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 Iím gonna have to change this blogís 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 heís 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 itís 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 Iím 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, theyíve heard this or that. So I try every night just to address that weíre not unaware of these things that are going around and we wouldnít have them out with us if we didnít 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 thereís just intense scrutiny and also a lot of ill will mostly...

Check out another interview with Riley from Thrice talking about the events that led to the band's decision to go on hiatus.
From the InterviewI canít remember exactly when. I feel like the writing had kind of been on the walls for a while. The amount of touring that weíve done over the past two or three years has gone down considerably and in large part that is due to Dustin and Teppei having growing families and young kids at home. You know, Dustin has got three kids, Teppei has got two and has a third on the way. Itís really tough for them to be home at all, really. So the amount of touring we have done has kind of gone down. Itís something that I didnít think of the realm of...

Riley from Thrice mentioned in a recent interview that he does believe the band will record and tour again in the future.
From the InterviewWe still want to do this, we just can't do it right now. We will write music together again, we will play shows together again but right now it's important for us to do other things. It's scary and exciting at the same time.

This week, Riley Breckenridge's weekly column 3hree Things deals with the topic of Thrice's impending Farewell Tour.
From the BlogSaying that there are a lot of unforgettable memories packed into those songs, be it the writing and recording of them, or touring on them and playing them live, seems like a gross understatement to me. There's really no way to explain it from this side. Fourteen years is more than a third of my life. That's nuts to me. And as I listen to and play along with these songs, those memories rush by like when my elementary school teacher would leave the projector on as he/she rewound a filmstrip we watched. They move by too quickly to hang on to any or all of...

Thrice will be recording portions of their upcoming tour for a live release.
Message from the BandOn Friday we announced a pre-sale for two additional hometown shows. Due to the overwhelming demand, a lot of people didnít get the opportunity to purchase tickets in time so we wanted to try and accommodate as many people as we could. We also announced that weíll be recording portions of the tour for a live album that is scheduled to be released early in the Fall. More details to come. Tour is just a few days away now. Weíre really looking forward to seeing all of you soon.

From the BlogThis will be me later tonight if you replace the cake with a pile of greasy fried chicken, collared greens, mashed potatoes, a bounty of craft brews and a heap of brownies. I was born and raised on the West Coast, but my gut prefers the South (and good beer, regardless of where itís from).

Iím hoping that 2012 will bring a lot more writing (here and elsewhere), a lot of new music from a couple of new projects (solo and collaborative) that Iím working on, a really fun ďfinalĒ Thrice tour with a couple of AMAZING bands (who will be announced fairly soon), a happy and healthy family, and a happy and healthy...

From the BandI donít know what the future looks like for Thrice, or for any of us individually. I do know that I would love to make more music in the future with them, as well as play some shows or short tours, but for the time being, I need to step out of the role of full time touring/recording musician, and will do so after this tour.
