Dustin Kensrue (Thrice) heading to the studio to record and self-produce new album

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.

Random Cover Song: The Get Up Kids – “Suffragette City”

Cover songs are like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’re going to get. We here at Dying Scene love hearing punk bands do their own take on other band’s songs. Sometimes they pull off amazing interpretations of old classics, sometimes they’re not much more than humble tributes to a fellow artist, and other times they’re just downright laughable renditions of otherwise great songs. Good or bad. Intriguing or mundane. We’ll let you be the judge.

Today’s cover comes from 90’s indie/emo mainstays  The Get Up Kids performing “Suffragette City”, originally written and performed by famed glam rocker David Bowie. Bowie released the song on his 1972 album, Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, although it was later released as its own single in 1976 to promote the Changesonebowie compilation. The Get Up Kids released their version on the 2001 b-sides and rarities collection Eudora.

You can check out both versions of the song below.
