Following their storming live set at Glastonbury Festival (a snippet from which went viral at the weekend, with over 2 million views to date), Nothing But Thieves are excited to announce a U.K. tour, which kicks off in Newcastle on November 5th and comes to Liverpool’s o2 Academy on November 11th.
This follows the news that their highly anticipated second album, Broken Machine, will be released on September 8th via RCA. It was produced by Mike Crossey (The 1975, Foals, Arctic Monkeys and Twenty One Pilots to name a few) and recorded at Ranch Studios in California. The first single, Amsterdam, is currently on Radio 1’s A list.
Nothing But Thieves recently completed a sold out underplay tour for fans in the U.K., plus a one off show in Amsterdam, all dates sold out within five minutes of going on sale! Following the below November tour, the band head to the United States for some autumn shows.
To say Nothing But Thieves have been on an epic journey the past 18 months is an understatement. Their debut self titled album has sold over 250k and streamed over 174 Million tracks globally to date. These five lads from Southend have gone from playing to a handful of friends in Essex to sold out shows across the country, Muse tours, festival headlines in Europe and in the US and even South Korea (where they played to over 20,000 people) all of which have gained them a rabid fanbase that follow their every move. The band spent a big chunk of 2016 in America playing shows and performing on everything from Conan O’Brien, James Corden, to Jimmy Kimmel, their album became the bestselling debut from a U.K. rock band in the United States that year.
It’s safe to say Nothing But Thieves are poised yet again on the cusp of another hugely successful album and ready to establish themselves as one of the most important young bands to emerge from the U.K.
Tickets for Nothing But Thieves at the 02 Academy are on sale from Friday 7th July and are available from the Box office on Hotham Street.
