Thursday + Quicksand
Tuesday, March 13 @ 7:30 pm - 11:30 pm
Post-hardcore pioneers, THURSDAY have announced they’re coming out of retirement with their first run of shows in Australia since 2012. Officially reforming in 2016, they’ll bring the tour to The Gov for an All Ages show on Tuesday 13 March 2018.
Joining them on all dates is influential New York City post-hardcore legends, QUICKSAND.
Over the course of their active years, Thursday produced six eclectic albums. None were more representative of their distinctive sound than 2003’s War All The Time. Armed with the backing of major label, Island Records, the album continued to elevate them as one of the most complex and exciting bands of the decade. After pioneering the post-hardcore genre, the band officially disbanded in 2013.
Emerging from the New York City hardcore scene of the 90’s, QUICKSAND delivered a masterclass over two albums on what would be a stylistic blueprint for many bands to follow. They will release Interiors this November, which many attribute as their best album to date. It arrives deliberately unannounced, two decades after the pioneering post-hardcore quartet’s last album. Made completely on the band’s own terms, Interiors has a power, strength and subtlety that will likely stun you. There are no wasted notes, no flab, and no excess whatsoever. It is absolutely perfect.
