is meant to sound), and a previously unreleased track called “Never Be Your Lover” (which longtime fans may remember from live shows back in the day under the working title “Pain, Love”).

The new edition also features reimagined album artwork by the original artist, Rick DeLucco.

Special thanks to Paul Laxer for mixing our record twice and to Tender Loving Empire for putting this baby out, then and now.
