The New Jersey sextet who released six records, since their formation in 1997 and enjoyed cumulative worldwide sales of over three million units before disbanding in 2011 originally reformed (at two days notice) in 2016 to play the Sound on Sound Festival in Atlanta, although in typical Thursday fashion, it was the charitable element of their performance that enticed them and not the almighty dollar. After triumphant appearances at Riot Fest in Denver and Chicago, 2016 was topped off with magical (sold out) home coming shows at their spiritual home of The Starland Ballroom in NJ.

In 2017, the band undertook a successful 24 date headline tour of the USA with Touche Amore and Basement in tow, as support. Never afraid to wear their hearts (or their politics) on their sleeves the band criss-crossed the USA performing under two sidebanners that read ‘Refugee’s Welcome Here’ and 'Protect Immigrant Communities’ in open defiance of the atrocious politics facing their immigrant brothers and sisters. This outspoken stance not surprisingly garnered both controversy and respect, two notions long synonymous with Thursday.

The band also went on to headline the Northside festival in Brooklyn to a record-breaking crowd.

Don’t call it a comeback and don’t call it nostalgia, the band’s singer Geoff succinctly summarizes their reunion:

‘This coming year, we are going to take the show across all the cities and countries that embraced us so thoroughly "back in the day." You can probably guess a few of them.

The problem with nostalgia, and memory in general, is that 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.

Beyond that, we will only return in the event of new music. And new music will only come if we feel it's truly inspired and adds a new dimension to the band. In our humble opinions, there are only a few bands that have put out records worth coming back for. Bands like Portishead and MBV.

We have loved every minute of these shows. We look forward to 2018 and everything it brings.’
