It's a pretty great time to be a fan of mid-aughts emo and pop-punk. It feels like every day we learn about a new band reuniting (most recently it was New Jersey post-hardcore heroes Thursday taking the plunge) and we really can't complain. We always knew Thrice was going to get back in the game at some point, but perhaps we didn't realize how soon.

The California band have returned with "Blood on the Sand," their first single since starting a hiatus in 2012. Listen to it above.

It's as heavy and chunky as all of their material...it's truly like no time has passed. The band also revealed that the song will arrive on To Be Everywhere Is to Be Nowhere, their eighth studio album and the first since 2011's Major/Minor. No release date has been announced just yet, but we'll be waiting.

When you're done listening, revisit Thrice from the year 2003 in an old school video below:
