Thursday have had a busy year and a half since coming back together in early 2016, playing numerous festivals and North American headline tours since.

They have not forgotten their loyal international fans whom they plan to visit throughout 2018, and have just announced tour dates down our way with the added bonus of special guests Quicksand.

Both bands will play their full headline sets in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Adelaide next March.

My Live Nation members can jump on a pre-sale starting 10am on Wednesday, running until 5pm Thursday or until sold out. If you aren’t signed up, you can do so [Here]. General public on sale happens midday on Friday 13th October.
Make a note because you are probably going to need to be on the ball!

Thursday called time on things in 2011, and came back together in early 2016 after being offered a slot on the Wrecking Ball festival. From there, they played Riot Fest, and wrapped 2016 with a big ‘Homecoming‘ show.

The fire kept burning and earlier this year the band took to the road on an extensive North American tour.

After wrapping that, they commented;

We’ve been discussing what to do about this Thursday reunion. This coming year, we are going to take the show outside of North America and play all the 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 the next year and everything it brings.

So you can expect a set-list loaded with the classics.


On the other hand, New York City post-hardcore band Quicksand will come armed with ‘Interiors‘, their first album in 22 years.

The album will be released on November 10th via Epitaph. You can pre-order the album now digitally [Here] and physically [Here].
