Circa Survive and Thrice hit the road with a co-headlining fall tour

California-based rock band Thrice have spent the last couple of weeks on tour with Circa Survive, co-headlining shows, including an upcoming stop in Boston on November 26.

Formed in 1998, Thrice—composed of vocalist and guitarist Dustin Kensrue, bassist Ed Breckenridge, drummer Riley Breckenridge and guitarist Teppei Teranishi—has released nine studio albums in their almost two decade career. To have such a career cannot come without its successes. More than half of the band’s albums have charted in the top 50 of the Billboard U.S. Top 200 chart and five of the band’s albums have also charted within the top 5 of the U.S. Indie album chart.

Though their origins fall all the way back to the 90s, the band put a hold on their career together in 2012. Each member went their own ways and picked up different jobs, but, in one instance, Riley “entered the corporate world and wore a three-piece suit as a sales rep for a high-end bespoke

tailor” for a year.

“I’m just not cut out for that world,” he said in the band’s Vagrant biography. “It was a soul-sucking experience.”

It was approximately three years ago, around Thanksgiving, where Kensrue sent a group text to the other band members and the return of Thrice began. In 2016, they released their ninth album, To Be Everywhere Is to Be Nowhereand have since continued to make music.

This 22-date tour, along with Circa Survive, will stretch across North America throughout November and December of this year. This tour comes shortly after the band took a break from their summer tour with Deftones and Rise Against. This particular tour, they have special supporting acts Chon and Balance and Composure, whom we featured during their tour stop in Pawtucket, R.I., joining them on the road.

This Saturday they will take over Boston’s infamous House of Blues. Fans can still purchase tickets, but don’t miss the show as these tour stops will be the last of their stops before they head back to the studio and begin recording album number 10.

  • 11/24 – Philadelphia, Pennsylvania @ Electric Factory
