In late spring on this year, Thrice put out their first album comprised of new material since 2011’s “Major/Minor” and despite taking an extended hiatus, they proved that they are back and better than ever. “To Be Everywhere Is To Be Nowhere” is another amazing Thrice album, maybe slightly more melodic than previous efforts, but the lyrics hit just as hard.
I have fond memories of them playing at the bar I used to work at in Thunder Bay in 2008; I hadn’t really listened to them much beyond a few singles here or there, but I remember being struck by how tight they were as a band, as well as Dustin Kensrue’s vocals (despite him being sick at the time). Of course, they were extremely kind which is always a bonus, and they definitely converted me as a fan that night.
Listen to “Black Honey” from “To Be Everywhere Is To Be Nowhere”, as well as “Image of the Invisible” from 2005’s “Vheissu”. You can purchase any of Thrice’s albums via iTunes, and while you’re there, be sure to check out Dustin Kensrue’s solo material!
