New Brunswick, New Jersey's revered and influential rock band Thursday will embark on their final North American tour tomorrow, November 23rd. Thursday have announced that the band will go on indefinite hiatus, with plans to celebrate their successful thirteen year career together on the road for a series of absolutely riveting North American live performances.
The band will be touring in support of their sixth studio album, the critically heralded Epitaph release, No Devolución. Thursday have released four fan-coveted studio albums, including 2009’s Common Existence, in the ten years since the release of Full Collapse, Thursday’s sophomore album that pulled them from the underground basement and VFW shows they were used to and propelled the band to the forefront of mainstream rock with its unique melding of emotionally charged post-punk and aggressive post-hardcore.
“Thursday will be playing our final shows, starting tomorrow night and ending with our tour in Australia,” says Geoff Rickley. “We would love to see you all one more time. So please, if we're near your city, come out and have fun with us. It has been our pleasure and honor to make music for such wonderful people over the last thirteen years.”
