Like many of you, Jason and I are pretty huge fans of Thrice and we celebrate every release in its discography. So it was quite the honor to speak Riley Breckenridge on the latest AbsolutePunk.net Podcast episode. In this episode, we break down the entire Thrice discography (with Riley sharing a lot of cool stories and inside information), talk about the band's current status, and we even fit in a little baseball talk.

You can subscribe to this podcast in a variety of ways: via iTunes, your own RSS feed (instructions below), or streaming/downloading the mp3 in the replies. You can also find our previous episodes on iTunes and SoundCloud. As always, we hope you enjoy.

Thrice's The Artist In The Ambulance was released ten years ago today. "Paper Tiger" is still the sickest song.

Six songs, six minutes, all inspired by #66. If you haven't heard Puig Destroyer (featuring members of Thrice, Curl Up And Die, and Kowloon Walled City) yet, then today's your lucky day. We are stoked to be premiering a new song titled "Stop Fucking Bunting." It's 57 seconds of pure anti-bunting fever and it's off the band's new EP, which is available here. You can also pre-order it on 7" vinyl via The Ghost Is Clear Records here. In the meantime, brush up on Yasiel Puig and check the track out in the replies.

PropertyOfZack has posted a feature on Thrice's The Artist In The Ambulance with commentary from Ed and Teppei from the band. The feature can be found here.
By intentions I mean that we wanted to push oursleves, experiment, and build songs that we though had a unique place in the world. Not everyone would agree with me on this, but I think that music like any art has itís basic likable elements, but really makes a piece of music, or art, or whatever, special is the elements of it that make it unique.

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...

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.
