Thursday Unveil First New Song In 13 Years

Bet you didn’t expect this. Thursday have released “Application for Release From the Dream,” their first new song in 13 years.

“Application for Release From the Dream” is also their first fully independent release in 25 years. Upon the song’s release, the band shared a reflective statement:

“That’s 25 years since we set out in a small white van to play basements and VFW Halls – attics, kitchens and back yards – with a bunch of burned CDRs marked in black Sharpie: Summer Tour ’99.”

“In those 25 years, there were so many highway breakdowns, so many emergency rooms, run-ins with the law. So much time laughing in the studio, so many hours huddled together backstage or loading gear in the rain. And yes, 25 years of legal disputes and public blowouts.

“But now we are free. Free to make our own mistakes. Free to turn this band into whatever we dream it to be, whether we want to make it a collective of rotating members, a small cottage industry, a publishing house, a record label, or just a group of friends still having fun together after all these years.”

Listen to the song below.

Thursday are currently touring the U.S. They’ll head overseas for more shows this summer. See all their dates here.
