thrice tour poster

Southern California’s THRICE today announces two additional dates on their farewell spring tour.  The band’s final shows in Anaheim and Los Angeles sold out within hours but fans will now have two more chances to the see the band in Anaheim and Santa Ana, California. An exclusive Ducat King presale begins today for these two shows at 12PM local time at http://thrice.ducatking.com. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Thursday, April 26 at 12PM local time. See all dates below.

After thirteen years together and eight full-length releases to their name, Thrice will begin their final tour together on May 4 in San Diego, California. Supporting Thrice on all dates will be Animals As Leaders and O’Brother.

Last November singer/guitarist Dustin Kensrue, guitarist Teppei Teranishi, bassist Eddie Breckenridge and drummer Riley Breckenridge announced that the band would be taking an indefinite hiatus following this upcoming spring tour.

Thrice will be recording live audio at select stops along the tour for a live CD / LP that is now confirmed for a Fall 2012 release. More details will be announced as they become available. The humanitarian organization Invisible Children continues their six-plus year relationship with Thrice and will be represented along the tour.

Thrice released their first proper full-length, Identity Crisis, in 2001 and quickly stormed to the forefront of the indie music scene as listeners rejoiced and formed what can only be described as a cult following. Thrice went on to release six highly praised albums – fan favorites The Illusion Of Safety (2002), The Artist In The Ambulance (2003) and Vheissu (2005), the brilliant and intricate four-piece concept album The Alchemy Index: Fire and Water (2007) and Earth and Air (2008), and the band-centric masterpiece, Beggars (2009). Thrice released their most recent full length, Major/Minor, last September on Vagrant Records.  Thrice has become a staple in the alternative-modern-rock world for nearly ten years and is known for effortlessly and continuously releasing groundbreaking records.

Heaven's Metal: An Oral History of the Genesis of Christian Metal

Heaven's Metal

When rock emerged from blues and 'heavy metal' began to surface, faith-based metal acts also rose to start their own journeys. Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
