Thank You Scientist is a seven-piece progressive rock band from Bergen County, New Jersey. Featuring a violinist and horn section, the rock group was formed in 2010 by guitarist Tom Monda. Blending genres such as progressive rock, funk, metal and pop, in January 2011, the group released their first effort, an EP titled The Perils of Time Travel, which was received positively by progressive rock outlets.[1] After a year of local touring and writing, Thank You Scientist released their sophomore work Maps of Non-Existent Places on June 8, 2012.


The band was formed in early 2010 when guitarist Tom Monda began jamming with drummer Odin Alvarez and bassist Greg Colacino. After holding numerous auditions, the band's lineup became finalized as they added four more members and began writing music. Their first show was at Mexicali Live in Teaneck, New Jersey, in March 2010. After more shows and positive crowd reaction, the band began work on a primary release. In January 2011, Thank You Scientist released The Perils of Time Travel, an EP that received positive reviews, with critics describing it as, "[f]using countless styles into their inventive music" and "show[ing] signs of everything from pop punk to prog metal".[2] After playing numerous shows throughout the Tri-State Area, the band returned to the studio in March 2012 to record their sophomore effort and first full-length album, Maps of Non-Existent Places. The album was released on June 8, 2012, to initially positive reaction.[3] Soon after the band was signed by Coheed and Cambria's lead singer Claudio Sanchez's own record lable "Evil Ink Records." Soon after signing with Evil Ink Records the band got together and continued a new production to add to their Progressive resume. The album "Maps of Non-Existent Places" was released on September 30, 2014.
