Thrice are beginning a tour with Circa Survive, Balance & Composure, and CHON this Friday (11/3), and they revealed that the tour will double as a 10th anniversary celebration of The Alchemy Index, their multi-genre series of four EPs that came out in 2007 and 2008. They say "we're going to be playing a small Alchemy Index suite in the set," so it won't be a full-album show, but it should mean more Alchemy Index songs than a typical Thrice show.

The Kid A-style Water was the most traditionally art rock, but “Firebreather” from Fire was the best song to come out of the experiment. It’s out-of-this-world heavy but still melodic...
