Hometown alternative outfit Thank You Scientist spent a rainy Friday the thirteenth closing out a five-week winter tour at the esteemed Asbury Lanes. The hometown band treated fans, family, and friends to a catalog-spanning marathon that showcased the amazing eclectic sound and energy of this band. There is no better energy than a band playing the music they love to the people who have supported them from the beginning.

Led by the extremely powerful vocals of Salavatore Marrano, the powerful guitar skills of Tom Monda, Ben Karas on electric violin, Sam Greenfield and Joe Gullace on horns, Cody McCorry on bass and theremin, and Joe Fadem on drums, Thank You Scientist achieves an amazing sound that is fun and full of quick lyrics and hard rhythms. They treated fans to stellar versions of "My Famed Disappearing Act," "Everyday Ghosts," and new single "FXMLDR." Each member showing how well the 7-piece outfit fits together creating their unique sound.

After dealing with the struggles of the road, coming home to perform to family and friends seemed to be and extreme weight off the band’s shoulders allowing them to have fun with their music and each other. Asbury Lanes played the perfect host; the historic punk venue is back and continuing its great tradition in this music scene, while continuing to support the vast acts who come out of the Asbury Park area.

Thank You Scientist were formed in 2009 at Montclair State University. Releasing their first album in 2012 it caught the attention of Claudio Sanchez, Vocalist and guitar player of the popular band Coheed and Cambria, and founder of Evil Ink Records. They were the first band signed to the record label and began touring in 2015. After years on the road, another album, and a lineup change ... we fast forward to 2019 where the band has released their third album Terraformer and spent most of the year on road in support of it. 2020 is slated to be a big year for Thank You Scientist, it is exciting to see where the music goes.
