Critically acclaimed post-hardcore pioneers Thursday, have announced a European Tour in April 2009. The tour, which is set between April 11th and April 19th, will take them through six European countries and the majority of the shows will be part of the "Give It A Name" traveling festivals, with Taking Back Sunday, Underoath, Innerpartysystem and Thursday's label mates Escape The Fate.
Thursday will be touring in support of their highly anticipated new album, Common Existence, due out on February 16th on Epitaph. Recorded with producer/mixer Dave Fridmann (A City By The Light Divided, Mogwai, MGMT, Flaming Lips), Common Existence marks Thursday's fifth studio album which is already receiving rave reviews in the European music press. Rock Sound UK stated that "Each song on the album is fantastic, a few are even spectacular", granting the album an 8/10. Highly acclaimed Q Magazine called Common Existence bands "most consistent body of work to date" (4/5).
The European tour follows their headlining appearance in the "Rockstar Taste of Chaos" Tour in the US, in which they are joined on stage by Bring Me The Horizon and Cancer Bats.
