Thursday Announce Split EP w/ Envy on Temporary Residence * Exclusive In-Studio Interview w/ Online Now!

Announces Split EP w/ Japan's ENVY on Temporary Residence * Weekend Performance w/ Method Man * Exclusive In-Studio Interview Airing NOW on!

Atmospheric interludes, samples and strings add a far-reaching scope to their music that skillfully blends the fury and passion they're renowned for, with a graceful cinematic scope... both beautiful and brutal - Kerrang!

City is a rare thing: a disc that reconciles a band's need for discovery with the familiar characteristics that define them... nothing bad could come out of a record this great - Jason Pettigrew / Alternative Press

The awesome irony of a light divided is that, under Dave Fridmann (Flaming Lips), this is the Jersey quintets most riff heavy, unified work yet. Combining the youthful aggression of 2001's Full Collapse (led by stellar anthem "Autobiography of a Nation") and the solid professionalism of their major label debut, 2003's War All The Time, Fridmann guides screamo's best band into stronger (the hooky single "Counting 5-4-3-2-1") and more eclectic (the crushing organ instrumental "The Light") territory - and to their crowning achievement . - Entertainment Weekly

Solid PR is honored and humbled to be tapped to represent one of the most important, honest, and meaningful bands in punk rock today, New Jersey's own THURSDAY.

THURSDAY formed in 1997 and played their first official show on New Year's Eve, 1998 in singer Geoff Rickly's basement w/ friends Midtown, Saves the Day, and Poison the Well. Since then, THURSDAY has gone on to become one of the most important and prestigious bands in all of underground music today.

After releasing critically acclaimed albums on the likes of Eyeball, Victory, and Island Records (three of which, Full Collapse, War All The Time, and A City By The Light Divided, saw the band reach commercial success w/ large sales numbers and high rankings on America's Billboard Charts - as of this year the band broke 1 million records sold), and touring relentlessly w/ the likes of AFI, Thrice, Coheed and Cambria, The Cure, and more, THURSDAY recently went on to release their first DVD collection, Kill The House Lights in October 2007.

Now, ten years after the band's inception, THURSDAY is setting their sites on their latest upcoming release: a split EP w/ Japanese atmospheric-thrash band, Envy, to be released sometime this summer on the Temporary Residence label (Explosions in the Sky, Mono, Young Widows).

In an exclusive interview airing RIGHT NOW, Geoff Rickly sits down w/'s Will Angelos to talk about the making of the upcoming EP, the current state of underground music, THURSDAY side project activity (listen up kids!), and much more revealing information.
