In 2017, the band was introduced to drummer and bass player extraordinaire, Dave Cornicelli (aka Duff Cobra), and a power trio was formed. Duff’s buttery bass grooves have helped add a sonic dimension to the band’s sound that was missing on the their first album. ThingsNocturnal has released its second album, The Plague Doctor, on November 30, 2018. The Plague Doctor is a lyrical dive into those things that currently plague society. By focusing on social commentary, as opposed to political commentary, the album hits you hard with themes that are sometimes uncomfortable to discuss. There are powerful messages on the racial divide in the U.S., the absence of fathers, the growing heroin epidemic, as well as religious martyrdom.
