Thursday Announce 2022 Tour With ‘Dream Lineup’ of Veteran Emo Acts
Thursday have revealed U.S. dates for a jam-packed package tour in early 2022. To be headlined by the influential Geoff Rickly-led post-hardcore group, the trek will find its supporting bands in a hand-picked trio of classic emo acts — Cursive, former Sunny Day Real Estate singer Jeremy Enigk and The Appleseed Cast.
Thursday, of course, are the chic screamo popularizers who first blew up the scene with 2001's Full Collapse. The forlorn Cursive made a name for themselves in the same era on Midwestern emo label Saddle Creek Records. The silky-voiced Enigk has performed solo since last parting ways with emo favorites Sunny Day Real Estate. The post-rock-indebted The Appleseed Cast were a linchpin band for 2000s emo label Deep Elm.

Announcing the tour this week, Thursday said, "We couldn't be more excited about our first full U.S. tour back in action. No exaggeration: this is our dream lineup. We can barely believe we've pulled it off. Friends, heroes and collaborators, all pulling out the stops and turning back the clocks."
Thursday previously announced a string of holiday shows with Laura Jane Grace for this December, including one in their home state of New Jersey.
Thursday's most recent album, No Devolución, emerged in 2011. Rickly has also performed with hardcore act United Nations and the alt-rock No Devotion.
