Thrice concert album due next week

Orange County, Calif. alt-rock band Thrice announced a hiatus last fall after 13 years together and eight full-length releases.  

Select farewell tour stops were recorded for Anthology, out on Oct. 30. The live recording features 24 songs and will be available digitally, on two CDs, and as a limited edition box set containing four LPs.

The LP box set is limited to 3000 stamped and numbered pieces and will include a 24-page booklet along with 2 black LP’s and 2 white LP’s all on 180 gram vinyl. The track listing and pre-order details will be announced in the coming weeks. 

"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."

Thrice released their first proper full-length, Identity Crisis, in 2001 and went on to release six highly praised albums – The Illusion Of Safety (2002), The Artist In The Ambulance (2003) and Vheissu (2005), the four-piece concept album The Alchemy Index: Fire and Water (2007) and Earth and Air (2008), and the band-centric masterpiece, Beggars (2009).
The most recent full length, Major/Minor, emerged last year.
