Riley Breckenridge (Thrice) is going to be writing a bi-weekly column for our friends over at PureVolume. You can read his first column here.

Manchester Orchestra posted up a blog about their 1/2 of the upcoming split with Thrice.
Message from AndyPEOPLE! it's andy. i wanted to take a minute and thank you for the response the last few days to the news about some "new" music. we are so stoked to get this thing officially out into the world, even if there are only a couple hundred copies available. the story behind the making of our half of this record is a pretty cool one. i thought i would share with you the history behind why we decided to record what is undeniably THE BEST 14 minute stoner-rock version of "Don't Speak" by No Doubt to ever exist.

when manchester was writing mean everything to nothing i was in the middle...

Our friends over at PureVolume have yet another video exclusive with Riley Breckenridge of Thrice, which you can view here. In this video, Riley discusses the band's new Anthology release a bit more, as well as the band's best Halloween costumes.

PropertyOfZack recently interviewed Riley from Thrice and they discussed the bandís Anthology release, a new band with him, Ed, and Mike from Hey Mercedes, and much more here.
From The InterviewEd and I have been working on music at our little rehearsal space. Ed, myself, and Michael Schumacher, who was in Hey Mercedes and has done front of house sound for us, have been working together. The three of us have similar taste in music and can work together in a way that works really well creatively.

Thrice will release their Anthology set on October 30th.
Jason Tate on 08/20/12 - 11:36 AM
Dustin's posted an explanation on twitter about his new project, The Modern Post.
From the PostThe reason I want to make this clear, is that it would be sad to think that some of you would think that I am "going Christian," meaning, making poor music just for Christians, and ceasing to make music that engages with culture at large. I assure you that I hate the Christian art ghetto more than most, if not all of you. As I see it, Christians should make good art, that shows forth truth and beauty for all, or make art that is for a specific purpose within the church. Making subpar cheesy art for Christians to consume comfortably is a tragedy for everyone.

Check out our interview with Thrice here.
From The InterviewAs far as the lyrics are concerned, I've always wanted Dustin to sing about what mattered to him. You want a vocalist/frontman to be truly passionate about what he/she is singing about; if they aren't passionate about it, it's very easy to see though in a lot of cases. Even if I don't agree with his worldview, or if I'm not a Calvinist, I don't think it matters. I've been happy to play in this band for years, and I want him to sing about what matters to him, and that's the bottom line.

Brian Fallon from The Gaslight Anthem has written a blog in support of Dustin Kensrue (Thrice).
From The BlogI guess Iím gonna have to change this blogís name to "Sticking Up For People.com."

So Mr. Duston Kensrue feels led by The Lord to leave Thrice and play worship music. Awesome. I love that heís doing that.

I understand some Thrice fans might be bummed that they broke up, but bands do that from time to time and it happens. You have to keep in mind that itís not your band. These people have lives that are more important than the thing they do that we love and admire. Real life happens to people in the spotlight.

In this article, Dustin Kensrue discusses why his family is moving to Bellevue and how he felt he was called to dedicate himself to playing worship music. Thrice played its final show last week.
From the ArticleOver the last few years God, continued to give me a bigger and bigger vision of what I eventually Iím called to do, and given me the audacious goal of shaking things up in worship music culture and the church at large. I have a passion to see more songs that are 1) more cross/Christ-centered, and also 2) engage the culture directly, rather than endlessly recycling the Christian subculture. Despite my fears at failing and my doubts in my abilities, I am firmly convinced that this...

Dustin Kensrue gave some farewell words to the fans at Thrice's last show together before their hiatus. He told the crowd, "We'll see you in the future at some undisclosed time" before chants of "Thank you Thrice!" The band closed its set with "Anthology." There's a video in the replies.

Dustin Kensrue of Thrice, discusses the hiatus, band dynamics, faith, and having Invisible Children out on tour with them.
From the InterviewI think the initial reaction when I talk about it has been a different feel because people do have those questions, theyíve heard this or that. So I try every night just to address that weíre not unaware of these things that are going around and we wouldnít have them out with us if we didnít have confidence that they were totally on the level. I mean, there was just some unfortunately timing with some stuff, and anytime anyone or anything gets elevated to such a high profile thereís just intense scrutiny and also a lot of ill will mostly...

Tonight, I will be seeing Thrice on their farewell tour stop in Austin. This week I've written up a look back on a band that has challenged me over the years to open up to new sounds and structures of what a band can become. You can read my column here. It may not have been Thrice, but what band have you had a hard time with following through their career, but end up coming around to as the months and years have gone by? As you've opened up to that band, what other bands and genres have they opened you up to as well?

Check out another interview with Riley from Thrice talking about the events that led to the band's decision to go on hiatus.
From the InterviewI canít remember exactly when. I feel like the writing had kind of been on the walls for a while. The amount of touring that weíve done over the past two or three years has gone down considerably and in large part that is due to Dustin and Teppei having growing families and young kids at home. You know, Dustin has got three kids, Teppei has got two and has a third on the way. Itís really tough for them to be home at all, really. So the amount of touring we have done has kind of gone down. Itís something that I didnít think of the realm of...

Riley from Thrice mentioned in a recent interview that he does believe the band will record and tour again in the future.
From the InterviewWe still want to do this, we just can't do it right now. We will write music together again, we will play shows together again but right now it's important for us to do other things. It's scary and exciting at the same time.

This week, Riley Breckenridge's weekly column 3hree Things deals with the topic of Thrice's impending Farewell Tour.
From the BlogSaying that there are a lot of unforgettable memories packed into those songs, be it the writing and recording of them, or touring on them and playing them live, seems like a gross understatement to me. There's really no way to explain it from this side. Fourteen years is more than a third of my life. That's nuts to me. And as I listen to and play along with these songs, those memories rush by like when my elementary school teacher would leave the projector on as he/she rewound a filmstrip we watched. They move by too quickly to hang on to any or all of...
