Orange County-based Thrice now have a second leg of dates ready to announce for their long-awaited headlining tour this summer.  Thrice was recently forced to cancel their co-headlining tour with Manchester Orchestra due to a family emergency, but they’re now prepared to get back on the road with Kevin Devine, Bad Veins, and The Dig.  The whole shebang kicks off in San Francisco, CA on June 3, and winds down closer to their home turf, in Pomona, CA on July 17.  Thrice is currently promoting their sixth and latest studio album, Beggars (09/09 Vagrant).  Presale tickets for the second leg of the tour are available May 11 at 1:00 PM local time in each city via http://thrice.ducatking.com.  Tickets go on sale to the public on May 17.

Thrice have received numerous accolades for Beggars, including the #5 spot on Alternative Press’ “Best Albums of 2009” list.  Also known to consistently deliver a great live show, OC Weekly more recently named Thrice’s Nov 25 date at House of Blues Anaheim in their “Top 10 Orange County Concerts of 2009.”  Additionally, the OC Music Awards nominated Thrice for Best Album, Best Alternative, and Best Rock.  Harnessing their own creative powers, Thrice have recorded both their 2007/2008 double release The Alchemy Index and 2009’s Beggars at their own studio in Orange County, with guitarist Teppei Teranishi in the producer’s chair.

Thrice is Dustin Kensrue – vocals/guitar, Teppei Teranishi – guitar/piano, Edward Breckenridge – bass, and Riley Breckenridge – drums.

HM covers from over the years

HM Magazine Turns 35

In 1985, Doug Van Pelt photocopied a letter-sized sheets of paper, bound them together, and handed them out in person on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. It's all digital now, but, along the way, Van Pelt stirred up quite a few waves, played some seriously heavy music, and made a few friends along the way. Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.

My Epic performing their last final show before COVID-19

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.

Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.
