The long awaited new album, Common Existence
, from New Jersey's own Thursday
is finally here! With many years in the making, due to singer Geoff Rickly having writer's block, the album will definitely not disappoint any fans. It has the essence of War All The Time
and a little bit of A City By The Light Divided
. The song "Last Call" screams out to you, while "Friends In The Armed Forces" could be the anthem of the album. Tom Keeley and Steve Pedulla's guitar parts are edgy, while Tim Payne's bass playing and Tucker Rule's drumming are solid. While we know Geoff's lyrics are passionate, he expresses his most poetic words on this album to make it come full circle.
With 11 years under their belt, Thursday has definitely come a long way. Common Existence is their most creative and experimental album yet. The song "Time's Arrow" doesn't reflect a typical Thursday's song due to the acoustic guitars, but nonetheless, the song remains powerful and captures the serenity of art. The new album drops Feb. 17th through Epitaph
, which is a debut for Thursday. They will be kicking off the Rockstar Taste of Chaos
tour on Feb. 14th at the Palladium in Los Angeles, so check them out especially if you want to have a rockin' Valentine's. Also check out this rad live video of their new single. Much to look forward to!Friends In The Armed Forcescontribution by Mike Kwon
