Former Thrice singer Dustin Kensrue is working on a new solo effort. Kensrue has entered the studio and is currently recording the long anticipated follow-up to his 2007 solo debut, Please Come Home. So, yeah, it's been a minute.
What's the intel? Well, the new album is expected to be released next spring on Staple Records/Vagrant Records. Kensrue, known for his dynamic solo performances and for his work in Thrice, is engineering and producing the record on his own.
"Recording right now is for me the end of a long distilling process," said Kensrue. "I always have bits and pieces of songs that are bouncing around in my head. I usually record them and listen back later, and most of the time I can't remember why I even bothered to record them in the first place. But then there are the tunes that stick – the ones I find running over and over through my head, demanding to be finished. Begging for a home. The most persistent of these tunes from the past eight years are what I'm busy recording right now, and there's nothing I'd rather be doing."
We love that some of the songs are persistent and beg for a home. That makes us want to hear the finished product.
