Thrice’s “Beggars” Came Out Ten Years Ago Today
The trailblazing post-hardcore band will celebrate the occasion with a vinyl reissue and an anniversary show in Anaheim.
Whether you were the type of person who ventured into Hot Topic exactly one time in the early aughts to nab a tee of your favorite post-hardcore band, or you learned about the genre midway through the decade via the best Tony Hawk soundtrack, there’s generally a strong sense of nostalgia attached to Thrice. The West Coast rockers are still putting out music, of course, but the moment they shared with like-minded peers Thursday and Senses Fail continues to recede in the rearview.
Today marks ten years since Thrice released Beggars, one of seven albums they put out last decade which are nearly equally revered. The band took to Instagram this morning to commemorate the occasion with an unearthed video of them playing Beggars’ title track (specifically, the track’s apocalyptic final moments), as well as to plug their forthcoming reissue of the record and an anniversary show planned to go down at Anaheim’s House of Blues.
If you’re in Anaheim, you can catch the band at HoB on December 6 (tickets here), and if you’re a vinyl person, you only have to wait ’til August 16 for a copy of the anniversary package, featuring a handful of B-sides (available here). The rest of us will have to settle for watching the band rock out via the clip below.
