Press release:

BREAKING NEWS: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the signing of British hard rockers CITY OF THIEVES to the label for the release of the band’s new full length album in 2017!

Since making their live debut at Camden Rocks Festival in May, the buzz has been spreading about City of Thieves – no frills, no messin' around, no gimmicks – it is heavy rock in it's purest form and will send you running straight to the front of the stage with no-nonsense sledgehammer riffs, hooks and melodies.

Working with acclaimed artist and producer Toby Jepson (Little Angels,The Answer, The Virginmarys), City Of Thieves frontman/bassist Jamie Lailey knew at an early stage the band wanted to take rock by the scruff of it's neck and give it a good shake. "We knew what we wanted to do, we'd been devouring the songwriting and if we were inclined, we could have released a ton of material out of the gate. Toby took what we had and refined it. I'm glad we sat back and digested things with him, it was a major
turning point for the band."

With producer Toby Jepson at the helm, Mike Fraser on mixing duties and mastering by Simon Francis (Kodaline, Kaiser Chiefs, Primal Scream) the presentation of this new material was in the best of hands.

When asked what he thought about City Of Thieves, Mike Fraser simply replied "Killer band...Killer songs". This is not a throwaway comment, this is from a true craftsman who has worked on albums for Metallica, AC/DC, Slipknot, Aerosmith, and more.

So what about the songs? "The new material has bags of groove, different speeds and attitude. We mix it up but keep it genuine and made sure everything flows. Why play something that's monotonous, I'm not saying we're reinventing the wheel but if you think your own music is boring, why inflict that on your audience?" says Will Richards (drums). "We can't wait to unleash the other tunes and get on the road to play live," chips in Lailey.

With Planet Rock Radio playlisting 'Incinerator' and a string of festivals and shows under their belts, including Camden Rocks Festival, Planet Rockstock, Hard Rock Hell, Bloodstock Festival, Legends Of Rock and Ramblin' Man Fair, City Of Thieves is geared up to bring the rock in 2017!

These guys aren't just here to steal your soul for the love of rock n' roll...they're here to DEVOUR it. Tune in, turn it up...we'll see you down the front.
