EDITORS’ NOTES

Sustained passion and crushing power are the dominant textures emerging from the Essex band’s second album. Credit singer Conor Mason, who lets his multi-octave voice proudly unfurl like a terrace banner. They rock with razor focus and an ear for sublime hooks and audio tricks on tracks like “I’m Not Made By Design” and “Amsterdam.” When they slow it down, like on “Particles,” “Hell, Yeah,” and “Soda,” Nothing But Thieves unlock stadium-anthem levels on par with Radiohead or Keane.

A Broken Masterpiece

RussDrums123

These guys are my favorite new rock band by far. So far the first 2 singles put out are proof to me that NBT has not lost any of there grandeur and seems to have picked up some extra grit since there previous work. I eagerly await the full album

Where did "Afterlife" go?

ConspicuousGoat

I absolutely love this band and this new album is sounding really good already, but why was "Afterlife" taken off the standard album? That just seems kind of weird.

Record of the Year 2017

Great band, great songs and great vocals. These guys have it all, not sure why they aren't breaking faster in the States.

About Nothing But Thieves

Hailing from Southend-on-Sea in Essex, England, Nothing But Thieves make passionate guitar-based rock that balances indie rock artfulness with a pop sensibility. Formed in 2012, Nothing But Thieves feature singer Conor Mason, guitarist Joe Langridge-Brown, guitarist Dominic Craik, bassist Philip Blake, and drummer James Price. The group gained early attention with several EPs, including 2013's If You Don't Believe, It Can't Hurt You and 2014's Graveyard Whistling. In 2015, Nothing But Thieves released their self-titled debut album, featuring the singles "Itch," "Hanging," and "Trip Switch," with the latter reaching number one on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart. Nothing But Thieves would eventually break into the Top 15 of the Billboard Alternative, Heatseekers, and Rock Album charts. After extensive touring, the band returned to the studio, emerging in the spring of 2017 with "Amsterdam," the lead single from their sophomore album, Broken Machine, which arrived in September of that year. The effort peaked at number two on the U.K. charts, while nudging into the Billboard 200. Months later, in 2018, the group released singles for their covers of Gnarls Barkley's "Crazy" and Jeff Buckley's "Lover, You Should Have Come Over." ~ Matt Collar
