To emerge from a global pandemic with a renewed sense of situational awareness, hard won insight,
and a new album is the kind of move we've come to expect from THRICE over the last twenty years.
With Horizons/East, Dustin Kensrue and his bandmates address, with candor and courage, the fragile
and awkward arrangements that pass for civilization, while inviting us to dwell more knowingly within
our own lives. Without surrendering any of the energy and hard edge of their previous albums, they've
given us a profoundly meditative work which serves as a musical summons to everyday attentiveness.
Since forming THRICE with guitarist Teppei Teranishi, bassist Eddie Breckenridge, and drummer Riley
Breckenridge in 1998, Kensrue has never been one to back down from a mental fight. This mood is set
by the opening synth-driven number "Color of the Sky," which sounds well-suited to accompany the
closing credits of the Stranger Things season finale. Think Flying Lotus giving way to Elbow and setting
the listener down in a new dimension. A self-recorded effort, Horizons/East conveys a palpable sense
of danger, determination, and possibility.
