Thrice is an American rock band from Irvine, California, formed in 1998. The group was founded by guitarist/vocalist Dustin Kensrue and guitarist Teppei Teranishi while they were in high school.

Early in their career, the band was known for fast, hard music based in heavily distorted guitars, prominent lead guitarlines,and frequent changes in complex time signatures. This style is exemplified on their second album, The Illusion ofSafety(2002) and their third album The Artist in the Ambulance (2003). Their fourth album Vheissu (2005) made significantchangesby incorporating electronic beats, keyboards, and more experimental and nuanced songwriting. Their fifth effort wasa doublealbum entitled The Alchemy Index (2007/2008), released as two sets of two CDs that together make a 4-part, 24-song cycle.Each of the four 6-song EPs of the Alchemy Index features significantly different styles, based on differentaspects of theband's musical aesthetic which reflect the elemental themes of fire, water, air and earth, both lyrically andmusically. Theband's sixth album, entitled Beggars, was released on August 11, 2009, and their seventh, Major/Minor onSeptember 20,2011. The most recent albums feature a refined combination of the band's different experiments andexplorations. Each albumreleased by Thrice has had a portion of its sales proceeds donated to a new charitable organization.

Following Thrice's spring 2012 tour, the band went on hiatus. In the group's public statement, Kensrue stated that "Thriceisnot breaking up," and that the band will be "taking a break from being a full-time band..

Dustin Kensrue has released two solo albums, the first on Equal Vision Records on January 23, 2007, titled Please ComeHome.The album opened at 142 on the Billboard 200 with 5,800 copies sold. The follow-up was called This Good Night IsStillEverywhere and featured two original Christmas songs and covers of Christmas carols.

Teppei Teranishi is in a side project with Chris Jones called Black Unicorn. Chris Jones also played drums and electric guitaronDustin's solo album. « hide
