About Nothing But Thieves
Shortly after forming in 2012, English rockers Nothing But Thieves landed a BBC Radio 1 hit with “Itch” and soon found themselves sharing stages with such seasoned acts as Arcade Fire and Muse.
∙ Nothing But Thieves’ 2015 self-titled LP, produced by Julian Emery (Lissie, Plain White T’s), became the year’s highest-selling debut from a UK rock band.
∙ “Trip Switch” was the group’s first No. 1 hit in the US, topping Billboard’s Alternative Songs chart in 2016.
∙ Their politically forward sophomore LP, 2017’s Broken Machine, expanded their international reach and was a Top 10 album in the Netherlands, New Zealand, and Scotland.
∙ In 2020, the band was joined by symphonic strings and brass players at the legendary Abbey Road Studios to craft the stand-alone single “Impossible (Orchestral Version Live from Abbey Road).”
∙ After a few delayed release dates due to the COVID-19 pandemic, they issued their third studio LP, Moral Panic, in the fall of 2020.
