Riley Breckenridge (Thrice) is starting a new band called Puig Destroyer. It’s a baseball-themed grindcore project featuring Mike Minnick (Curl Up & Die) on vocals, Ian Miller and Jon Howell (Kowloon Walled City) and Riley (Thrice) doing drum programming.
We’ve got basic tracking done for our debut EP, and we should have a track from said EP fairly soon. Please stay tuned for updates/tunes. The roughs I’ve heard are ridiculously awesome and fun and raw as all hell.

Kinda like Yasiel Puig.

We’re all very excited an hope that you are too.

Thrice will release their Anthology set on October 30th.
Jason Tate on 08/20/12 - 11:36 AM
Dustin's posted an explanation on twitter about his new project, The Modern Post.
From the PostThe reason I want to make this clear, is that it would be sad to think that some of you would think that I am "going Christian," meaning, making poor music just for Christians, and ceasing to make music that engages with culture at large. I assure you that I hate the Christian art ghetto more than most, if not all of you. As I see it, Christians should make good art, that shows forth truth and beauty for all, or make art that is for a specific purpose within the church. Making subpar cheesy art for Christians to consume comfortably is a tragedy for everyone.

Check out our interview with Thrice here.
From The InterviewAs far as the lyrics are concerned, I've always wanted Dustin to sing about what mattered to him. You want a vocalist/frontman to be truly passionate about what he/she is singing about; if they aren't passionate about it, it's very easy to see though in a lot of cases. Even if I don't agree with his worldview, or if I'm not a Calvinist, I don't think it matters. I've been happy to play in this band for years, and I want him to sing about what matters to him, and that's the bottom line.

Brian Fallon from The Gaslight Anthem has written a blog in support of Dustin Kensrue (Thrice).
From The BlogI guess I’m gonna have to change this blog’s name to "Sticking Up For People.com."

So Mr. Duston Kensrue feels led by The Lord to leave Thrice and play worship music. Awesome. I love that he’s doing that.

I understand some Thrice fans might be bummed that they broke up, but bands do that from time to time and it happens. You have to keep in mind that it’s not your band. These people have lives that are more important than the thing they do that we love and admire. Real life happens to people in the spotlight.

In this article, Dustin Kensrue discusses why his family is moving to Bellevue and how he felt he was called to dedicate himself to playing worship music. Thrice played its final show last week.
From the ArticleOver the last few years God, continued to give me a bigger and bigger vision of what I eventually I’m called to do, and given me the audacious goal of shaking things up in worship music culture and the church at large. I have a passion to see more songs that are 1) more cross/Christ-centered, and also 2) engage the culture directly, rather than endlessly recycling the Christian subculture. Despite my fears at failing and my doubts in my abilities, I am firmly convinced that this...

Dustin Kensrue gave some farewell words to the fans at Thrice's last show together before their hiatus. He told the crowd, "We'll see you in the future at some undisclosed time" before chants of "Thank you Thrice!" The band closed its set with "Anthology." There's a video in the replies.

Dustin Kensrue of Thrice, discusses the hiatus, band dynamics, faith, and having Invisible Children out on tour with them.
From the InterviewI think the initial reaction when I talk about it has been a different feel because people do have those questions, they’ve heard this or that. So I try every night just to address that we’re not unaware of these things that are going around and we wouldn’t have them out with us if we didn’t have confidence that they were totally on the level. I mean, there was just some unfortunately timing with some stuff, and anytime anyone or anything gets elevated to such a high profile there’s just intense scrutiny and also a lot of ill will mostly...
