They've been two of my favorite bands for about as long as I've been listening to good music. To this day, I cannot mention one without mentioning the other when talking about music. They've kind of always gone hand-in-hand for me; "Thrice and Thursday". They have been a big staple in my musical journey as a place of discovery and a point-of-reference to find something both reliable and challenging. Thank you, guys. :)
Like someone else said, you worded it perfectly for me as well.
They've been the standard for contemporary music that I both enjoyed, but perhaps more importantly, respected. Geoff and Dustin are, and perhaps forever will be my two favourite songwriters (Scott Hutchison coming a close third) and their bands have had amazing careers progressing with each and every album...its worth noting that they're two of few bands who haven't experienced line-up changes either.
Thrice and Thursday, you'll be be missed more than I probably even realise right now.
