Style: Brit Indie Rock’n’Roll. Lyrics that cut deep, have a gritty yet romanticised view of British life and the struggle to make ends meet. Coupled with the band’s superb musicianship and natural ability to create instantly engaging melodies, these factors make House Of Thieves compelling listening. Live is where this band really excels. Performances are always tight, energetic and exciting with great audience connection. The House Of Thieves are a ‘must see’ live band.
About: House Of Thieves are a Nottingham band formed when lead guitarist Tim Ridgway, bassist Tommy Gent and drummer Rhys Dolman from The Roulette, winners of the 2012 Derby ‘Battle Of The Bands’, met singer/songwriterTom Gourlay during the event. The bond was instant. Their first gig was bottom of the bill on “Radar Love” night at The Venue in Derby but it wasn’t long before the band were gaining significant momentum and causing quite a stir everywhere they performed. House Of Thieves went on to support Dive Bella Dive at the Camden Barfly, commenced a tour supporting The Milk and concluded the year supporting The Mystery Jets on their ‘Radlands’ tour.
2013 saw many more gigs for the band, including Nottingham’s Rescue Rooms and Bodega, where House Of Thieves performed to sell-out crowds. The highlight gig was supporting NME favourites Loom And Darlia. Festivals soon followed including Y Not, Brightfest, Underground and Summersound.
During 2014 the band played at seven festivals, including Y Not (headlining the BBC Introducing Stage), Kendall Calling, BrightFest, Brownstock, Victorious, Underground and Summersound. Significant radio airplay of House Of Thieves music during the year culminated in a live interview by Alan Clifford for BBC East Midlands and later a live music set at the BBC for the Gaby Roslin Show.
Releases: March 2015, House Of Thieves released ‘Do When You Don’t’ their debut single. An album is planned for release later in the year.
