Thursday is an American post-hardcore band, formed in New Brunswick, NJ in 1997. The foursome recently stopped through Charlotte, N.C. in part of their reunion tour.

The band released their debut album, Waiting, in late 1999 with original guitarist Bill Henderson, who left the band in 2000 and was replaced by Steve Pedulla. Thursday gained popularity with the release of their second album, Full Collapse, in 2001, and released their third album and major label debut, War All the Time, in 2003. The album reached number seven on the US Billboard Top 200 Albums chart.

Thursday followed suit with A City by the Light Divided, in 2006, and two additional albums, Common Existence and No Devolución, before announcing an indefinite hiatus in 2011. In an interview in 2013, frontman Geoff Rickly confirmed that the band had actually disbanded. Three years passed before fans were abruptly hit with the news that Thursday for a reunion in 2016.

The band has been considered an influential band of the post-hardcore music scene in the 21st century and is credited as one of the key bands to popularize the darker emo sound and screaming vocals which came to prominence at the time.
