Thrice Announce New September 15 Release Date And Bonus Content For Beggars
Available on iTunes August 11
August 4, 2009 – Vagrant Records announces a new in-store release date for the sixth studio album from Southern California’s Thrice. Beggars leaked in mid-July resulting in a pushed up digital release exclusively on iTunes on August 11. September 15 will be the day that the newly beefed up physical CD will be in stores. The package will include a download card featuring five bonus tracks – two b-sides (“Answered,” “Red Telephone”) which were recorded during the Beggars sessions, as well as a hot-off-the-presses studio rendition of The Beatles’ “Helter Skelter” – a fan favorite from recent Thrice live shows. Also included are a remix of “All The World Is Mad” by Free The Robots and a remix of “Circles” by Textual.
Guitarist Teppei Teranishi produced all fifteen tracks at his New Grass Studios in Southern California.
MySpace is hosting an exclusive album premiere of Beggars beginning today. Fans can listen to the stream by clicking here: http://www.myspace.com/thrice
Thrice is confirmed as main support on a portion of Brand New’s recently announced fall US tour. Their leg begins October 25 in Lubbock, TX and wraps up in Philadelphia on November 14.
