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.”
