Thrice Hint About a Possible Reunion Next Year
In some circles, even the possibility of a Thrice reunion is a holiday miracle.
The melodic post-hardcore outfit out of Irvine, Calif., who have been on hiatus since 2012 have posted a vague teaser on their website that says only "Thrice 2015." Check it out:
Thrice formed out of Irvine, Calif., in 1998 and released seven full-lengths through 2011's 'Major/Minor.' Over the years, the quartet evolved from a straightforward post-hardcore outfit into an experimental and intellectual art-driven band including the ambitious four-EP 'Alchemy Index' which focused on the four elements: earth, wind, fire and water.
They announced they would go on hiatus following their 2012 spring tour, but frontman Dustin Kensrue insisted Thrice weren't breaking up but were "taking a break from being a full-time band." Since then, Kensrue became a worship pastor for the Seattle megachurch, Mars Hill Church, but resigned from the position in September amid controversy surrounding pastor Mark Driscoll. Now that Kensrue's schedule appears clear, many fans are taking Thrice's cryptic message to mean the band will either reunite for a tour or come back together entirely. We'll keep you posted.
