there aren’t many better things thrice does than turn their electric songs acoustic. and for fans of major/minor, baeblemusic put together a session of a handful of m/m songs spliced with interviews and all that good stuff. head over to baeble to watch the whole thing.
thrice – baeble acoustic sessions
the boys in thrice have released a performance based music video for their major/minor single, and i could’ve sworn the single was “yellow belly.” no problem here, because “promises” is much better. love the blurred visuals here. then again, thrice could’ve had a collage of rainbows and dead horse fetuses and i probably would’ve thought it was heartbreaking and innovative.

So at this point, this is the third (heh) Thrice interview to date for weworemasks, and it was just as fun as the first two times. I’ve never been shy about how much I like this band, so it was cool to get the chance to sit down with the bassist, Eddie Breckenridge, to talk all things tour, Major/Minor and what album he’d be interested in playing in full for an anniversary if the opportunity came up.
And I know it’s a bit dated, but the tour’s just starting and I got around to transcribing the interview today. Hit the jump and pass it along!

As a reader of this blog, no one should be surprised to see Thrice show recaps on the reg. I’ve seen nearly every Thrice tour in Texas since 2001, and the current tour in support of Major/Minor is #20. That’s right, I’ve seen ONE band TWENTY times, and I’ve never gotten tired of it. Excuse my clearly biased glow and praise of this band, and hit the jump for the recap.
Thrice has pretty much been my favorite band of the last 10 years. Considering I’ve seen them 19 times (soon to be 20) since 2001, I wouldn’t say that’s too far off. Don’t worry, I’m not as biased for Thrice as I am for you know who. Hit the jump for the review.
Oh and there’s two more coming this week.
as thrice’s eighth (do we count the alchemy index pairs as two separate releases?!) studio release hits stores tomorrow, people like myself are very excited. in the meantime, head over to AOL music to stream their latest. RIYL: BEGGARS AND DUSTIN KENSRUE’S VOICE.
thrice – major/minor [full album stream]
here’s another, fantastic song from thrice’s upcoming major/minor record, which they premiered via fuelTV’s the daily habit. note to fuel: get better a/v equipment. this looks like it was shot via a pretty nice webcam.
one time for studio versions! after hearing this song a couple times in live, youtube form, it’s nice to put the studio touches (and lyrics) to a song from major/minor. loving the guitar tone here.
new thrice? don’t mind if i do! at a recent show this past saturday in santa ana, thrice premiered a trio of new songs aside from “anthology.” cannot wait to hear the studio recordings, considering the quality of these. major/minor is in stores on september 20th.
two more videos below the jump.
dustin kensrue’s rolling solo here, but he performs a new thrice song from major/minor titled “anthology,” and i can’t even begin to think where they’re headed for album #7. this is on some counting crows shit.
hit the sidebar of youtube to watch all the videos from the uploader. the entire solo set from a nike US open of surfing event is ready to be seen.
lovely news today, as thrice dropped off the first release from major/minor, their 7th studio LP dropping on september 20th, 2011. also worth noting is that they have a slew of headlining dates, which includes a few texas dates. looking forward to everything.
i’m definitely feelin a beggars vibe, and i’m glad to hear the band progressing from that anchor. see the tour dates after the jump.
thrice – yellow belly
thrice, you’re pretty much my favorite band – but this is some of the stupidest artwork i’ve seen. that being said, see ya in my top 5 at the end of the year.
