Thursday have posted "Black Smoke" on their myspace. LOST, anyone? Equally cryptic as the aforementioned television show, there is also a countdown for December 3. Could this date mark our first listen to their upcoming Common Existence?

Thursday's new album will be called Common Existence and will be released on February 17, 2009 on Epitaph Records. A video of Geoff Rickly talking about the album can be seen on Spin.

Seth Werkheiser of Buzzgrinder has responded to Geoff Rickly's blog about music being too safe.
Blog ExcerptSecond, Geoff why wasn't "blogging" about this when his band Thursday appeared on MTV, or when his albums were sold at BestBuy? No doubt his hard work and dedication to his music got him where he is today, but corporate giants helped, too.

The limited edition version of United Nations' self-titled album will ship this week. Eyeball Records had this to say about the situation.
StatementDue to production issues, the Limited Edition of the United Nations record will ship this week. Since the beginning we have experienced delay after delay, issue after issue. We are glad to finally be getting these copies in-hand and we will ship them out as soon as they come to our office. xoxox

Geoff Rickly (Thursday, United Nations) wrote a guest blog for MTV's Headbanger's Blog about the lack of cause in a one-time revolutionary genre.
From the BlogIn the recent past, bands as diverse as Fugazi, Megadeath, Pearl Jam and Ministry all had songs that raised questions about political corruption, social inequity, personal responsibility and artistic freedom. Today, we see artists more concerned with friend requests on MySpace or wanting to “shake it” than with the problems of our lives.
Anton Djamoos on 09/08/08 - 07:10 PM
MTV has written an informative article about how United Nations' new album may not be able to be sold in stores due to copyright issues. There is also great discussion on the ideals behind the band and the response from their myspace feature.
From the Article"To me, it was like, maybe speaking sincerely about things isn't enough to make people pay attention. Maybe you have to make fun of people — and be a mirror — to show them how stupid they look, to get their attention. That's the idea. Punk is just way too safe these days, so we're hoping by making some audacious claims and doing some strange things and breaking a few laws, we can get people to think at least. It's the idea that...

Did you say, "I wouldn't call myself a critic, per se, but in my immediate peer group I'm known to be 'in the know.' As a matter of fact, I think you'd be hard pressed to find someone with a record collection that's half as good as mine. And seriously, that dude just can't sing. AUTO-TUNE central... I did intern in a studio, once, not really sure how it's possible for him to be both out of key and Auto-Tuned but whatever, worst singer ever."

Our friends at AltPress recently did an interview with Geoff Rickly (United Nations) about how the new band came about, the realization that they are screamo, and a new album that is similar to Kidz Bop (seriously). Check it out here. Hey, new album posted on their myspace tomorrow?

Details for the pre-order of Thursday and Envy's split LP together have been announced. Read it below or here.
Pre-Order InformationAfter months of anticipation, we are happy to finally announce the upcoming pre-order for the outrageously good Thursday/Envy split LP+CD. It will be a limited edition LP+CD set, which means the CD comes free inside of the LP format; there will be no separated CD or LP versions. This means it probably won't be available in Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Circuit City, or most "record" stores in the mall. But it will certainly be available at your local independently owned record store, while supplies last. We're not exactly sure how limited it will be yet; maybe 10,000,...

United Nations' self-titled release will be available on September 9, 2008 through Eyeball Records. The band, much ballyhooed for its inclusion of members from influential groups Thursday and Glassjaw, is described as "[featuring] prominent members of two bands you love, one band you hate and a few you never heard of." Pre-order the album here.

Message from the BandHey all - We are currently packing our bags for a last minute trip to Belgium, replacing Good Charlotte on this year's amazing Groezrock Festival (where we get to play alongside some of our favorite bands), as well as a tour of the Philippines!

An AP reader recently saw Thursday in concert and spoke with Geoff about the upcoming United Nations project, including announcing the producer.
Fan ReportAt the Thursday show on Sunday, I spoke with Geoff Rickly about United Nations. He said it's coming along at the pace of as much as Daryl Palumbo is available, and that Daryl's health is actually much better since he now can receive shots to help fight Crohn's on-the-spot.

Geoff also said he and Tim Giles will be producing/mixing/mastering the CD. Thursday will be writing immediately following their New Years Eve show. Full show review and comments from the band members can be found here.

I spoke to Geoff Rickly of Thursday recently about the new CD/DVD, Kill the House Lights. Here's what he had to say to dispel some confusion about the track listing we posted earlier.
Geoff Says...That listing of clips for the dvd side of Kill the House Lights is the Documentary side. There is also a performance side that does have Jet Black. It's forty-five minutes of the starland show which is the most we could salvage from a hard-drive crash that happened during the recording of the show. I know it's only MY OPINION and I am IN THE BAND so I'm totally biased... BUT we killed ourselves making this DVD and I think it's pretty awesome-- it has clips of us in my old basement all the...
