THRICE have announced a UK and European tour in celebration of the 20th anniversary of The Artist In The Ambulance.  The tour kicks off on the 12th February 2024 in Spain and visiting major cities throughout Europe before heading to the UK, playing The Artist In The Ambulance in its entirety, with special guest Town Portal (EU only) and Palm Reader (UK only). 

On the upcoming tour, Thrice vocalist Dustin Kensrue shares, “The Artist in the Ambulance has played such a huge part in the history of the band. These songs have stood the test of time better than we could have known when we wrote them. But they’ve also subtly shifted and grown with us as we’ve played them at shows over the last 20 years, which is why it was so much fun to revisit them in the studio, and also why we are so excited to play the whole record live, especially for the first time in its entirety.”

The question has to be asked: Why would we re-record a 20 year old album, let alone one that is widely beloved and arguably our most well-known. I think the core of the answer is that it simply sounded fun and we were curious,” shares Kensrue. “We know that playing the revisionist is a dangerous game, so we were always a little uneasy about trying to go back and mess with something that people loved, people who had none of the hangups about the record that we did. But, since we decided to do this anyway, we tried to let that wariness guide us in how we approached the record, and in the end we decided to make very minimal structural changes.”

Released in 2003, The Artist In The Ambulance remains one of the most influential albums in the genre. Featuring tracks like “The Artist In The Ambulance,” “All That’s Left,” “Stare At The Sun” and more, the album peaked at number 1 and number 16 on the Billboard US Top Internet Albums and Billboard 200 chart respectively. “All That’s Left” peaked at number 24 on Alternative Airplay, number 36 on Mainstream Rock Airplay and number 37 on Active Rock, and “Stare at the Sun” peaked at number 39 on Alternative Airplay. More recently, The Artist In The Ambulance was named by NMEas one of the 20 emo albums that have stood the test of time, and Rock Sound ranked it number 25 on their list of modern classics.

At the end of the day, what we wanted the record to sound like for fans is that somehow one of their old favorite records got a new lease on life, but that it hadn’t lost its soul or turned into something else. We hope you enjoy revisiting The Artist In the Ambulance.”


Formed in 1998, the Orange County-based four-piece is widely regarded as one of the most innovative rock bands of their generation. Featuring frontman Dustin Kensrue, guitarist Teppei Teranishi, bassist Eddie Breckenridge, and drummer Riley Breckenridge.
