Thrice and Circa Survive are about to prove why they are two of the hardest working bands in the rock music world.

The over-a-month-long tour will kick off on Nov. 2 at the City National Civic in San Jose, California and wrap up on Dec. 8 at Myth Live in Saint Paul, Minnesota.

Several days after Live Nation teased a massive summer tour announcement from two big bands, the identities of those groups have been confirmed. On Monday (Feb. 6), the Deftones and Rise Against announced a huge, joint, North American summer tour. The excursion will kick off on June 9 at Huntington Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island in Chicago and wrap up a month later on July 9 at the Ak-Chin Pavilion in Phoenix.

“Every once in awhile you get to share the stage with a band so powerful they make you work harder,” Rise Against said in a statement. “After conspiring for years, we’re excited to finally share the road with such an epic band. We can’t wait to put Deftones and Rise Against fans under the same roof in 2017.”

Mirroring Rise Against’s statement about the upcoming tour, the Deftones wrote on Facebook: “We’ve been talking to Rise Against about touring together for a while now. Finally, everything aligned and we get to spend the summer playing shows with our friends. We couldn’t be more excited and can’t wait to see you at the shows.”

Joining them on the road for the month-long tour will be Thrice, who released their ninth studio album, To Be Everywhere Is to Be Nowhere, back in May of 2016. Frank Iero and the Patience and Three Trapped Tigers will also open for the Deftones and Rise Against during the tour, but on selected dates. The full list of tour dates can be seen below.

It’s been a few months since Thrice released their new album, To Be Everywhere Is To Be Nowhere, and began touring behind the new release. Now, three months after the record hit stores, the band has given fans the chance to watch an exclusive acoustic performance of “Black Honey.” On Wednesday (Aug. 17), the official video of frontman Dustin Kensrue and guitarist Teppei Teranishi performing the acoustic version of the track was uploaded onto YouTube by Sixthman.

The original performance took place on June 10 at Sixthman’s offices in Atlanta, but has just been uploaded onto the video-sharing site. In addition to “Black Honey,” the duo also performed other tracks as part of the Sixthman Sessions; a series created to celebrate Sixthman’s 15-year anniversary as industry leaders in music festivals at sea. Watch the performance below.

Thrice has been keeping busy since the release of To Be Everywhere Is to Be Nowhere. Earlier this summer, they embarked on the first leg of their North American tour for the album. Currently, they are across the pond, touring, and will return in mid-September for the second leg of their North American tour.

image

Thrice’s ninth studio record is set to be released in a couple of days, so why not release another new song from it to tide fans over until then. During the weekend, the recently-reunited band released a third song from their impending new album, To Be Everywhere Is to Be Nowhere. The new song is titled “Death from Above” and can currently be streamed below.

“Death from Above” will join “Black Honey” and lead single “Blood on the Sand” on To Be Everywhere Is to Be Nowhere.

The complete list of tour stops can be seen here. To Be Everywhere Is to Be Nowhere is Thrice’s first record since coming back from their three-year hiatus. This record also marks the follow-up to 2011’s Major/Minor.

Thrice release video for new single, ‘Black Honey’

image

Last month, Thrice debuted their new single, “Black Honey,” on NPR and now, the group has released the music video for the new track. On Tuesday (May 17), the recently reunited band premiered the music video for “Black Honey” which ended up being a little creepy but fascinating at the same time. The clip begins with a station wagon being driven down a road.

From nowhere, a kid appears on the street so the driver of the automobile decides to pick him up. At first everything seems okay, but then, things start to take a weird turn. At first, the driver of the car was Thrice frontman Dustin Kensrue, but as the camera shifts from the driver to the kid, the identity of the driver changes from other Thrice band members to random people. As the trip continues, the kid’s eyes start to glow until they reach a random location which appears to be e a corn field. Check out the video below.

“Black Honey” will join lead single “Blood on the Sand” on the Thrice’s upcoming, ninth studio album, To Be Everywhere Is to Be Nowhere. To Be Everywhere Is to Be Nowhere is set to be released on May 27 through Vagrant Records. In support of the new album, the California-founded band announced in January plans to hit the road with La Dispute and Gates.

The North American trek is set to begin on June 3 at the Shrine Expo Hall in Los Angeles and wrap up less than a month later on June 25 at The Summit Music Hall in Denver.

