Moral Panic is the third studio album by English alternative rock band Nothing But Thieves.
The band picked right back up where they left off with 2017’s Broken Machine release. Growing their bombastic sounds with synth-laden backdrops and successful vocal exploration but keeping true to the playful but powerful fist-pumping anthems we’ve grown to love
Per the official press release –
Available as an instant grat with all pre-orders of Moral Panic, new track Phobia is a timely introduction to the album. A vigorous examination of the power of social media on our lives, the track opens eerily before building in intensity, backed throughout by lead singer Conor’s urgent vocal delivery.
Nothing But Thieves have so far introduced their new album Moral Panic with new singles Impossible, Real Love Song and Is Everybody Going Crazy? and recent release Unperson, amassing over 30million new streams combined so far. The tracks are the band’s first new music since their 2018 EP What Did You Think When You Made Me This Way, their 2017 acclaimed album Broken Machine, which charted at #2 in the UK album chart, and their debut self-titled album Nothing But Thieves. Their third album Moral Panic will be released next week on 23rd October, with pre-orders now live here and Unperson and Phobia available as instant grat tracks.
The past few years have been quite a ride for Nothing But Thieves. Amassing 780,000 album sales, over 920million audio streams and over 162million video streams so far, they have built up a loyal and wide following for their impactful alt rock sound, cementing themselves as one of the best current rock bands in the world. Selling 150,000 tickets on their last album campaign, which included a sold-out show at London’s Alexandra Palace and selling out their entire worldwide Broken Machine headline tour, their success has been global.
The band have performed on US TV shows, such as James Corden and Jimmy Kimmel, after their debut became the bestselling debut from a UK rock band in the US in 2015 and played packed out international shows from Poland to Amsterdam, where they headlined an arena to 6,000 fans. After intimately debuting new songs earlier this year for a BRITs/War Child gig, they were set to tour internationally this Spring, including a show to 6,500 people at Moscow Adrenaline Stadium. They recently announced 3 livestream shows Live from the Warehouse for the week following the Moral Panic album release and tickets are also on sale for their UK, Ireland and European tour for Autumn 2021.
Filmed Live from The Warehouse, via multiple angles in the round, their livestream shows will be a completely new way to experience Nothing But Thieves, who have a well-earned reputation for their energetic, impassioned and infinite live shows. The band will perform three completely unique sets on 28th and 29th October across three time zones, which will feature brand new tracks from new album Moral Panic, rare songs, old favourites across their previous two albums Nothing But Thieves and Broken Machine, covers and re-imagined tracks. Tickets are available here.
Nothing But Thieves are Conor Mason (vocals, guitars), Joe Langridge-Brown (guitars), Dominic Craik (guitars, keyboard), Philip Blake (bass guitar) and James Price (drums).
