Screamo pioneers Thursday tried their go at something like the Radiohead or Nine Inch Nails paradigm last year by selling a limited-edition split 12-inch/CD combo with like-minded Japanese ragers Envy online as their first post-major-label music release. Their point apparently proven, the group released new album Common Existence via indie label Epitaph earlier this year. Luckily for them, the opening bands will attract an audience likely too young to care about label politics in the first place. With Fall of Troy, Young Widows, Moving Mountains, and Kiss Kiss.
