Sometimes there are essential events in your life that might require you to cancel any plans or prior commitments. An occasion so important that you might travel halfway across the globe to be a part of it and experience it in person. Thrice performing their 2002 breakthrough album “The Illusion of Safety,” in its entirety, is one of those important events. It’s an album that redefined punk music and spawned an entire generation of copycat bands.
“The Illusion of Safety” is Thrice’s second studio album, and is home to one of their most popular songs, “Deadbolt.” While most of the songs on “The Illusion of Safety” seemed to have been “exiled” from Thrice’s setlists many years ago, “Deadbolt” is a crowd favorite that has consistently been worked into performances over the years.
There are twelve other amazing songs on the album that have rarely (if ever) been performed live in the past 20 years. Most diehard Thrice fans have not been able to fully relive the excitement or experience of “early Thrice” since high school.
THE ILLUSION OF SAFETY TOUR
Since their inception, Thrice has released 11 studio albums, with their last being 2021’s “Horizons/East.” At the time, they stated they had more songs ready for a companion album, which would be titled “Horizons/West.”
The Irvine-based band comprised of guitarist/vocalist Dustin Kensrue, lead guitarist Teppei Teranishi, along with the Breckenridge brothers, Riley and Eddie on drums and bass, will be performing four consecutive nights at The House of Blues Anaheim beginning on December 15th and running through December 18th.
Three of the nights are already sold out, but some tickets are still available for the first night. It has also been hinted that these will be the “final” shows of this nature for the band, so whether you’re a casual Thrice fan or fanatic, this is something you don’t want to miss.
