Thrice Premiere New Song “Summer Set Fire To The Rain”

Thrice have premiered a new song titled “Summer Set Fire To The Rain.” This track is from the band’s new album “Horizons/East,“ which will receive a digital release on September 17 (physical copies out October 8). Frontman Dustine Kensrue commented:

“Much of this song is really close to Ed’s original demo. As we got together and were jamming on the parts, I ended up singing the words ‘Summer set fire to the rain.’ While most of the things I end up singing during the writing process are nonsense, sometimes there are little gems that emerge, and I’ve been trying to pay more attention to them and pull them in to songs when it feels right. In this case, my accidental but poetic framing of being caught in the rain while the sun shines became a central metaphor for the song.”

Thrice Premiere New Song “Robot Soft Exorcism”

Thrice have premiered a new song titled “Robot Soft Exorcism.” This track is from the band’s new album “Horizons/East,“ which will receive a digital release on September 17 (physical copies out October 8). The following was said about the song in a press release:

“The track’s title may sound familiar to those who are aware of David Dark. The American author and teacher coined the term in a twitter thread, exploring a metaphor in an attempt to help us distinguish between harmful and destructive systems and those that inhabit and benefit from them. Thrice’s singer and lyricist Dustin Kensrue picks up the image and breathes life into it throughout the newly released track. Months back Kensrue and Dark spoke at length on the subject, as well as other topics, on Kensrue’s podcast.”

Thrice Release Acoustic Versions Of “Just Breathe” And “A Better Bridge“

Thrice have released a two-song EP featuring acoustic versions of “Just Breathe” and “A Better Bridge.“ Those tracks were previously recorded for SiriusXM‘s Octane. Dustin Kensrue commented:

“It’s always fun to try dig out the skeletons buried in the songs. We nearly always start songs with instrumental parts and craft melodic structure around those parts, and so it’s a process of discovery when we do a stripped-down project like this and cut things away to find the core of the song.”
