Published Mar 22, 2016New Jersey post-hardcore outfit Thursday have confirmed that their hiatus is over, as the Full Collapse makers will rebuild and reunite this summer to play the Wrecking Ball Festival in Atlanta.
Running August 12 to 14, Wrecking Ball finds Thursday near the top of the bill, alongside fellow headliners like Quicksand, L7, Dinosaur Jr., and Drive Like Jehu. Confirming their part through Thursday's official Facebook page, the band wrote a simple "Believe It."
While it's as yet unclear if there are any other reunion dates in the works, the Wrecking Ball performance will be the first concert from the band since an appearance at Philadelphia's Theatre of Living Arts on December 30, 2011.
Thursday had issued a group statement in 2011 saying that they were going on an indefinite hiatus due to "an endless series of personal difficulties." They did, however, note that there was no falling out between the band members, and that they would likely "continue to create" at a later time. Apparently, that time is now.
Thursday's last album was 2011's No Devolución, though the band issued a 15th anniversary edition of their debut LP, Waiting, in 2015.
The Wrecking Ball lineup also includes Civ, American Football, the Julie Ruin, Diarrhea Planet, the Bouncing Souls, the Promise Ring, Deafheaven, Juliette and the Licks, American Nightmare, Rainer Maria, Anti-Flag, Motion City Soundtrack, Piebald, Touche Amore, Good Riddance, Ceremony, Burn, Cold Cave and more.
