Post-hardcore legends Thrice have taken inspiration from a real-life story for their video for ‘Only Us’, the latest single from their recently released full-length, ‘Palms’.
The story in which the video is inspired is of a psychology experiment that took place in Middle Grove, NY in 1953.
Frontman Dustin Kensrue also commented further on the track.
“‘Only Us’ came from thinking about how we’re so easily divided into ‘us’ and ‘them’, when really we have an inherent ability to care for those in our group, and the parameters for who falls into that group are extremely flexible.
It’s about how the things that we think separate us are actually inconsequential, and if we could broaden the idea of ‘us’ to include all people, it would help us to build a more loving and civil society.”
You can stream and watch the video for ‘Only Us’ below.
The band’s tenth full-length album, ‘Palms’, is out now through Epitaph Records.
