Thrice Premiere “Only Us” Music Video, Join Bring Me The Horizon’s North American Tour

Thrice have premiered a new music video for their song “Only Us” from their latest album “Palms“. An official press release provided some more insight into the inspiration for the video as follows:

“In creating the video for ‘Only Us,’ Thrice drew inspiration from a real-life story of a psychology experiment that took place in Middle Grove, NY in 1953.

With neither the campers nor their parents aware of the experiment, researchers posed as camp counselors, split a group of 11-year-old boys into two factions, and placed them in competition in hopes of proving their theory that the kids would soon turn against each other.

But despite their efforts to tear the campers apart (including interfering with the experiment by carrying out a series of “frustration exercises”), the kids ultimately stuck together and protected their friendships.”

Thrice frontman Dustin Kensrue also commented of the track:

“‘Only Us‘ came from thinking about how we’re so easily divided into ‘us’ and ‘them,’ when really we have an inherent ability to care for those in our group, and the parameters for who falls into that group are extremely flexible.

It’s about how the things that we think separate us are actually inconsequential, and if we could broaden the idea of ‘us’ to include all people, it would help us to build a more loving and civil society.”
