When we heard that Nothing But Thieves was going to perform in Paris we couldn’t resist… we had to go to see them.
The band was formed in 2012 in Southend-on-Sea, Essex and his members are Conor Mason (lead vocalist and guitarist,) Joe Langridge-Brown (guitarist), Dominic Alexander Roberto Craik (guitarist and keyboardist), Philip Blake (bassist), and James Price (drummer).
The group garnered early attention with several EPs, like, “If You Don’t Believe”, “Graveyard Whistling,” and “It Can’t Hurt You.”
In 2015, the band released their debut album, with singles like “Itch,” “Hanging,” and “Trip Switch.” The latter reached the top position on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart.
After major touring, the band was back to the studio, and emerged in the spring of 2017 with “Amsterdam,” the lead single from, “Broken Machine,” which was released in September this year.
What we have seen, was a performance that we will not forget easily…. the venue was packed (sold out since several months) and the show was true energy.
The Parisian audience sang all their songs by heart making this last show of the European tour something very special.
Also the two opening acts, the “Xcerts” and “Airways” delivered remarkable performances setting the stage on fire.
We look forward see the band soon, maybe during their American tour this upcoming February!
