Thursday is an American emo band from New Brunswick, New Jersey. Formed in 1997, Thursday has been noted as “a major player in the post-hardcore scene of the 21st century,” and is credited as one of the key bands to bring a darker version of the emo sound to new prominence at the dawn of the new millennium. The group is composed of Geoff Rickly, Tom Keeley, Tim Payne, Tucker Rule, Steve Pedulla, and Andrew Everding. They have released six studio albums, their most recent being No Devolución, which was released in April 2011 on Epitaph Records. Every year, Thursday has held a performance on or within days of New Year’s Eve, as a tradition for local New Jersey fans.
Thursday announced its hiatus in 2011. Rickly is currently the frontman for United Nations, a hardcore group co-founded with Glassjaw vocalist Daryl Palumbo.
