Thrice And Island Records Part Ways

Posted by: Rohan Kohli (06/25/07)
Thrice announced via a recent Myspace bulletin that they have parted ways with Island Records.
Message From The BandWe just wanted to let you all know that we’ve decided to part ways with Island Records. Over the past couple of years, we’ve realized that we have different visions for the band’s future and we both agree that we’d be better off going our separate ways at this point. We’re very grateful for all the help and support they’ve given us for the past four years. Thankfully, they’ve been generous enough to let us keep the record we’re currently recording, and we’re hopeful that this change in plans won’t delay its release. We’re currently in the process of finding a new home, and will let you all know once we do so.

As with every twist and turn of our careers, we made this decision based on trust and belief: belief in what we’re creating and our future, and trust in each other and you all as fans.

We’re excited to finish this album, get it out later this year, go on tour this fall with one of our favorite bands, and for everything our future holds.

Thank you all for your love and support, it means the world to us.

Love,
Dustin, Riley, Teppei, and Ed

I draw a blank when I think of a label that they should be on... The only indie that seems suitable would be EVR. But I have no idea about a major.

I wouldnt think they'd get picked up by another major right away with what they plan on coming out with.

Honestly, is there anyone who didn't see this coming?

No label is going to release a 4 disc album from a band that didn't sell all that well on their last disc. But then again, maybe Thrice was counting on this. Might as well get Island to pay for the recording and then let them give it to you.

I wouldnt think they'd get picked up by another major right away with what they plan on coming out with.

Major labels won't touch another artist that has already been dropped/parted ways from another Major.
