Band Formation and Waiting
Thursday was formed in 1997 by vocalist Geoff Rickly, guitarist Tom Keeley, guitarist Bill Henderson, bassist Tim Payne, and drummer Tucker Rule, at which time the band began playing basement shows in New Brunswick and the surrounding tri-state area. The band played their first “official” show on December 31, 1998 in Rickly’s basement alongside Midtown, Saves the Day and Poison the Well.

They recorded demos to hand out at shows and in the summer of 1999, teamed up with MP3.com for their first official release, the 1999 Tour EP that featured demos of songs that would be soon be found on their debut EP, Waiting, released December 6, 1999, on New Jersey-based Eyeball Records.


Full Collapse
Hesitant to join a larger label, but with full support from Eyeball Records, Thursday signed to Chicago, Illinois-based label Victory Records. The band’s relationship with Victory Records would be a troubled one, as the band and the label rarely saw eye to eye.
