Thrice lean into The Grey

2018-06-05 by Eldar777 | 67 Comments
American post-hardcore/alternative rock band Thrice have released a new single 'The Grey' and announced their signing to Epitaph Records.

It is unknown whether this song is a part of the upcoming album or just a stand alone single, but earlier this spring the band was seen at the studio recording what is supposed to be their next LP.

Check out 'The Grey'

Dustin always nails it, such a great vocalist. Decent enough song, but dead keen for a new album.

‘.5 The Gray Chapter’ is about the only one I can think of that’s forgivable for that.

more sophisticated songwriting than anything on the last album

Badass song, no doubt. However...

I can't help but feeling with this song (as I did with several on their last album) that they left a little meat on the bone. It's as if they have a really good song idea that they developed about 80-85% of the way, and then stopped. For instance, the bridge here that just repeats lines from the chorus and doesn't really change at all musically...they wouldn't have (and didn't) settle for that early in their career.

Still extremely good, just not quite fully realizing the potential. I think their discography has spoiled me...I now have thoroughly unrealistically high expectations for everything they do lol

Article titles like these are so forced lmao. Better than saying “new single” I guess.

Production is straight up sexy. It's a little on the nose lyrically but it's Thrice, I'll listen to anything they release.

If the lyrics weren't "lean into the grey", do you think they would have titled the article "Thrice turn grey"? Methinksso

Great song, but feels at times solely made for radio play. That said, I’ll take this style anyday for a radio hit than “Blood On The Sand”. Always skip that track on TBEITBN

This is way better than anything off their shitty post grunge record, but still not that impressive.

really with they'd be more experimental. songwriting is super basic and they've done all of it before. not interested in a common man's moral/politic rambling either. maybe it's just me who outgrew them but, either way, with this song i can say they're not my favorite band anymore.

"not interested in a common man's moral/politic rambling either"

[2]

musically this is novel for them (intro riff caught me off guard for thrice) but structurally/vocally/lyrically its thrice by the numbers

Nice. Solid song, and I like how the lyrics shed some light on Dustin's political/theological journey over the last few years. His writing has gotten a lot more obvious lately for better and worse, but this is mostly better.

i do kinda wish dustin would go back to more abstract lyricism rooted in metaphor and mythology and whatnot, but that's probably wishful thinking at this point

Man, that riff is sweet. I could go for some more bluesy Thrice. This kind of reminds me of the Helter Skelter cover they did back with Beggars, especially the production.

Fuck I listen to his progression as a vocalist and I’m still amazed. It’s like he’s not the same guy from the early stuff he’s changed so much.

yeah, it sounds a lot like Beggars, the beat sounds a lot like 'Talking through glass'. Anyway, the track is great!
