Thrice released their ninth studio album this summer entitled To Be Everywhere Is To Be Nowhere. Produced by Eric Palmquist, the album touches on the current state of American politics whereas previous albums were focused on biblical, literary and science-fiction themes. The quartets’ release comes after a their 2012 hiatus yet, listening to the record, it feels as if they haven’t been away.
While the release of the record came as a surprise, the actual sound of it doesn’t. This is a band who has maintained a thirteen year career with this sound, a sound that is so “their own” and, even after a break, this album continues where they left off feeling like just another peice of their jigsaw.
There’s a reason why the name Thrice has resonated on the post-hardcore scene for years with their grit keeping the fans satisfied every time. Although this album only offers a slight, and I mean slight departure from their first album, it still ties in together with their back catalogue. Heavy with lyrics touching upon deep political awareness, yet in a melodic and melancholy way To Be Everywhere Is To Be Nowhere is intense, influential and brilliantly Thrice.
