Thrice’s Dustin Kensrue Goes Country On New Solo Album “Desert Dreaming”


Thrice vocalist/guitarist Dustin Kensrue has gone the country route for his upcoming new solo album, “Desert Dreaming“. That record, due out April 05th on BMG, finds Kensrue utilizing pedal steel guitar (Abe Levy), upright bass (Seth Richardson) and more.

A video for the first single, “Death Valley Honeymoon“, is available below. Cat Clyde guests on that track, which chronicles the tale of how Kensrue‘s grandparents met. Kensrue explained:

“There were multiple moments while writing that I felt like I was channeling my grandparents’ spirits in one way or another. Having Cat Clyde sing my grandmother’s verse in the song really brought the whole thing home for me and she absolutely nailed it. Even the actor who plays my grandpa in the video showed up on set and gave me and my sister a start when we saw how eerily his face and smile made him resemble my mom’s dad.”
