Since their high school years, Dustin Kensrue and Teppei Teranishi have taken the post-hardcore scene by storm with their genre-defying sounds in Thrice. It has been 15 years since the release of their influential 2005 album, Vheissu, which introduced highly experimental elements of electronic keyboards into their typical alt-rock soundscape.
To celebrate a decade and a half since its release, the band has announced an anniversary tour for this winter. They are touring with Me Without You, Holy Fawn, and fellow Ernie Ball band Drug Church. Check out their official Instagram announcement below.
