Thrice is an American rock band from Irvine, California, formed in 1998. The group was founded by guitarist/vocalist DustinKensrue 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 guitar lines,and frequent changes in complex time signatures. This style is exemplified on their second album, The Illusion of Safety(2002) and their third album The Artist in the Ambulance (2003). Their fourth album Vheissu (2005) made significant changesby incorporating electronic beats, keyboards, and more experimental and nuanced songwriting. Their fifth effort was a 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 different aspects of theband's musical aesthetic which reflect the elemental themes of fire, water, air and earth, both lyrically and musically. Theband's sixth album, entitled Beggars, was released on August 11, 2009, and their seventh, Major/Minor on September 20,2011. The most recent albums feature a refined combination of the band's different experiments and explorations. 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 "Thrice isnot breaking up," and that the band will be "taking a break from being a full-time band..

The follow-up was called This Good Night Is StillEverywhere and featured two original Christmas songs and covers of Christmas carols.