Thrice tease fans with new clip

thrice

At the beginning of the year, Thrice confirmed that they were currently working on a brand new album; their ninth studio record. Since that social media confirmation back in early January, little has been revealed with the exception of pictures from the recording studio. On Tuesday (March 15), things changed when the band took to social media, once more, to release a 15-second clip. Like any fans who are eagerly awaiting their favorite band’s new record, speculations have already begun on whether this is one of the new tracks the band has been showcasing on Instagram.

Check out the short clip below.

The newly released clip comes on the heels of the California band announcing a summer tour. The trek will find the five-piece visiting a slew of North American cities throughout the month of June. The tour, which will also feature La Dispute and Gates, will kick off on June 3 at the Shrine Expo Hall in Los Angeles and wrap up on June 25 at the Summit Music Hall in Denver. The complete list of upcoming summer tour dates can be seen here.

The still-untitled record will be the follow-up to the band’s 2011 release,  Major/Minor.

Thrice to Hit the Road with La Dispute, Gates

thrice

Just a week after teasing that a brand new album is currently in the works, Thrice has given their fans even better news. On Monday (Jan. 19), the California band, who recently came out of hiatus, announced plans to hit the road this summer. The North American trek is set to begin on June 3 at the Shrine Expo Hall in Los Angeles and wrap up less than a month later on June 25 at The Summit Music Hall in Denver.

Heading out on the road alongside Thrice will be La Dispute and Gates. Pre-sale tickets for the shows are currently available on the band’s website here. The complete list of upcoming tour dates can be seen below.

The news of the upcoming summer excursion comes more than a year after speculation of the band’s return began. At the end of 2014, the band had posted an image on their Tumblr with “Thrice” and “2015” written on it. At the time, fans began to gossip that the message meant they would be reuniting for the tenth anniversary of their fourth studio album, Vheissu. Sadly, the group did not go out on a Vheissu tenth anniversary tour, but they did play several shows including the resurrection of Taste of Chaos in California back in October of 2015.

Thrice Officially Working on New Album

thrice

It’s official, work on Thrice’s new album has begun. Over the weekend, an image on Instagram got fans of the California-based band super excited and ready to pre-order the still-untitled record. On Friday (Jan. 8), drummer Riley Breckenridge posted a collage on the social media platform which featured three images of his drum kit and one from outside the recording booth. In the caption, he revealed that he had completed tracking the drums for the impending new album. Breckenridge also confirmed that “guitars, bass, keys, and other goodies” will be recorded “next week” aka this current week.

Check out the image below.

Breckenridge isn’t the only one to have posted something from the recording studio. Guitarist Teppei Teranishi had also posted an image from the recording studio, captioning it, “this is fun,” making reference to the hot mess of cables. One thing that should be pointed out is that both musicians used the hashtag, #TBEITBN in each of their images. We reserve the right to assume that this is the acronym for the new album. Coincidentally, many commentators agree with us because in the comments section, you can see several of them taking guesses as to what the acronym may actually mean.

No matter what, thrice fans can rest assure that a new album will be out this year, after all, the band confirmed that news back in December. This new record will not only be Thrice’s ninth studio album, but also their first album since they came out of their short hiatus. Their last album was 2011’s Major/Minor.

Inaugural Wrecking Ball Fest Revise Line-Up Time Slots

Ever wish you had the power to change a music festival’s schedule just because certain artists that you would like to see play at the same exact time?

This seems to be one of the biggest issues with music festivals that have line-up that feature great artists, but a crazy scheduling process.

As much as you complain about the time slots conflicting, festivals and their organizers really don’t care and in a way tell you to take it or leave it.

Well, as it turns out, there is a music festival out there that has taken the attendees complaints to heart and decided to change their daily schedule.

Wrecking Ball revealed today an updated daily schedule after listening to fans complain about the time slots conflicting.

Why would you have both main stage performance times start and end at the same time? Same for the other two stages.

It looks like the Atlanta festival decided it would be wise to change the times on the schedule so concert goers can at least see 15 minutes of the main bands later in the evening.

Check out the newly revised daily schedule below.

The Wrecking Ball Festival will hit Atlanta during the weekend of Aug. 8-9. The festival is in honor of Atlanta concert venue, The Masquerade, celebrating its 25th anniversary.
