Future Thieves New Tour + Album
Alt-rock trio Future Thieves release their new song "My Body" today, which premiered on MXDWN. The song locks into a funky and soulful strut while anchored by a percussive groove and rich guitars. The momentum swells from intimate verses into a catchy chant with danceable swagger and endless energy punctuated by a hummable six-string solo.
"My Body" was the first thing we wrote when we started working on the new record. It came to us easily and wrote itself. It started with a part on this old electric church organ we acquired from a sweet lady for free. After that, everything took off and we had a pretty good demo. We sat on it for a couple of months before recording it all ourselves at my home studio. The sounds encompass the feel of the rest of the project very well. It's a song about someone who isn't comfortable in their own skin and is crying out in hopes that they aren't alone in this. - Elliot Collett (lead singer)
"My Body" is from the band's new EP, Emotional Cost, out October 25, 2019. The upcoming project showcases the group's sonic growth and their shared strength as musicians. Working with longtime producer Alex Jarvis and inspired by the likes of Portugal. The Man, Local Natives, and Spoon, Future Thieves has uncovered an elusive balance between eras on Emotional Cost.
The trio is also kicking off their Fall tour this week with Hardcastle on support. Starting in Columbus, the band will wrap up their solo shows in Lexington before playing support dates with The Weeks.
Future Thieves - Elliot Collett, Austin McCool, and Nick Goss - have created a signature style carved out of rock 'n' roll tradition yet anchored in modern 21st century production architecture. Their song "Horizon Line" has over 1 million streams on Spotify, and the band has garnered attention from the likes of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Team COCO, Billboard, Alternative Press, and more. They have also graced the stages of top festivals such as
Bonnaroo, Summerfest, SXSW and Forecastle.
In the end, Future Thieves craft music that defies genre boundaries and eras and echoes with timeless spirit all the same.
