These SoCal emo survivors just released a new album, Major/Minor, whose title reflects their up-and-down commercial fortunes: Signed (along with the likeminded Thursday) to Island back in the early ’90s, Thrice never smoothed out their brainy-brutal sound enough to trigger a big mainstream breakthrough. Now they’re back in Indieland, where their devoted fans will probably sustain them for years.
