New Jersey's powerful cutting edge rock band Thursday will be hitting the road for a series of absolutely riveting North American live performance. The revered and influential band will be touring in support of their latest release, the critically heralded Epitaph release No Devolución. They will be joined on the first leg of the tour by Southern metalcore outfit Maylene & The Sons of Disaster and on the second leg with Philadelphia art rockers MewithoutYou and the New Jersey trio Screaming Females.
To kick off the tour, Thursday is premiering the newly remixed track “No Answers” from this year’s No Devolución by Big Black Delta (http://www.bigblackdelta.com, bbdlp1 Out Now), the solo project of Mellowdrone vocalist / bassist Jonathan Bates. Bates has recently remixed songs for M83 and Daft Punk; and you can listen to the song here here.
On their sixth studio record, the influential band entered the studio with producer Dave Fridmann (Flaming Lips, MGMT) to create an enthralling and explosive sound merging elements of post-rock, indie rock, art rock and experimental music with Thursday’s post-hardcore roots to create a beautifully cathartic sound unlike anything before. Live the band’s set has only grown more enthralling.
“New Jersey hardcore act Thursday upstaged the headliner. Their latest Epitaph Records album No Devolución, is their best to date and finds the musicians re-teaming with producer Dave Fridmann. Its well-executed 45-minute set featured thought-provoking projections on a screen (black-and-white instructional medical and atomic bomb films, Soviet cartoons from the ’50s) and an ample sampling of the new songs, which all came off mesmerizing.” – Live Review, Orange County Register
