Please Come Home is the first studio album by Dustin Kensrue, released in 2007.


The album contains eight songs, which Kensrue has emphasized was a reflection of the albums/EPs he used to buy as a kid.[citation needed]


The album was recorded in the studio of Thrice lead guitarist Teppei Teranishi, who also played piano and organ on the album. Electric guitars and drums were recorded by long-time friend and Thrice guitar technician, Chris Jones.


The album was planned for release in October 2006, but was delayed to 2007 due to issues recording and acquiring a label to distribute it.

On October 10, 2006, it was announced that Kensrue had signed with Equal Vision Records, and that the label would release his debut solo album.[3] On November 7, "I Knew You Before" was made available for streaming via Kensrue's Myspace account.[4] Please Come Home was released on January 23, 2007 through Equal Vision.[3] In June, Kensrue went on a tour of the U.S. alongside Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine.[5]
