Thrice have shared an acoustic version of their track “Summer Set Fire to the Rain” via Epitaph Records. The new version of this song takes the driving persistency of the original track and strips it down to its bones. Carried by a delicate guitar backing with Dustin Kensure’s vocals taking center stage, the song can be heard now below.
On the new single, Kensrue shares, “We usually write songs built up from instrumental parts, so it’s always fun to strip them down and find the bones of the song hidden beneath.”
“Summer Set Fire to the Rain” appeared originally on Thrice’s acclaimed album Horizons/East, released in September 2021 via Epitaph Records. The album conveys a palpable sense of danger, determination, and possibility and exemplifies art as a work of recognition — the human task of perceiving oneself amid details, disasters, and blessings as a relentlessly relational phenomenon among others. In this, Horizons/East is the rare rock album on which interrelatedness is a theme, painting an adventurous and lush landscape mixed by Scott Evans that the band self-produced and recorded at their own New Grass Studio.
Thrice will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of The Illusion Of Safety with a small run of shows in December. Tickets and more information available at www.thrice.net.
