While the future for Thomas and the Pain is anything but certain, both Thomas and Magee hope this is only the beginning. Citing Daptone Records as a model, they envision writing and recording original material going forward. Regardless of where the group may or may not go, Thomas counts himself among the blessed. “I feel very lucky”, he says. “Because a lot of people my age have already given up on everything and they’ve decided they’re just going to get old and die. As long as I can and I feel like I’ve got something to give, I want to be there.”
