In the last week of 2011, Thursday performed their last show in the U.S. following the announcement that they were calling it quits. And while the NJ post-hardcore band still has dates in Australia coming up in February and March, drummer Tucker Rule looks like he found himself an interesting new gig.

Earlier this week, Tucker and former From Autumn To Ashes guitarist Brian Deneeve served as part of the backing group for UK/Irish boy band The Wanted during their performance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. It’s unclear whether or not this was just a one off gig for the pair. Either way, it’s pretty odd to see the two hardcore musicians not only backing a boy band, but also on a TV show like Ellen. You can watch the performance featuring Tucker and Deneeve in the video above.
