Thrice Set to Record New Album, Playing Bamboozle

Thrice have been creatively working the past few months on what will be their seventh studio album, set for release early Fall 2011 on Vagrant Records.

In support of their upcoming release, the band will perform at the 2011 Bamboozle Festival in NJ kicking off Friday night, April 29 at Hoodwink performing a cover set from Hot Water Music. They will also take the stage Saturday, April 30 performing past Thrice crowd-favorites as well as a new song off their upcoming album.

“We’ve been off the road since last August, and have spent the past few months working really hard on a new record, so we’re itching to play live again,” said Riley Breckenridge, drummer. “In our experience, Bamboozle has always been a good time, not only because we get to play in front of a ton of people, but because we get to reconnect with so many friends in bands that we’ve toured with over the years.

“We’re really looking forward to it.”

The indie band will return to Southern California immediately after Bamboozle weekend to begin tracking their new album. Dave Schiffman who mixed “Beggars” and engineered “Vheissu” is producing the untitled upcoming album. Schiffman can be credited to working with Jimmy Eat World, Mars Volta, Rage Against the Machine and more.

This year marks the first time the band will play Hoodwink, a Bamboozle festival opening night tradition where bands perform the music of other bands. The band has decided to cover Hot Water Music.

“With our Hoodwink set, we’re paying homage to some very good friends of ours; a band that took us under their wing when we were a young and impressionable band, and really showed us what being an honest, hard-working, passionate band is all about,” explained Breckenridge.

The band will not be revealing which songs they will be covering or which new song of the upcoming album they will be performing.
