"Thrice in concert, on this tour more than ever, was a career on display," stated Billboard Magazine about the recently completed farewell tour undertaken by Southern California’s THRICE. The Orange County-based four-piece announced a hiatus last fall after 13 years together and eight full-length releases.
"This is a live record that is truly live," commented drummer Riley Breckenridge. "There are no overdubs, no edits and no pitch corrections. We wanted this to be an honest and accurate representation of a show from our Farewell Tour and a memento for our fans, and that's exactly what it is."
Along the tour, live audio was recorded at select stops and has now been compiled into Anthology, which will be released on Staple Records/Workhorse Music Group.
Thrice released their first proper full-length, Identity Crisis, in 2001 and quickly stormed to the forefront of the indie music scene as listeners rejoiced and formed what can only be described as a cult following. Thrice went on to release six highly praised albums – fan favorites The Illusion Of Safety (2002), The Artist In The Ambulance (2003) andVheissu (2005), the brilliant and intricate four-piece concept album The Alchemy Index: Fire and Water (2007) and Earth and Air (2008), and the band-centric masterpiece,Beggars (2009). Thrice released their most recent full length, Major/Minor, last September on Vagrant Records. Thrice has become a staple in the alternative-modern-rock world for nearly ten years now and is known for effortlessly and continuously releasing groundbreaking records.
