Gang Of Thieves Releases New EP, "Totem" February 27, 2018 11:38
Gang of Thieves of Burlington, VT has just released their new EP, “Totem”, produced and recorded by Grammy-winning Michael Rosen (Rancid, Santana, Less Than Jake, AFI) in Berkeley, CA. The EP features the Gang of Thieves most recent anthemic rock and roll singles,“Raise Your Head", and "The Way I Feel".
The EP is not only the band’s first release this year, but also their debut recorded performance in their current lineup; comprised of original members Michael Reit (lead vocals / electric violin), Nick Wood (guitar), and Tobin Salas (bass), joined by the most recent addition, Taylor Whipple(drums, formerly of The Lynguistic Civilians). After numerous lineup changes the band has solidified themselves again as a four-piece rock and roll outfit, so naturally, the band wanted to showcase their new sound in these recordings. "The 4 piece arrangement allows us all much more space. We feel like we can read each other's minds, there's so much kinetic energy around it." - NICK WOOD
Like many songs we’ve heard from Gang of Thieves in the past, the tracks on “Totem” convey simple and uplifting messages, this time with more grit and rock than before. Reit’s vocals give a heavy nod to the late Chris Cornell and are matched by powerful riffs and a driving rhythm section.
The band is gearing up for a big run through the southeast, whcih begins next week. See below for a complete list of dates. For new music releases and touring adventures, follow Gang of Thieves on Spotify, iTunes, Facebook and Instagram.
