Dustin Kensrue, formerly of Thrice, recently announced that he will be heading to the studio to begin recording a new album. Kensrue will be engineering and producing the new work himself, with an expected release date of next Spring through Staple Records / Vagrant Records.
Here’s what Dustin had to say about the upcoming work,
Recording right now is for me the end of a long distilling process. I always have bits and pieces of songs that are bouncing around in my head. I usually record them and listen back later, and most of the time I can’t remember why I even bothered to record them in the first place. But then there are the tunes that stick – the ones I find running over and over through my head, demanding to be finished. Begging for a home. The most persistent of these tunes from the past 8 years are what I’m busy recording right now, and there’s nothing I’d rather be doing.
Thrice released their latest studio record, “Major/Minor” September of 2011 on Vagrant Records, before doing a farewell tour and going on indefinite hiatus.
