Thrice have set an October 30, 2012 release date for Anthology, a 4-Lp/2-Cd Live collection that was recorded during their recent farewell tour.
"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 announced last fall that they were putting the band on hiatus after 13 years together and eight full-length releases and then embarked on a farewell tour.
Along the tour, live audio was recorded at select stops and has now been compiled into Anthology, which will be released on Staple Records/Workhorse Music Group October 30, 2012. The live recording features 24 songs and will be available digitally, on two CDs, and as a limited edition box set containing four LP's.
The LP box set is limited to just 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.
