It has been 6 years since the post-hardcore band, Thursday disbanded. 14 years of making music including 6 albums under their belt, the band has been together since 1997 when they formed in New Brunswick. Even though they broke up, the band has been hinting since January of 2016 of a possible reunion.
The future for the band has been revealed following a statement made by the band which was posted earlier today. In the statement, the band discusses the final run of shows for the 2017 year and about any potential new music, which according to the band, “will only come if we feel it’s truly inspired and adds a new dimension to the band.”
“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…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).”
Within the statement, the band discloses the problem with said nostalgia.
“…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.”
