by Island

Thrice has begun previewing material from their upcoming full length. However, in an unusual move, rather than posting the entirety of "Image of the Invisible," the first single from the October release of Vheissu, the track posted is only a locked "portion" of the song, with the entire track to be revealed after 100,000 listeners have downloaded the portion.

You can preview the track here. (Windows Media Player on Microsoft Windows is apparently required to support the digital rights restriction technology used to lock the song.)

The track comes from the band's sophomore release for Island and follow up to The Artist in the Ambulance.

To support the album, Thrice has enlisted Underoath, The Bled and Veda for a tour that will visit the US and Canada.
