Thank you for the thank you

Sometimes you receive a gift so beautiful and thoughtful that you hardly know what to do or say.  This is one of those times. 

Our close friends at Invisible Children just sent us a couple videos of members from two of their initiatives—kids from the Legacy Scholarship Program and women from the Mend program—who wrote and sang songs directly for us and our friends in Circa Survive and Edward Sharpe, thanking us for our work and support.  We hardly deserve such an incredibly beautiful gift, and all we can say is - thank YOU.  Your tenacity and unrelenting hope, courage, faith, and love continue to be a daily inspiration for all of us.  

We’ve been working really closely for a number of years now with Invisible Children and we’ve never been able to see the fruits of our labor so tangible as this.  It really sheds a new light and reinvigorates our fire to support this incredible organization and the causes for for which they stand.  

Humbly,

Teppei/Thrice

Farewell Tour Details, Tickets, & Song Poll

Hey folks,

By now you’ve probably heard that we announced the dates for our “Farewell Tour” this May/June with Animals As Leaders (and another very special guest). If you missed those dates, you can find them here. If you’d like to buy tickets, you can do that here. Ticket pre-sales began yesterday and tickets will be made available to the general public on Thursday March 1. We’d be honored and thankful if you’d join us for one (or more) of the shows on this last tour for the foreseeable future. Please don’t delay, because these tickets will go quickly.

It’s never been easy for us to decide what to play on tour. And now, with eight LPs and a handful of B-sides and covers under our collective belts, and given the circumstances of this tour, it’s as daunting a task as it’s ever been.

So we’re asking you to help us out.

Click the following link: http://vagrant.com/thrice/tourpoll/

Pick as many songs as you’d like, and we’ll use the info we gather from the poll to put together the best setlists we possibly can. Keep in mind that we’ll be recording several of these shows for a live album that we hope to put out later this year, so choose wisely.

We’re really looking forward to this tour and want to thank you all for your support, whether you’ve been onboard since ‘98 or just heard us for the first time yesterday. We couldn’t have done this without you guys.

See you in a couple of months.

-Riley & Thrice

An announcement from Dustin

Thrice is not breaking up.  If nothing has broken us up by now, I doubt anything ever could.
However, we will be taking a break from being a full-time band, and the upcoming tour in the Spring will be the last one for the foreseeable future.
Playing music for the past 13 years with Riley, Ed, and Teppei has been such a gift.  We have been able to see the world, share music with thousands and thousands of people, and make records with a variety of talented and inspiring people.  The four of us have been through many highs and lows and overcome them together.  I value their friendship, and it has been a great priviledge to play alongside them for so long.  They are truly an amazingly gifted group of people, and the ways we’ve grown together as people and musicians has been a joy to experience.
Along the way we have adapted to many changing situations, especially the growing families of both Teppei and myself, but it has been harder and harder for me with each step.  I have three little girls now under the age of 5, and it is a huge strain on my family and I when I’m away for several weeks at a time.  The way we’ve been doing things for a while is simply not sustainable for me anymore.
I don’t know what the future looks like for Thrice, or for any of us individually.  I do know that I would love to make more music in the future with them, as well as play some shows or short tours, but for the time being, I need to step out of the role of full time touring/recording musician, and will do so after this tour.  I will continue to make music in various capacities I’m sure, and continue in my work as a Worship Director at Mars Hill Church in Orange County.
I know this will be very disappointing news to many people, and for that I am truly sorry.  The amount of support and love we’ve been given in our career is staggering and overwhelming.  I know I’m biased, but I think we have the best fans in the world.
This upcoming tour should be a lot of fun.  We are planning for it to be somewhat of a celebration of the last 13 years and I’m sure we’ll be breaking out a bunch of songs that have been buried in the archives.  I hope to see you out there to celebrate with us.
I never expected to be able to do any of this, let alone do it for 13 years, with such amazing bandmates, such gifted and hard working crew and management, and such incredible and loyal fans.  
Thank you all.

Here are some pics from our Halloween show in Denver on 10/30 with La Dispute, O’ Brother and Moving Mountains.

Halloween shows are always a special time in the Thrice camp, and this one was as good or better than any of the prior years. A chaotic blend of latex masks, loud music, sweat and bad beer. Good times all around.
