Artist of the Day: Thrice

Started as a high school band in California in 1998, Thrice still exists today and even has a hot top-selling album out called Beggars on iTunes. The band’s music early on consisted of distorted guitars, electronic beats and keyboards, specifically heard in the second and third albums, The Illusion of Safety and The Artist in the Ambulance. The Alchemy Index, the band’s fifth album, was based off of themes fire, water, air and earth. The themes are heard throughout the album's lyrics with song titles such as “Silver Wings” and “Open Water” demonstrating slow, yet catchy beats. Beggars was released this morning and has already received spectacular reviews from fans, one fan saying, “Beggars is consistent from start to finish focusing on making each song’s message obvious through the lyrics and music. As long as I can remember, Thrice has had this insatiable need to tell it like it is often pointing fingers at themselves as much as others.”
