With a longstanding legacy and a devoted fanbase, Thursday drummer Tucker Rule says the band are more inspired than ever.
On April 10, 2001, Thursday released Full Collapse on Victory Records. At the time, a handful of punk and alternative publications thought the New Jersey-based rockers might be on to something, but mainstream outlets like Rolling Stone and Pitchfork found it to be underwhelming and confusing.
Thursday's sophomore album Full Collapse turns 20 today, and as we said in our 20th anniversary review, it's not just the band's breakthrough but one of the most pivotal albums in the emo and post-hardcore explosion of the early 2000s.
Members of several well-known bands have formed a supergroup. That group is called Fire Sale and the band includes Chris Swinney (The Ataris), Matt Riddle (No Use For A Name / Face To Face), Tim MacMillar (Protest The Hero), Tucker Rule (Thursday), and Pedro Aida (Fun Size / Ann Beretta).
The year-end lists keep coming and here's one from Thursday frontman Geoff Rickly.
Our guest this episode is Tucker Rule of the band Thursday, an amazing drummer and, as it turns out a hell of a nice guy. Tucker is a self-taught monster on the drums and you can hire him perform on your recordings now over at SoundBetter.com (link below). His experience runs deep and covers a ton of ground and a drummer and musician.
Tucker Rule is a touring and session drummer who currently resides in Brooklyn, NY. At 18 his mother purchased him a drum kit and the rest is history. He started his musical career in the NJ post-hardcore band, Thursday, and has been working hard ever since.
Most of you know Tucker as the drummer for Thursday, or maybe from his work with Frank Iero and the Future Violents... We talked about his evolution from punk basement show drummer to hired gun and beyond.
