Following up on yesterday’s reports, New Jersey screamo legends Thursday have officially announced that they are reuniting, and will play their first show in five years at Wrecking Ball festival at the Masquerade in Atlanta on August 13-14. More details, including the lineup and ticket sales, are available here. About the reunion show, Geoff Rickly explained:
“We said yes on Sunday because we couldn’t say no to THAT show. Literally had no plans to reunite b4.”
Other than the Wrecking Ball appearance, Thursday currently do not have plans for any more shows or new material, but we’ll keep you posted as more updates on the band surface. They released their final album No Devolucion in April 2011 through Epitaph Records, just seven months before announcing their breakup.
