Thursday arrives on Wednesday this week in Lawrence. That's the band Thursday, a post-hardcore act from New Jersey. The group's sound is based upon punk atmospherics and hardcore's visceral instrumentation. Droning and chiming guitar riffs layered atop heavy bass lines echo British influences such as The Cure, The Smiths, and Joy Division as well as New York City's Sonic Youth. This element serves as a connection between Thursday and current art rockers such as Interpol and Cursive.
