Post-hardcore heroes Thrice will very soon be releasing ‘Palms’, the band’s eagerly-awaited tenth full-length album, and to keep anticipation hot they’ve now dropped its second choice of single.
The band’s new track, titled ‘Only Us’, also acts as the album’s opening track, and follows on from the surprise release of its lead single, ‘The Grey’.
Thrice also spoke further on the song’s meaning.
“‘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.”

The band’s new full-length album, ‘Palms’, is set for release on September 14th 2018 through Epitaph Records.
