The four-piece veteran rock band known as Thrice are rolling into New York City on Friday, with a scheduled concert at Terminal 5 to start their busy weekend in the metropolitan area. Thrice, along with fellow alt-rock outfit Circa Survive, have been on the road together since the beginning of the month with their co-headlining North American tour. The current fall run will also see the two bands playing Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, N.J. on Saturday and Sunday.
The two post-hardcore bands bring quite the one-two punch on their current fall tour, which will see them continuing to perform around the country over the next few weeks before wrapping up on Dec. 8 in Maplewood, Minn. They’re also set to headline a pair of shows at The Electric Factory in Circa Survive’s hometown of Philadelphia next weekend on Nov. 24-25.
Thrice released their ninth studio album back in May of last year with To Be Everywhere Is to Be Nowhere. The album, which respectively peaked at No. 1 on Billboard’s US Vinyl Albums chart, was their first since 2011’s Major/Minor. It was also the California band’s first studio effort since taking a two year hiatus following their spring tour back in 2012.
Circa Survive are also celebrating their recent studio release on their current tour. Their sixth studio LP, The Amulet, was released earlier this fall on Sept. 22 via Hopeless Records. The album has since reached No. 4 on Billboard’s Top Rock Albums U.S. chart.
“We have a good understanding of who we are as musicians individually and as a group,” Thrice singer/guitarist Dustin Kensrue said in an interview shortly before the release of To Be Everywhere. “I don't know that this new record sounds like a huge jump … It feels comfortable for us, not in a lazy way, but like, ‘Yes, this is who we are, this is what we're playing.’ The next record will probably sound different because we hate doing the same thing twice.”
