Following the success of their almighty debut, Southend’s Nothing But Thieves return with their second album, “Broken Machine”, due for release on September 8th via RCA. 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 entitled ‘Amsterdam’, which marks their stunning return, is a huge soaring rock anthem. The accompanying video, shot at a vast warehouse in Kiev, Ukraine and directed by Thomas James, perfectly visualises the enormity and grandeur of the track.
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 UK rock band in the US that year.
