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.

The Pop-Punk Silver Lining

"I would hope from all of this madness we will come out of it and we're better equipped to understand and have compassion for each other." Releasing a new album during an historical epoch is certainly unique, and, for Neck Deep's 'All Distortions are Intentional,' the band looks to the future with a hopeful – and, yes, unique – approach.

Let's Get to the Heart of Things

"Music is our everything; we live and die for it. It’s our way to be human, so making songs that make that deep human connection is really important for The Used." In a new age of releasing music in a socially-distanced world, Bert McCracken and The Used face the challenge of human connection when physical connection is taboo. HM contributing writer Andrew Voigt dives in with McCracken about The Used's new album, Heartwork, his absence on social media, and why 2020 will be the year of rice.
