Thrice have posted a studio update laying out some plans for the recording of their next album.

The band is planning on tracking 13 songs, with 10-11 making the record. They're also "building various wooden devices to make [their] studio sound better."

"Major themes are starting to shape up in my head lyrically," adds vocalist/guitarist Dustin Kensrue, "but I’ll keep them to myself for the time being."

No word yet on who will be releasing this, the followup to the two installments of The Alchemy Index.
