Thrice offer free download of new song Yellow Belly and announce US fall tour

Thrice is celebrating the release of their upcoming 7th studio album, Major/Minor available September 20th, 2011, by offering up a FREE download of the album’s first track, “Yellow Belly.” Listen to the opening song below, and click the little down arrow for the free download!

The recording of Major/Minor began May 2nd in Santa Monica, CA with Dave Schiffman at Red Bull Studios who mixed “Beggars” and engineered “Vheissu.” As a band that continues to push boundaries, Major/Minor will be no exception.

“It’s definitely the most natural progression from record to record that we’ve had in a while. We did The Alchemy Index, which was totally different [from Vheissu]. Then Beggars was kind of the reaction against that. This kind of makes sense coming out of Beggars, but it’s definitely a different record,” says lead singer Dustin Kensrue.
