Biography

Irvine, Los Angeles CA, United States (1998 – 2012)

Thrice was an American / band that formed in Irvine, California in 1998. The lineup consists of Dustin Kensrue (vocals and guitar), Teppei Teranishi (guitar, keys), Eddie Breckenridge (bass), and Riley Breckenridge (drums).

In 2000, Thrice signed with Sub City Records and released two LP’s. The first, Identity Crisis (2000), only received 1.5 stars in the AMG review and little buzz. The second, The Illusion Of Safety (2002), was widely acclaimed and received attention from major record labels. Even though Thrice’s music has always included some influences, The Illusion of Safety contained a heavier sound. The album was recorded in Beltsville, Maryland and the track The Beltsville Crucible reflects this.

In 2003 Thrice signed up with Island Records and released The Artist In The Ambulance, which featured more structured songs while keeping true to their hardcore influences. In 2005 a DVD outlining their entire career to date was released under the title If We Could Only See Us Now. It included a CD with live tracks from the Apple Store and various b-sides.

Thrice released their fourth full-length album, Vheissu, on October 18, 2005. The album was characterized by many critics as being experimentally different, using non-traditional Thrice elements in the process. From keyboard melodies (“For Miles”) to Japanese music-box undertones (“Music Box”) to chain gang chant choruses (“The Earth Will Shake”), Vheissu introduced a new sound to the band’s post-hardcore roots.
