Thursday

A significant player in the early 21st century's post-hardcore scene, Thursday formed in 1997 in New Brunswick, NJ. Led by vocalist Geoff Rickly, the band's initial lineup also included bassist Tim Payne, drummer Tucker Rule, and guitarists Steve Pedulla and Tom Keeley. After issuing their debut, 1999's Waiting, through the New York-based indie label Eyeball Records, the band signed to Chicago's influential Victory label for 2001's Full Collapse. Tours alongside Boy Sets Fire and Sparta helped support the album, which cracked the Billboard 200 at number 178. Thursday's frequent gigging and furious passion fueled a grassroots response, and by 2002, the band was on the main stage of the Warped Tour and enjoying MTV support for the single "Understanding in a Car Crash."

Thursday signed to Island Records in the wake of their breakthrough success, although they issued the 2002 live EP Five Stories Falling through Victory as a placeholder for their impending major-label debut. The ambitious song arc of War All the Time arrived in September 2003 and was met with considerable critical acclaim for its ruminations on 9/11, its personal lyrics, and a wildly shifting, kitchen-sink approach to pensive post-hardcore. Having played keyboards on the album, Andrew Everding was later added as a full-time member. Extensive touring behind the record took its toll on the band, however, as tensions between members and personal problems mounted. Rickly was additionally diagnosed with epilepsy, and allergic reactions to his medication eventually culminated in a grisly scene in May 2004, during the band's performance at California's Coachella Festival. Thursday's set was cut short as Rickly began coughing up blood and was unable to continue. After he recovered, the bandmates returned to the road for a full U.K. tour. Although still unhappy, Thursday felt a responsibility to finish out their existing tour commitments, with that summer's Warped to be their final run.

Issues between the bandmembers gradually abated during the festival's run, however, as Thursday found themselves having more fun playing than ever. The lineup decided to stick together. First taking some time off for themselves, the re-energized musicians then headed back into the studio with producer Dave Fridmann (the Flaming Lips, Mogwai). A City by the Light Divided, "the album that almost never was," appeared in May 2006, followed by a tour supporting both the album and the Shirts for a Cure organization. Thursday parted ways with Island Records in early 2007 and canceled the majority of their tour dates, but not before recording two live performances in New Jersey. Portions of the footage were made available on Kill the House Lights, a retrospective CD/DVD package released by Victory Records in October 2007.

Thursday's next project was a split album with the Japanese band Envy, which arrived in late 2008. That same year also saw the band inking a new deal with Epitaph Records. Reprising their relationship with Dave Fridmann, the group retreated to the studio to record Common Existence, which melded their post-hardcore swagger with new elements of indie rock and New Wave. Common Existence was released by Epitaph in early 2009, and Thursday joined the Rockstar Taste of Chaos Tour in support of the project. In 2010, Thursday went into the studio to start work on a new album with producer Dave Fridmann at his Tarbox Road Studio. Their sixth studio album, No Devolución, was released the following year. ~ Johnny Loftus & Corey Apar, Rovi

jblackjr
so sad these guys are calling it quits. top 5 all time band for me. can't wait to see them one last time in just a few days!
One of the best bands ever!
Their sound and style is so genuine. Thursday is a band that has never sold out and has never played to all the hype of the current emo movement. True post-hardcor e fans will always give bands like Thursday the most credit.

Don't you hate it when somebody talks crap about a band and doesn't even have the nerve to have a public profile?
patoneal
Amazing band...Geoff , always a good frontman, is getting better in the vocal department when they play live. I saw them about 5 years ago in Milwaukee, let's just say he sounds a tad more in key on the albums than live! BUT, saw then with Dillinger and wow, can you say a 180? He even made a joke about it and said, "I was known as Tone-Deaf Geoff." Well, he got much-much better. "Procelin" remains one of the greatest rock songs out there. Boo-yah!
Thursday is beyond amazing. Full Collapse and War All The Time are kick a**. Geoff Rickly is a genius.
phantomopera r o x

A City By the Light Divided/Kill the House Lights are my two biggest disappointme n t s , sub-par following there previous CDs
Full Collapse was probably my favorite release during my high school days... outside of De-Loused in the Comatorium by The Mars Volta.
It was incredibly original and passionate for the time, but unfortunatel y they ended up getting sucked into the ever-increas i n g deluge of "emo-core" groups.
Thursday's newer music is still better than 90% of the stuff out there in that genre, but they definitely lost a bit of their edge.

thursday's always a good day :)
To agree with freakshow down there there early music up to war all the time is by far the greatest sampling of their RAW talent the lyrics to their songs are like stories unto their own the rythyms and vocals ... could you find any better. The new stuff i havent really gotten into (not that i dont like it) but they are growing as a band guess i just like their earlier stuff. But all together great band great music great addition to any music library
finchtheman
Thursday is an amazing band. I have all their albums on my Ipod.
>Thursday Rules<

Cannot wait to see these guys tear it up with Hot Water Music at Terminal 5 in NYC tomorrow!!
Hate that these guys are considered emo...they are so much better than that...they did get sucked in by corporate bs like Nirvana (if you will) but definitely worth listening to their early stuff...grea t lyrics, great vocals, and yeah, great emotion without being the fake emo-emotion
Nah, the arent slipping War All the Time was one of the most lyrical albums of 2003, and all of Thrusdays albums. AMAZING STILL!! and there previous record company was pressuring them to make emo music thats why they left, so im expecting great stuff for their new album.
Full Collapse was the best album these guys put out. Unique sound for that genre at the time. Sadly, they went down hill after that IMO.
Still love to remember all the summer nights with "Understandi n g in a car crash" blaring... ahh... memories!!!
