California post-hardcore act Thrice have posted a pair of Christmas cover songs, "Carol Of The Bells" and "Happy Christmas (War Is Over)," up for streaming on their MySpace page. It is presumed both songs were recorded at the same time as their new album, Vheissu, which came out via Island/Sub City this Oct. 18 and has sold over 90,000 copies to date in the U.S.

The band have also posted a behind-the-scenes look at the making of their "Image Of The Invisible" video. You can check out the making-of clip in QuickTime format (lo/med/hi).
