NPR Premieres Thrice’s Black Honey

NPR Music has premiered a second track from Thrice’s new record, To Be Everywhere Is To Be Nowhere, called Black Honey. You can stream it at http://www.npr.org/sections/allsongs/2016/04/27/475764110/vikings-choice-thrice-black-honey?utm_source=twitter.com&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=allsongs&utm_term=music&utm_content=20160427

Frontman Dustin Kensrue tells NPR that “Black Honey” was one of the first songs Thrice’s members wrote when they got back together. It’s a gloomy and propulsive piece of heavy drama that recalls late-period Cave In, with Kensrue channeling the soulful rasp of Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell more than ever. “Lyrically,” he writes, “the song spawned from an image that popped into my head: someone continually swatting at a swarm of bees to get their honey, but somehow not understanding why they would sting back in return.”
