Epitaph Records has announced that Thrice has joined its roster. Formed in 1998, the Orange County-based four-piece is widely regarded as one of the most innovative rock bands of their generation.
"We grew up listening to and being inspired by Epitaph bands, and have always admired and respected the label’s independent spirit and ethics,” said the band in a statement. “To finally be a part of the family there is an absolute honor, and we couldn’t be more excited about our future with them.”
Thrice has also announced a headline tour this fall with The Bronx and label mates Teenage Wrist. Fan club presale begins Tuesday, June 5 at 10 a.m. EST with the public on sale Friday, June 8 at 12 p.m. local time. Tickets for the presale will be available at thrice.shofetti.com
Featuring frontman Dustin Kensrue, guitarist Teppei Teranishi, bassist Eddie Breckenridge, and drummer Riley Breckenridge, the band made their debut with the 2000 album Identity Crisis. With later releases including their 2003 breakout The Artist in the Ambulance and a duo of concept LPs (2007/8’s The Alchemy Index: Fire and Water and Earth and Air), Thrice took a several-year hiatus starting in 2012. In 2016 Thrice released To Be Everywhere Is to Be Nowhere (via Vagrant Records).
