2007 Debut Solo Album On Pink Vinyl LP!
Part Of The Ten Bands One Cause Campaign!
Limited Edition Pink Vinyl - Only 2000 Copies!

Dustin Kensrue (of Thrice) is celebrating the 10+ year anniversary of his solo release Please Come Home. There will be a limited one time run of 2,000 units of PINK VINYL for this year's Ten Bands One Cause pink vinyl charity campaign to support Gilda's Club NYC.

Thrice is an American post-hardcore band from Irvine, California, formed in 1998. The group was founded by guitarist/vocalist Dustin Kensrue and guitarist Teppei Teranishi while they were in high school. Early in their career, the band was known for fast, hard music based in heavily distorted guitars, prominent lead guitar lines, and frequent changes in complex time signatures. While still a member of Thrice, Dustin Kensrue released his first solo album on Equal Vision Records on January 23, 2007, titled Please Come Home. The album was recorded in the studio of Thrice lead guitarist Teppei Teranishi, who also played piano and organ on the album. Electric guitars and drums were recorded by long-time friend and Thrice guitar technician, Chris Jones.The album opened at 142 on the Billboard 200 with 5,800 copies sold.

"The harmonica-swept locomotion steamroll of 'I Knew You Before' clues listeners in straightaway that Thrice frontman Dustin Kensrue wanted to release an album separate from his main gig for good reason. Gone is the chugging and metallic post-hardcore Thrice have been perfecting since 1998; it's replaced on Please Come Home with little more than an acoustic guitar, harmonica, and considerable amount of respect for the traditions of singer/songwriters come before. It might just be luck that Kensrue's down-home delivery meshes effortlessly with this new rustic backdrop without sounding forced, but one could hardly call it luck in his pulling off an entire album of folk and country-inspired fare that is remarkably subtle in its ability to be completely memorable. Yes, the slight Southern inflections that occasionally crop up belie his Orange County home and might initially seem out of place, but even conspicuous cuts like the bluesy rogue of 'Blood & Wine' sink in nicely after a few spins. It's a bit of a tease that there are only eight tracks in about 30 minutes' time, but the early-morning glow of songs like the charming 'Pistol' (divulging Kensrue's boyish affections for his wife) and quietly aching title track exude such a rough tenderness and sincere warmth that what the record lacks in quantity is easily made up in quality. Working with co-producer and Thrice bandmate Teppei Teranishi, Kensrue has proved with Please Come Home that he doesn't need to scream over a thick slab of sound to effectively turn heads; six strings and a dusty porch out back do just fine." - Corey Apar,
