|THRICE – Live Acoustic In-Store Performance – SOLD OUT
|Friday, May 27th 7:00pm
After long forays into pop-punk and arty post-hardcore, Thrice returns after a hiatus with a sonically grandiose third act. The band’s ninth album, To Be Everywhere Is To Be Nowhere, at times breaks with Thrice’s angular moves and aims straight for the gut with more anthemic songs.
Frontman Dustin Kensrue told NPR that “Black Honey” was one of the first songs Thrice’s members wrote when they got back together. It’s a gloomy and propulsive piece of heavy drama that recalls late-period Cave In, with Kensrue channeling the soulful rasp of Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell more than ever. “Lyrically,” he writes, “the song spawned from an image that popped into my head: someone continually swatting at a swarm of bees to get their honey, but somehow not understanding why they would sting back in return.” (NPR)
Black Honey / Blood on the Sand from the new album.
