Thursday’s Geoff Rickly hasn’t left music behind since the band’s breakup at the end of 2011. After a brief hiatus, he is back recording music, as well as playing shows that include intimate stops alongside other big names in post-hardcore.
Rickly will be at a house in Wallingford alongside Zena Rd. (the new project of Garrett Klahn, formerly of Texas Is The Reason), and Terrible Things (with Fred Mascherino, formerly of Taking Back Sunday).
Where is this house, you may ask? That’s part of it. The actual locations on this 5-date ‘tour’ are only revealed to people who buy tickets, and then only on the day of the show. There are no tickets at the door, and according to a blog post by tour sponsors Property Of Zack, only 50 spots will be sold.
Talk about intimate. So no crashing, or you’ll ruin things for everyone.
According to that post, Rickly and Klahn will play solo acoustic sets, while Terrible Things will play as a full band.
Today Rickly launched a Facebook page for his new solo project, including a link to download his first release for free.
Named simply “Mixtape #1,” the release is 7 tracks of are hauntingly stripped down songs, including a cover of Usher’s “Climax” that toes the line between sexy and creepy-as-bollocks. Keep the lights on for this one.
After these dates Zena Rd. and Terrible Things will go on to play 3 more house shows, while Rickly will be joining Circa Survive’s Anthony Green for a few tour dates.
