Thrice Signs to Vagrant
Taking an unsullied approach to the writing, recording and production of their upcoming release, the decision to find a new record label was evident and expected for Orange County’s critically lauded, Thrice. Assuming control of their creative direction, Thrice has parted ways with Island records after releasing 2003's The Artist and The Ambulance and 2005's Vheissu, and have signed with Vagrant Records, on which they will release the four-volume Alchemy Index.
The Alchemy Index: Vols. I & II Fire & Water will be released on October 16th, 2007, with The Alchemy Index: Vols. III & IV Earth & Air to be released in Spring of 2008. The specific details about this ambitious project will be revealed over the next few weeks.
Stretching their innovation even further Thrice’s, Dustin Kensrue, Teppei Teranishi, Riley Breckenridge & Ed Breckenridge, expressed their musical diversity resulting in their most stunning effort to date. The Alchemy Index is an uncompromising artistic collection that represents the band’s evolution and shatters conventional boundaries. This quartet prides themselves on continually pushing the envelope creating the dynamic sound they call their own. It is this equilibrium that helps the band develop such richly crafted tracks and in doing so, it raises the bar once again for all that follow.
In support of the first installment of The Alchemy Index, Thrice will be headlining a 9 week – 42 date U.S. tour with Brand New.
Over the course of the next ten weeks, Thrice will release one video snippet per week giving the fan a hint of what is yet to come. Here is the first of ten.
