THRICE Announce New Single, “Open Your Eyes And Dream”

Californian rock band THRICE will release a new single, “Open your eyes and dream”September 20 via Epitaph.

THRICE singer Dustin Kensrue says of the track, “It’s so easy to believe that big systemic issues can’t change because we’ve lived with them all our lives. But if you look back and zoom out, it’s easy to see that this feeling of permeability and inevitability is just an illusion. Most things seem impossible until they happen. This song is about opening your eyes to this reality and being ready to dream that something better exists.

The new single comes after the September 2021 release of THRICEthe last album of, “Horizons/East”. The LP conveys a palpable sense of danger, determination and possibility and exemplifies art as a work of recognition – the human task of perceiving oneself amid detail, disaster and blessing as one relentless relational phenomenon among others. . In this, “Horizons/East” is the rare rock album on which interdependence is a theme, painting an adventurous and lush landscape blended by Scott Evans which the band produced and recorded themselves New weed studio.

Earlier this year, THRICE drummer Riley Breckenridge spoke to Field on how he’s grown as a musician, especially during the pandemic when he couldn’t perform live. He said: “Having no shows to play, we made a record during this time. It gives me a lot of time at home to go into the studio and really work on my game and try to expand the reach of what I’m able to do and unlearn some bad habits I developed early on so yeah definitely especially in the last couple of years or so I feel like I’ve made a lot of positive progress .

“The best thing about music and playing an instrument is that there is no final boss for playing an instrument. You don’t win the game. You can always improve, you can always learn more and you can always explore new genres. . It’s an endless quest to improve. So, I don’t think it’s ever going to get to a point where I’m like, ‘Okay , yeah, I got it. I’m technically good now.'”

When asked about some of those bad habits he mentioned, Riley said: “I hold a lot of tension while I play. I grew up as an athlete and saw the drums as a way to take out some of that aggression that you would feel during a match. So, when I started playing drums – instead of playing the drums, I attacked them, for lack of a better term. And that’s not a really sustainable way to do anything, especially playing instruments. So I’ve had to try to recalibrate the way I play and be less of a tub-crushing gorilla and try to have a little more finesse – a relationship that’s more symbiotic instead of just punishing.”
