Thrice was, in theory, done. Started in high school by vocalist Dustin Kensrue and guitarist Teppei Teranishi, they had called it quits in 2012 after putting out eight studio albums (counting The Alchemy Indices I & II as separate from III & IV). Earlier this year, though, the band completed their ninth full-length album, To Be Everywhere is to Be Nowhere, and today they released the first new music from it, a track called “Blood on the Sand.”

TBEITBN is due in stores in May 27.

If you really listen to 'Youth of the Nation,' we still have these tragedies going on. There’s a lot of searching still going on out there."
