The news follows the release of this past February of ‘The Artist In The Ambulance – Revisited’. It sees the quartet re-record the album in full with a variety of guest spots; Ryan Osterman (Holy Fawn), Chuck Ragan (Hot Water Music), Sam Carter (Architects), Mike Minnick (Curl Up And Die), Brian McTernan (Be Well), and Andy Hull (Manchester Orchestra).
“’The Artist in the Ambulance’ has played such a huge part in the history of the band. These songs have stood the test of time better than we could have known when we wrote them,” explained Thrice vocalist Dustin Kensrue, when discussing the motive behind ‘The Artist In The Ambulance – Revisited’.
He added, “But they’ve also subtly shifted and grown with us as we’ve played them at shows over the last 20 years, which is why it was so much fun to revisit them in the studio, and also why we are so excited to play the whole record live, especially for the first time in its entirety.”
‘The Artist In The Ambulance – Revisited’ will also be released on limited edition vinyl, and can be pre-ordered here.
