Road Sores: Thrice Checks In
Hometown heroes Thrice are currently in the midst of a tour with Brand New, which will be immediately followed by a headline tour with the Dear Hunter and Polar Bear in mid-November. And good news for you audiophiles: It was just announced today that their latest studio album, Beggars (which, if you remember, had some issues with leaking early), will be available on vinyl--in limited edition colors--beginning December 15. The pressing will be restricted to just 2,000 numbered pieces and will also feature a digital copy and an autographed 24-page booklet with liner notes written by the band themselves. Fans in the United States can pre-order the vinyl right here. And those in Europe/the UK, here!
In the meantime, Ed Breckenridge, bass player for the Orange-based Thrice, checked in with us via iPhone (what else?) and weighed in on how the band's choosing to spend some of their downtime.
Hint: It involves gettin' fancy with some toy guns.
