Thursday Announces Shows, Ponders the Future


Thursday has announced a handful of tour dates for the end of the year. The band will be taking out Pup and Frank Iero. Tour dates are posted below. Tickets go on sale August 11th at 10 am.

Wed/Dec-27 Baltimore, MD @ Rams Head Live
Thu/Dec-28 Huntington, NY @ The Paramount
Fri/Dec-29 Worcester, MA @ The Palladium
Sat/Dec-30 Sayreville, NJ @ Starland Ballroom

The band will also be announcing tour dates for 2018 that include an overseas trek and more North American dates, which will more than likely be the band’s last. There’s a possibility of new music on the horizon but no promise. You can read the band’s full statement below.

Today we’re announcing our last shows for the year. Over the years we’ve used these shows to try out more ambitious set lists and to bring together diverse lineups and spotlight young bands. Glassjaw, Converge, Screaming Females, Circa Survive, Poison the Well, the Blood Brothers, Hotelier, the Gaslight Anthem, mewithoutYou, Lifetime and the Dillinger Escape Plan have all been part of these shows. This year we tried to reflect that mix of nostalgia and discovery by including our old friend Frank Iero (who I’ve known since I drafted him into joining My Chemical Romance, while we were recording their record) and our new friends, PUP (who blew us away when we played together at Northside Festival).
Speaking of nostalgia, we’ve been discussing what to do about this Thursday reunion. This coming year, we are going to take the show outside of North America and play all the countries that embraced us so thoroughly “back in the day.” You can probably guess a few of them. 😉
The problem with nostalgia, and memory in general, is that it’s a destructive process. Much like recording over the same cassette, again and again, the quality degrades with each pass. Put in a modern way, our memory is like a hard drive: the more you try to fit on it, the further it compresses, lowering the quality of the new memory and the original experience, too.
Rather than endlessly overwriting the original experiences that we shared with so many of you, we’ve been discussing how and when to wrap up this trip down memory lane. In the next year, we’ll be announcing our international tours as well as a final group of dates in the US, that will be totally unlike anything we’ve ever attempted to do.
Beyond that, we will only return in the event of new music. And new music will only come if we feel it’s truly inspired and adds a new dimension to the band. In our humble opinions, there are only a few bands that have put out records worth coming back for. Bands like Portishead and MBV.
We have loved every minute of these shows. We look forward to the next year and everything it brings.
Thanks
Thursday

Announce might be too strong of a word (at least at the moment I’m posting this) but Thursday has changed the social media pictures to a tour poster. The band will hit the road late March with Basement and Touche Amore. Tour dates are listed below.

Thursday Also Reuniting For Wrecking Ball Atlanta

thursday
In my excitement about The Anniversary and Hey Mercedes reuniting, I completely overlooked the fact that Thursday is also reuniting as one of the headlining acts for Wrecking Ball Atlanta. Thursday frontman Geoff Rickly said on Twitter “That line-up!! We said yes on Sunday because we couldn’t say no to THAT show. Literally had no plans to reunite b4.”

The festival also features Quicksand, Drive Like Jehu, Gorilla Biscuits, American Football, Rainer Maria, The Promise Ring, and tons more. Check out the flyer below. Wrecking Ball happens August 13th & 14th. Pre-sale starts on April 1st.
