Twelve months since their sold-out Australian run, UK band Nothing But Thieves will return down under in 2024 for another national tour.The 'Welcome To The DCC' (which landed #95 in the Hottest 100) and 'Overcome' rockers will headline concerts in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Adelaide late April, early May.
This time, they'll be armed with their 2023 album 'Dead Club City' (released last June), a record exploring disco hues and experimental funk with soaring synths, scorching riffs and mesmerising melodics.
The tour news is packaged with a new Nothing But Thieves' single as well as the release next month of a deluxe version of 'Dead Club City'. Recorded at the end of the original 'Dead Club City' writing sessions, 'Oh No :: He Said What?' is a band favourite.
"Like 'Welcome To The DCC', the song is mostly from the point of view of those running 'Dead Club City' – except now, they're panicked by the monster they've helped to create," the band says.
"The grifters have moved in. A utopia that was meant to be beyond borders or traditional government control has been dragged back down by the human condition, maybe it was inevitable.
"The song was the very last thing we finished off in the studio and at one point wasn't really part of the concept. The story was meant to end with 'Pop The Balloon', but these extra songs leave the door open a bit.
"We like that. Maybe we'll want to check in on 'Dead Club City' in a decade's time and see how it's doing?"
Tickets are on sale.
