Many sad feels were had when Thrice announced that they would soon be going on hiatus. I can’t say I was ever a fan, but I never really gave them a shot because I foolishly and blindly associated them with that whole so-called ‘emo’ scene when I was in high school because of Warped Tour and the post-hardcore crowd they were associated with. It turns out the band were totally respectable. I was a fickle 15 year old; logic dictated that the dude in class with the Hawthorne Heights shirt couldn’t possibly listen to anything I’d be interested in.

But my teenage nonsense aside, I know a lot of people who enjoy them some Thrice, including our co-editor Chris ‘Disinformasiya’. As such, I feel obligated to inform you of their Farewell Tour coming up in May featuring support from a band more universally accepted around these parts, Animals As Leaders. It should be a good show, and they’re being fairly thorough with their itinerary, touring extensively for a little over a month.
