Ready to feel old? No Devolución is Thursday’s sixth full-length. The New Brunswick, N.J. post-hardcore sextet has had remarkable staying power in their 14 years together, through a landmark album for the genre (2001’s Full Collapse) and a stint on a major label that yielded critically acclaimed work, but surely not the volume for which the suits were looking. They returned to the indie world with 2009’s Common Existence, a record that, along with 2006’s A City by the Light Divided, begged the question of whether or not Thursday was going through the motions, having reached a sonic comfort zone and not wanting (or needing, really) to stray from it, especially with their legacy and fanbase largely intact. Fortunately, No Devolución is the antithesis of that perceived stagnation, a record that’s ambitious and even fearless in its scope. Thursday has taken a sound that’s familiar and arguably overwrought, and breathed new life into it.
