Thrice Announce Album and Tour Plans

(PR) Southern California quartet Thrice announce that their sixth studio album will be entitled Beggars. The self-produced disc is scheduled for an October release on Vagrant Records.

Asked about the inspiration behind the title, vocalist/guitarist Dustin Kensrue, commented, "I think we are at most times deluded in thinking that we are totally responsible for our circumstances, but in the end almost everything is beyond our control to a high degree and we can't even be sure we will wake up tomorrow. Whether you believe that God created you for a purpose, or that the world is governed by blind chance, everything in life is a gift at its core; we are beggars all."

The band has dropped clues about the new album on their studio blog www.thrice.net and the title was hidden in a word scramble Posted last week. Thrice will be appearing at select dates of the Warped Tour 2009 (see all dates below).
