Album of the Week: THRICE

To Be Everywhere Is To Be Nowhere was released earlier this month by Thrice and here at #Blkgrlswurld we can’t stop playing it.

I’ll be the first to admit, I always mistake Thrice for a heavier grunge band of the early 2000s, rocking the grinding tones similar to that of Chevelle or Staind but they aren’t really like that at all. Now that I’m older I realize their true skill rests in producing amazing rock ballads, the smooth voice of Dustin Kensrue taking us through a soulful alternative sound of release and retribution. I even detect some bluegrass elements that remind me of Kings of Leon….mellow? Yes. Its a nice break in playlist of post-hardcore metal.

My favorite tracks from this new album include, “Black Honey” “Blood on the Sand” and the big ballad, “Hurricane”- 30 minutes of this album and I’m swaying side to side in my car under some sort of post-grunge spell.

Thrice performs in NYC this June 16th at Playstation Theater, Times Square . xoxo
