One day after wrapping up their US headliner with The Bronx and Teenage Wrist, post-hardcore/rock veterans Thrice have just dropped some pretty exciting news.
Continuing to support their brand new album Palms, the Epitaph signees will be hitting the road in late January joining Bring Me The Horizon and Fever 333 on the First Love Tour.
And, as if that wasn’t enough exciting news, the SoCal outfit has also released a brand new music video for their track “Only Us” which the band drew inspiration from a 1953 psychology experiment. According to a press release, the experiment went as follows:
“With neither the campers nor their parents aware of the experiment, researchers posed as camp counselors, split a group of 11-year-old boys into two factions, and placed them in competition in hopes of proving their theory that the kids would soon turn against each other. But despite their efforts to tear the campers apart (including interfering with the experiment by carrying out a series of “frustration exercises”), the kids ultimately stuck together and protected their friendships.”
Commenting on the track, vocalist/guitarist Dustin Kensrue said: “‘Only Us‘ came from thinking about how we’re so easily divided into ‘us’ and ‘them,’ when really we have an inherent ability to care for those in our group, and the parameters for who falls into that group are extremely flexible. It’s about how the things that we think separate us are actually inconsequential, and if we could broaden the idea of ‘us’ to include all people, it would help us to build a more loving and civil society.”
