The recording of Major/Minor began May 2nd in Santa Monica, CA with Dave Schiffman at Red Bull Studios who mixed “Beggars” and engineered “Vheissu.” As a band that continues to push boundaries, Major/Minor will be no exception. “It’s definitely the most natural progression from record to record that we’ve had in a while. We did The Alchemy Index, which was totally different [from Vheissu]. Then Beggars was kind of the reaction against that. This kind of makes sense coming out of Beggars, but it’s definitely a different record,” says lead singer Dustin Kensrue.

Most recently, Thrice was named one of Alternative Press Magazine’s Must Hear Top 20 Fall Releases and will be performing on Fuel TV’s The Daily Habit as well as doing an acoustic session for Filter Magazine/ Dickies and Guitar Center.
