Nothing But Theives announce Autumn UK tour.
Nothing But Thieves have announced a headline tour of the UK in October and November, which will follow the release of their self-titled debut album on October 16th via RCA Victor. The 13-date run will include a show at London’s Electric Ballroom, which will be their biggest headline show thus far, having sold out the Tufnell Park Dome in London earlier this summer. Tickets can be purchased on pre-sale now with general on sale starting 7th August.
Available for pre-order now, ‘Nothing But Thieves’ features singles ‘Trip Switch’, ‘Ban All The Music’ and ‘Graveyard Whistling’. A new track from the deluxe edition of the album ‘Honey Whiskey’ is now available for instant download with pre-orders and is streaming here. With recent releases off the album gaining multiple playlist additions across XFM, Kerrang! and Radio 1 - where the band also bagged Hottest Record In The World and Track Of The Day accolades - things have really moved up a gear from their early days writing in Guitarist Dom Craik’s Southend garage.
Nothing But Thieves entered 2015 as one of the UK’s most exciting new bands, buoyed by 2015 tips from iTunes, Spotify and XFM among others, support slots with the likes of Twin Atlantic and a stand-out live performance at one of this year’s NME Awards shows. Their summer has included multiple festival dates worldwide and a stint supporting Young Guns, as well as the support slot on Muse’s Rock In Roma show where they played to a stadium filled with over 30,000 fans.
It is fair to say Conor Mason (vocals), Joe Langridge-Brown (Guitars), Dom Craik (guitars), Philip Blake (bass) and James Price (drums) form a definitive and unique sound. At once thunderous yet delicate, raw yet methodical, they evoke the profound dynamics of music’s more creative imaginations. Drawing inspiration from the bombast of Muse, the playfulness of Kasabian, the unpredictability of Arcade Fire, the songs re-imagine the majesty of rock and roll, simultaneously kicking and comforting the listener. It’s a worthwhile adventure. Dom’s electronic “noodling”, Conor’s “old school” rocking, and Joe’s forays into “Riff Central” fused to form “a weird monster,” which the band grabbed by the tail and rode as it thrashed. As Joe shaped lyrics from the melodies the songs dictated, the definitive Nothing But Thieves sound began to take shape and together with producer Julian Emery (Lissie) their album was born. Recorded between Angelic Studios, Little Drummer Boy and Hits & Arts Studios and mixed by Cenzo Townshend (Maccabees,U2, Florence & The Machine, Thirty Seconds To Mars) and Adam Noble (Placebo, Don Broco, Kids In Glass Houses), the album will undoubtedly take the band to the next level. They’ve always had the songs, now they have the platform.
