Thrice have announced that they will be touring the US with La Dispute and Gates this June. This will be the band’s first headlining tour in 4 years and it begins at The Shrine in Los Angeles on June 3rd. On June 16th, the tour will stop in New York City at PlayStation Theater (formerly Best Buy Theater) and then on June 18th they will play in Sayreville NJ at Starland Ballroom. You can purchase pre-sale tickets here.
Thrice has been a staple in the alternative/modern-rock world for over fifteen years. A band known for continuously releasing groundbreaking records, their discography has sold over a million copies, and they’ve toured the world with acts like The Deftones, Coheed & Cambria, Rise Against, Circa Survive and Brand New.
Thrice released their first proper full-length, Identity Crisis, in 2001 and quickly stormed to the forefront of the indie music scene as listeners formed what can be described as a cult following. The band went on to release seven highly praised albums – fan favorites The Illusion Of Safety (2002), The Artist In The Ambulance (2003) and Vheissu (2005), the brilliant and eclectic four-part concept album The Alchemy Index: Fire and Water (2007) and Earth and Air (2008), the visceral and raw masterpiece, Beggars (2009), and a grunge-inspired follow-up album, Major/Minor (2011). After a three-year break from writing and touring, the Orange County quartet are back in the studio recording their next full-length which is expected to be released in 2016.
“It’s been four years since we’ve toured the US, and I can’t imagine a much better way to break that drought than to hit the road with a brand new record, and share the stage with our friends in La Dispute. We had a blast playing a bunch of outdoor festivals last year but nothing really beats the feeling of playing in a packed out club,” says drummer Riley Breckenridge.
Stay tuned for more news surrounding the new Thrice album.
