Thrice know what they want to say, and how they want to say it.
Label: Vagrant Records
Released: 27th May 2016
Transitioning between genres and maintaining a solid fan base is difficult, and Thrice are going through that once again with their ninth record, ‘To Be Everywhere Is To Be Nowhere’. Built around the idea that the world is in a state of decline and often out of our control, you can feel the frustration within each and every track. The simplicity of the instrumentation juxtaposes with the complexness of the subject matter, which is oft politically charged.
Thrice – especially after nearly twenty years together – know what they want to say and how they want to say it, be it a casual four-chord rock song, or something more intricate. Even at their calmer moments, such as finale ‘Salt and Shadow’ there’s an unsettled undertone: and rightly so, if anyone is able to bring to attention the injustices in the world, it’s a band as good as Thrice. ‘To Be Everywhere Is To Be Nowhere’ is a solid continuation of a much respected career.
