Warped Tour Interview: Thrice

'NITES blogger Ajay Miranda covered the San Antonio stop of this year's Warped Tour for the website Double Stereo. Below are some thoughts on the interview, as well as a link to the published Q&A.

Thrice interviewThis was probably my favorite interview of the day. The Breckenridge brothers, Eddie and Riley, are laid-back dudes. Not an ounce of pretentiousness about them, which is nice. You never know what you're gonna get from a band who names an album after a Thomas Pynchon novel and writes a four-part concept album about the natural elements. They gave detailed and intelligent answers, which makes my job as an interviewer easy. And after a line of serious and kinda-serious questions, they humored my Warped-Tour-survival question and gave a nice little anecdote about the importance of toilet paper at music festivals ("Make sure the paper's there before you cop a squat," says Riley Breckenridge). Oh, yeah: Thrice also has a new album coming out in October (tentatively titled Beggars). They gave me a bunch of info on that. Read the interview at Double Stereo.
