, Staff

After thirteen years together, Thrice have decided to call it quits. The rockers will say goodbye to the fans with a nationwide tour, that will begin and end in the band’s home state of California, this spring. The band will make their way to Massachusetts for a show at Boston’s Royale on Saturday, May 26. Tickets for the concert will go on sale at noon on Thursday through Ticketmaster for $22.50. Animals As Leaders will open the show.

On the upcoming farewell tour, Thrice will be record select shows for a possible live album release later this year. The band will also be touring in support of their latest album, Major/Minor. Released last September, the band’s eighth studio effort and follow-up to 2009’s Beggars.

“I think we ended up wanting [Major/Minor] to be a little bit more ballsy and in your face,” frontman Dustin Kensrue told The Aquarian last fall. “I don’t think [the album] is necessarily forging new ground – I just think it’s good. It feels good to play… it rules and rocks in a way we’ve never done before. And that’s so exciting to us.”

Thrice is comprised of singer-guitarist Dustin Kensrue, guitarist Teppei Teranishi, bassist Eddie Breckenridge and drummer Riley Breckenridge. In November, the band announced that the band would be taking an indefinite hiatus following the spring tour.
