Thrice's drummer has spoken out about the band's upcoming farewell tour dates.
Riley Breckenridge made the following comments in his weekly 3hree Things column about the band's final set of tour dates.
'Saying that there are a lot of unforgettable memories packed into those songs, be it the writing and recording of them, or touring on them and playing them live, seems like a gross understatement to me. There's really no way to explain it from this side. Fourteen years is more than a third of my life. That's nuts to me. And as I listen to and play along with these songs, those memories rush by like when my elementary school teacher would leave the projector on as he/she rewound a filmstrip we watched. They move by too quickly to hang on to any or all of them, but there's a resonance there (beyond the spinning of the reels). For me, that resonance is gratitude.'
The band will be making one of their final European appearances this weekend at Groezrock Festival, before playing their last UK show in London on Monday night.
