Thursday return from hiatus to play Wrecking Ball festival

Being fair, the line-up is that good you would get the band get together to play.
Thursday have returned from their indefinite hiatus to play this summer’s Wrecking Ball festival.

“Five years ago, we found it necessary to end Thursday for reasons beyond our control,” singer Geoff Rickly explains. “Earlier this year, we were able to reconcile all of our differences and spend time together. This is a vital component to what we loved about being in Thursday and we’re happy to say that we’ll be playing this show as the same line-up that began touring together on ‘Full Collapse’ and jointly worked on every record since.”

“At our peak, Thursday were a band fiercely devoted to local music, community and compassion,” Rickly continues. “We plan to use this occasion to renew our commitment to those ideas. As such, we’ll be donating part of the proceeds from Wrecking Ball to SisterSong, an Atlanta-based Reproductive Justice Collective.”

The band will be joined on the bill for the Atlanta festival by (deep breath – Ed) Quicksand, L7, Dinosaur Jr, Drive Like Jehu, American Football, The Julie Ruin, otion City Soundtrack, Bouncing Souls, The Promise Ring, Deafheaven, Piebald, Touché Amoré, Bayside, Tigers Jaw, Bully, Joyce Manor, Ceremony, Turnstile, The Menzingers, Diarrhea Planet, Mothers, Jeff Rosenstock and loads more.
