Thursday announced they will be breaking up after their next run of US and Australia shows. This news is a serious bum out to everyone in our band.
Thursday was one of those bands that, when we all were growing up, we were completely blown away by our first listen to Full Collapse. It was that record that shaped much of our outlook on music, our drive of playing in a band, and the proof that certain music can move you in ways that others cannot. I can honestly remember first buying that CD and diagnosing every part of it from start to finish. It was so new and exciting and at the same time so heartfelt and real. It was unlike anything I had ever heard. From that point on, they consistently put out amazing records and continued to inspire not only us, but thousands upon thousands of people across the world with their music.
As we drive to our show in Omaha, Nebraska, we are all pretty quiet listening to their latest record and remembering what it was like to first hear this band as well as agreeing that if it weren’t for them, we most likely would not be doing what we are doing today.
We have had the opportunity to play with them this past May and again on this tour in about a week in Pittsburgh, PA. Do yourself a favor and go support them on their last run of shows. Bands like them do not exist very often and will be missed immensely.
