Thursday & The Fall of Troy touring (dates include Bowery) with Young Widows (who are playing Best Friends Day 8)

by Black Bubblegum

Thursday @ Terminal 5

Thursday is devoted to tour dates. Not only here at BrooklynVegan every Thursday (and really, every day), but the New Brunswick post-hardcore band Thursday who will hit the road in September with The Fall of Troy, tagging Bowery Ballroom (a venue much smaller than their most recent shows at Terminal 5 and Nokia Theatre) on 9/20. Support will rotate, but Bowery will get BV-SXSW 2009 vets Young Widows and the post-rocky Moving Mountains. Full tour dates are below, with all shows currently on sale via Thursday’s Doves Club (general sale kicks off 8/7). Thursday is touring off of their current LP, Common Existence, which was released earlier this year on Epitaph.

Young Widows recently issued an update on new releases and some details with respect to their tour with Thursday:

…we’ll be playing Best Friends Day 8 in Richmond this year! There is somewhat of a twist as Jeremy will be in Finland on the day of the fest… Instead, our very good friend Dave Witte (of Burnt By The Sun, Municipal Waste, Melt Banana, etc…) will be filling in for the show! We are excited to be playing with Dave and making him an honorary Young Widow!

We have two releases to announce, both on Robotic Empire and both to be released in the next couple of months. The first is Evan’s project Bad Secrets, which was born out of improv jam sessions between him and Kodan Armada’s Dan Davis. …[Their] debut will be released on 9″+CD! The second is a Young Widows live record! We had the privilage to play live on WMUC Radio back in April and it was all recorded… [and] it will be released on 12″+CD of a limited number.

Dave Witte on drums for Young Widows? Wow.

Best Friends Day 8 takes place in Richmond from August 20th -23rd and features a killer lineup of heavy, including Torche (who just played MHOW), Strike Anywhere, Coliseum, Brainworms, Magrudergrind, Off With Their Heads (who are coming to Europa), Asshole Parade (who are coming to The Charleston), Cannabis Corpse (them too), Ultra Dolphins, and many more. Flyer is below with all Thursday tour dates…
