BOTW Video: The Thermals – ‘Born to Kill’

Earlier this year, our current BOTW – Oregon indie-punk trio The Thermals – entered a remote Portland nature park and shot what’s certainly one of the most grisly, raucous videos we’ve seen all year here at PlanetNotion. Full of toy guns and fake – or at least that’s what we’ve …
