Thursday Return With First New Song In 13 Years

Friday, 12 April 2024 Written by Jon Stickler

Thursday have shared their first new song in over a decade.

Application For Release From The Dream was debuted during their intimate gig in Albany, New York last night (April 11), and marks Geoff Rickly and band's first song together since their 2011 LP 'No Devolución'.

The emo-leaning post-rock ballad also serves as the New Jersey group's first release in 25 years without a record label. Introducing the song with a reflective post on social media, they said:

"That's 25 years since we set out in a small white van to play basements and VFW Halls — attics, kitchens and back yards — with a bunch of burned CDRs marked in black Sharpie: Summer Tour ‘99.

"In those 25 years, there were so many highway breakdowns, so many emergency rooms, run-ins with the law. So much time laughing in the studio, so many hours huddled together backstage or loading gear in the rain. And yes, 25 years of legal disputes and public blowouts. But now we are free. Free to make our own mistakes. Free to turn this band into whatever we dream it to be, whether we want to make it a collective of rotating members, a small cottage industry, a publishing house, a record label, or just a group of friends still having fun together after all these years.

"So tonight we step on stage at a tiny independent venue like we would’ve played when we were releasing 'Full Collapse' (23 years ago this week) or again when we released 'No Devolución' (13 years ago this week). The kind of place we hope we get to keep playing at for as long as they’ll have us. Because no matter the size of the stages we’ve played in those 25 years, we remain— at heart — a small band, a bunch of kids still screaming in a basement. But we’re your small band and we love you. Thanks for everything. We’ll see you at midnight, in your time zone. "It’s just a moment now."

Thursday are nearing the end of a run of intimate club shows in North America, with UK and European dates scheduled for the summer, including appearances at Outbreak Fest in Manchester and HellFest in Clisson, France.

The band will also play When We Were Young Festival, Las Vegas in October, where they'll perform 2001's 'Full Collapse' in its entirety.
