Former Thursday frontman Geoff Rickly posted an interesting blog yesterday about his experiences on last year's Warped Tour.
The following is an excerpt from the post, which can be read in full here
"Blood on the Dance Floor makes me feel old and irrelevant. Why? Because I don't know what the fuck it is. It's electro-pop-scream-metal-violence in goth drag that celebrates "cumming" on the audience with giant foam canons and has one of the most positive, inspirational record inserts that I've ever read. It's either horrible nonsense or next-level art. But it's truly made me realize, I don't know the difference. So the singer with red hair and scary make-up told me that Thursday's song, 'You know,' he says, 'the car crash one' changed his life. Luckily I was wasted and said, 'How can I change it back?' Rimshot, dad... Am I right?"
