California rock band Thrice has shared an acoustic version of their track ‘Summer Set Fire to the Rain,’ out now via Epitaph Records. The new version of this song takes the driving persistency of the original track, found on Thrice’s most recent album ‘Horizons/East,’ and strips it down to its bones – a delicate guitar backing with Dustin Kensure’s vocals taking center stage.

On the new single, Kensrue shares, “We usually write songs built up from instrumental parts, so it’s always fun to strip them down and find the bones of the song hidden beneath.”
‘Summer Set Fire to the Rain’ appeared originally on Thrice’s acclaimed album ‘Horizons/East,’ released in September 2021 via Epitaph Records. The album conveys a palpable sense of danger, determination, and possibility and exemplifies art as a work of recognition — the human task of perceiving oneself amid details, disasters, and blessings as a relentlessly relational phenomenon among others. In this, ‘Horizons/East’ is the rare rock album on which interrelatedness is a theme, painting an adventurous and lush landscape mixed by Scott Evans that the band self-produced and recorded at their own New Grass Studio.
