New Release Alert: Thursday: Common Existence

The New Brunswick boys are back with a new record entitled Common Existence which is due out February 17th. They've come a long way since Victory Records and their record Full Collapse catapulted them to post-hardcore royalty back in 2001. Although they grew apart from Victory, tons of majors were willing to pick them up and they ended up in the hands of Island Records. The band released two albums with Island, but Thursday simply does not make the kind of music suitable for a huge mainstream radio hit, which is obviously what the label wanted or at least thought they needed.

They got back with Victory briefly to release their DVD Kill The House Lights, but were label-less for a while since then..... until legendary punk label Epitaph Records came along and gave them the complete freedom to explore new territory and do whatever they wanted musically. So with Dave Fridmann (producer of Flaming Lips, MGMT and tons of others) who also produced their last Island release A City By The Light Divided on board once again, Common Existence ventures off into the band's darker and more experimental corners.

From what I've heard so far this album is going to be pretty kick-ass. You can check out their new song "Resuscitation of a Dead Man" on their myspace page.

+ Thursday is also headlining this year's Taste Of Chaos tour
