THRICE ANNOUNCE ANTHOLOGY 4-LP TEST PRESSING EBAY AUCTION TO BENEFIT STAND UP TO CANCER

Double Live Album To Be Released Tuesday, October 30

Exclusive Premiere Now on OCWEEKLY.com

(October 26, 2012) – THRICE announce the launch of an auction to benefit the charitable organization, Stand Up To Cancer.  The Southern California group will be auctioning off one complete set (4 LPS) of test pressings of their about-to-be-released Anthology box set. The test pressings are just one of four sets in existence and will be on black 180-gram vinyl. The set will be signed by the band and will have white cardboard jackets.   The eBay auction begins today herehttp://smarturl.it/anthologyauction.

100% of the final sale price will support Stand Up To Cancer – an initiative to which Thrice donated to at the end of their recent farewell tour.  The group chose Stand Up To Cancer since each of the members have recently seen family members lose the fight to cancer.

Last year Thrice announced their hiatus after 13 years together and the release of eight full-length albums. The band undertook a farewell tour earlier this year and live audio was recorded at select stops and has now been compiled into Anthology. Set to be released on Staple Records/Workhorse Music Group on October 30, 2012, the live recording features 24 songs and will be available digitally, on two CDs, and as a limited edition box set containing four LP’s. The LP box set is limited to just 3000 stamped and numbered pieces and will include a 24-page booklet along with 2 black LP’s and 2 white LP’s all on 180 gram vinyl.

Fans can listen to an exclusive stream of the entire album on the Orange County Weekly website: OCWEEKLY.com.

About the Stand Up To Cancer Initiative

Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C)—a program of the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF), a 501©(3) charitable organization—raises funds to hasten the pace of groundbreaking translational research that can get new therapies to patients quickly and save lives. In the fall of 2007, a group of women whose lives have all been affected by cancer in profound ways began working together to marshal the resources of the media and entertainment industries in the fight against this disease. http://www.standup2cancer.org

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.

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.
