Thursday Announces Indefinite Hiatus
First Thrice announce that they'll be going on an indefinite hiatus, and now Thursday do the same?
With yesterdays announcement that Thrice was going on an indefinite hiatus, today, Thursday announced that they'll be doing the same thing. Poking fun at the coincidence of both bands making similar announcements, Thursday wrote in a statement:
“look thrice, Imma Let you finish, but…”
Yup. Yesterday thrice, today Thursday. Crazy coincidence for two bands that have led such parallel and intersecting lives. We would’ve spaced our announcement out and given the dust a chance to settle but we are about to play a bunch of shows and we didn’t want anyone to miss the chance to see us one more time, so here it goes…
The statement goes on to read:
Despite the fantastic year that the band has enjoyed, creatively, things haven’t been as easy for us on a personal level. Without diving into detail, it’s fair to say that this year has been an endless series of personal difficulties. We haven’t had any falling out and are all still close. I’m sure that we will continue to create, in some capacity, together. We’ve talked about turning Thursday into something else: a non-profit, a band that only records sporadically, a collection of other projects… Underneath it all, the personal circumstances involved make it impossible to continue Thursday in the spirit that has made it special. So, we stop. For now, at least.
