Post-hardcore band Thursday provided many folks’ stepping stone into the Land of Emo. And while scores of bands attempted to copy the New Jersey dudes’ sound, there was something authentic and raw about it that’s yet to be duplicated. Between 2001’s Full Collapse and 2003’s War All the Time, Thursday carved out their place and made it cool for boys to cry again. Back on tour to celebrate those two landmark albums, Thursday’s legacy is a testament to a sound that defined a generation and continues to make an impact.
