Thrice is now streaming their chunky new single "Summer Set Fire To The Rain", whose energy is about as steady as a solid summer storm. Guitarist and vocalist Dustin Kensrue said the song stays pretty true to the original demo written by bassist Eddie Breckenridge.
"Much of this song is really close to Ed's original demo. As we got together and were jamming on the parts, I ended up singing the words 'Summer set fire to the rain.' While most of the things I end up singing during the writing process are nonsense, sometimes there are little gems that emerge, and I’ve been trying to pay more attention to them and pull them in to songs when it feels right. In this case, my accidental but poetic framing of being caught in the rain while the sun shines became a central metaphor for the song."
Thrice will release Horizons / East on September 17. Pre-orders are available here. You can also catch Thrice on the road with Touché Amoré and Self Defense Family later this month.
