Singers from Bayside, Saves The Day, Thursday and more come together for Dayton, Ohio

The great city of Dayton, Ohio has been hit with back to back tragedies this year. With the unthinkable event that took place earlier this month, when an active shooter opened fire in the city’s Oregon District and killed nine people and injured dozens more. As if that wasn’t enough Dayton was also ravaged earlier this summer by fifteen tornadoes on Memorial Day.

So suffice it to say the community could use a little morale boost as well as a helping hand, and enter the great singers of Bayside, Saves The Day, Thursday and more to be a part of Dayton United: A Benefit For The Dayton Foundation. The event will take place August 28th, at the Dayton Masonic Live.

If you’re in the area be sure to head on over and support this great cause. Check out this acoustic version of Bayside’s “Sick, Sick, Sick” below to get you in the mood.

New Music Video: Thursday – “This Side of Brightness”

As you’re no doubt aware at this point, Thursday recently released a 15th anniversary edition of their landmark debut album, “Waiting.” Today, they’ve released a music video for the track “This Side of Brightness.” The clip is culled from years of footage and pictures from the band’s career. Check it out below.

The “Waiting” reissue release dropped back in March. Here’s Dying Scene’s review.



Album Review: Thursday – “Waiting” (Expanded Edition)

Geoff Rickly has composed what I consider to be the best trilogy in terms of post-hardcore, screamo and emo. Thursday‘s Full Collapse and War All the Time are perfect records that touch on disheveled lives in very tumultuous times. But that poetry began 15 years ago with Waiting. It’s an iconic and enigmatic album that really drove home that emo never died, and allowed bands like The Cure, The Smiths, The Promise Ring, and Texas Is The Reason (among many others) to live on while simultaneously inspiring acts like Taking Back Sunday and The Used – all ushering a new wave for contemporary bands, à la Touché Amoré, to swim in.

“Where The Circle Ends” for example is something I’m sure La Dispute picked up on in their nascent stage. But if you’re looking for the fuel that started Thursday’s fire, pay attention to tracks like “Porcelain”, “Ian Curtis” and “Streaks In The Sky” – tunes centered around death, life, love and loss. Bill Henderson and Tim Keely’s guitars shine on the record with huge hooks, intricate riffs and really make one of the most dynamic, versatile and guitar-steady pieces of work I’ve ever heard. Manchester Orchestra are the only guys around that come near this musical ingenuity. Thursday make Rickly’s out-of-tune yet passionate vocals work so well and help build on the powerful lyrics he spills. The band’s musicianship has always been their strong point, masking Rickly’s flaws, even after Henderson departed following the release of the album.

Tucker Rule’s drums really highlight the focus and drive of the band as one that’s carefree and just making the music kids like me needed in high school. Screamo’s there too. It’s a lot of genres clashing yet mixing so well. What’s even better to absorb are the demos for tracks like “This Side of Brightness” and “Dying In New Brunswick” which feel so raw and real. Heavier and distorted but still beautiful and telling. These are excellent bonus pieces for fanboys.

As Rickly charts forward with United Nations and his project with the former member of Lostprophets (called No Devotion), I admit I hope he reunites Thursday and offers a new album. Their storytelling is amazing and I’ve never encountered an experience like them. They dropped off the boil in their last couple records but that didn’t alter the impact for me personally. Waiting shaped the way for a lot of bands to emerge and broke us out of the stranglehold of old grunge and nu-metal, but not in a bad way. Music like this just rarely comes by anymore. It definitely broke the shackles that commercial MTV and mainstream VHI tried to place on us. Waiting will always remain a champion debut that thus far, has been untouchable, classic and timeless.
