On Tuesday, April 15th, reggae lovers will be witness to another production out of E.N Young’s Imperial Sound Recording Studio. “Broken” is the title of Thrive’s newest single and the track will feature the sweet voice of Hirie to go along with the band’s signature smooth sound.
Production on “Broken” began back in September of 2013 and as mentioned in a previous update, this will be Thrive’s first time working with both E.N Young and Hirie. This time around, The Pier got some information regarding the single from Thrive’s bassist, Andrew Forgy. He explains, “We have been friends with E.N for a very long time, and it was great to finally link up professionally. His studio is on point and his producing skills within the genre are absolutely exceptional. Hirie is a class act as well. One of the sweetest girls I know and she has an amazing voice.”
Just five days before the release of “Broken,” Thrive will begin a run of 10 shows along the coast of California. The Spring Cleaning Tour 2014 will start in San Francisco on April 10th before heading south towards San Diego and eventually ending with a show back up north at Planet Gemini in Monterey for the official California Roots Pre Party. No strangers to playing shows with some big names, the tour will feature Thrive, alongside artists like Dirty Heads, Rootz Underground, Rome Ramirez, Stick Figure, Collie Buddz, Katchafire and more!
Andrew adds, “We have been working with some secret people on some very fun collaborations… We are always working on new music, but in a way try to keep it on the low…. All I can say is we will be releasing some new, exciting singles and there will be an album in the future, just no set time.”
