Thrice detailed their upcoming farewell tour this morning.
The band, set to go on an official "hiatus" after the trek, have decided to hang it up for a while, so they can be with families and get away from the rigors of a touring lifestyle. They hinted at the hiatus during their most recent tour, and now the dates have been announced for what is probably the last chance for fans to see them live.
Here are the dates:

I plan to be at all 3 of the LA-area dates, including both at HOB Anaheim and Club Nokia. A relatively new convert to the world of Thrice and their consistently amazing music, this saddens me about as much as when Rx Bandits called time out last year too.
