Opening Artist: La Disputenothing, nowhere. Post-hardcore quartet Thrice formed in 1998 in Irvine, California. Guitarist/vocalist Dustin Kensrue, guitarist Teppei Teranishi, bassist Eddie Breckenridge, and drummer Riley Breckenridge all knew each other from high school. By late 1999, Thrice had amassed enough material to self-release the Identity Crisis LP in April 2000. Thrice re-entered the studio with producer Brian McTernan; The Illusion of Safety emerged and was later released in February 2002. Thrice began headlining shows for the first time that year, and eventually signed to Island Records in June. The focused effort The Artist in the Ambulance appeared in August 2003, featuring the hit All That's Left. A new studio effort, the ambitious Vheissu, followed in October 2005, while the EP Red Sky appeared early the next year.
