Formed in late 2013, Future Thieves is made up of Elliot Collett (vocals and rhythm guitar), Gianni Gibson (drums), Nick Goss (bass) and Austin McCool (lead guitar). The band was launched into touring upon the completion of writing and recording their debut album, Horizon Line.
Midway through recording their exhilarating new self-titled album, the Nashville indie rockers left the studio and hit the road touring across the United States and Europe. Their lengthy tours on the road brought fresh perspective, with each performance revealing new depths and dimension to the music. The material had the unique opportunity to flourish on stage every night, undergoing radical evolutions in instrumentation and arrangement as the tour progressed. By the time Future Thieves returned to the studio, the songs were battle-tested and sturdier than ever. The resulting album, expected to drop September 2018, is a remarkable showcase of growth and maturity from a band poised for a major breakout.
The lengthy process behind Future Thieves' new release is a far cry from their most recent record, Live at Blue Rock, a live-in-the-studio album captured entirely in an hour. Comprised largely of material from the band's critically acclaimed 2015 debut album, Horizon Line, Live at Blue Rock garnered praise everywhere. They followed it up in 2017 with "Sucker," an infectious single that earned love from Jimmy Fallon, who premiered the official video on The Tonight Show's Tumblr. The group's searing live shows launched festival appearances from Bonnaroo to Summerfest and prompted Live Nation to name them among their acclaimed Ones To Watch.
