Thrice announce final tour dates, live album plans ahead of 'indefinite hiatus'
Three dozen stops end in June
Thrice are going on an "indefinite hiatus," but not before making around three dozen final tour stops in the U.S.
Singer/guitarist Dustin Kensrue, guitarist Teppei Teranishi, bassist Eddie Breckenridge and drummer Riley Breckenridge will be going on a farewell trek starting May 4 in San Diego and ending on June 16 in Los Angeles, near their hometown of Irvine, Calif. All dates will feature instrumental metal band Animals As Leaders as openers. More supporting acts will be announced.
Ticket pre-sale begins tomorrow (Feb. 23) with general onsale beginning March 1. Attendees at select stops have a chance to witness the making-of a "proposed live album," due late this year.
The Immaculate Noise-favored post-hardcore group last released "Major/Minor" in September. Animals As Leaders dropped their latest "Weightless" in November.
Thrice announced they'd be "taking a break" in November after 13 years together; Kensrue emphasized that "Thrice is not breaking up. If nothing has broken us up by now, I doubt anything ever could."
He said that he and other members in the band have wanted to turn their focus on their families, though he hinted that he will continue making music in other capacities (he released two solo albums in 2007 and 2008). The songwriter, a Christian, will continue his duties as Worship Director at Mars Hill Church in Orange County.
