This event is all ages
American rock band founded in 2004 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Thrice was conceived as an Alternative-Rock Punk-Pop band in August 1998 by bass player Eddie Breckenridge and drummer Riley Breckenridge; the two brothers teamed up with high-school friends vocalist+guitarist Dustin Kensrue and guitarist Teppei Teranishi in their native Irvine, California USA.
After putting out a self-released EP, "First Impressions", plus the full-length album "Identity Crisis" in the summer of 2000, they inked a deal with Sub City Records who re-issued their debut full-length disc in March of 2001; the quartet spent the remainder of the year on the road touring with Midtown.
The group's second album, "The Illusion Of Safety", was released in February 2002, it broke into the top 20 of the Billboard's Independent chart, setting the stage for their breakthrough LP.
Four months later Thrice were picked-up by Island Records; after that they performed a handful of live shows with Face To Face and Coheed And Cambria as well as stints on The Warped Tour.
Their third album, "The Artist In The Ambulance", was finally released in August of 2003, the Island set peaked at #16 on The Billboard Top 200 chart led by the single "All That's Left", which reached the #24 spot on The Modern Rock list; the follow-up single, "Stare At The Sun", was another alt-Rock radio top 40 hit for Thrice.
In October 2005, the band released their fourth studio album, "Vheissu", which peaked at #15 on The Billboard 200 chart producing the Mainstream Rock top 30 hit "Image Of The Invisible".
Thrice next project is "The Alchemy Index", a 4-volume collection spread between two releases comprised of four EPs, each devoted to one of the classical elements in nature: fire, water, air and earth. For the California rockers, it's the realization of a year-long process of writing and recording, which was done primarily in the band's own studio and engineered by guitarist Teppei Teranishi, without the assistance of an outside producer.
"The Alchemy Index Vols. I & II" was released in October 2007 on Vagrant Records, it debuted at #1 on the U.S. Top Independent Albums chart and reached #24 on The Billboard 200. Vols. III air & IV earth, followed in April 2008.
US progressive rock band from San Diego, California, founded 2008.
Balance and Composure
Light We Made, which was produced by Will Yip (Nothing, Pity Sex), marks a milestone for the band, as this time around they've toned down their hardcore and punk-rock roots, to present a body of work that is dominated by soothing, harmonic tracks. The LP's coherent mood of transcendent moments are driven by the band experimenting with new sonic elements - weaving in dreamy synth chords, melodic guitar riffs, and atmospheric bass grooves and drum beats to hit home the delivery of the songs' emotional lyrics.
"This album is the culmination of the last 3 years, and how musically the band wanted to be more creative than ever before. We took time off to experience life, pushing ourselves to try things that we previously hadn't, which in return inspired us to record something that would stand out. This LP is a sonic progression for us, and we're excited to share it with everyone."
In support of the new LP, Balance and Composure will bring their live set on the road this Fall for a North American headline tour, plus will make an appearance at this year's Riot Fest in Chicago, and will open for Hum on September 24th in Pomona, CA.
