Following the release of their #3 album Moral Panic last October, Southend four piece Nothing But Thieves have just dropped their brand new EP Moral Panic II. The EP features recent singles Miracle, Baby and Futureproof and marks their first new music since last year’s third full length. Listen to the EP in its entirety below.
Lyrically and thematically, Moral Panic II picks up where the album left off. Next to recent outlets Futureproof and Miracle, Baby, it also features three previously unreleased tracks. Speaking about the new EP the band said:
Moral Panic II was something we decided to do only after Part I was all mixed, mastered and the records pressed. It didn’t feel like we were done with the Moral Panic theme – I think partly because we hadn’t been able to tour the project yet, it didn’t feel right to move on. But we also had the luxury of time to assess the album and explore some avenues we felt the album may have missed.
In that way, it was important that Moral Panic II comprised of completely fresh, newly written songs rather than songs that just didn’t wind up making the album, like how a traditional deluxe version would function. There’s a familiarity, but we also really honed in on a new side of the band. Part II really rounds Part I out – the two parts should be enjoyed as one project.

- If I Were You

The new EP arrives ahead of the band’s massive UK, Ireland and European tour kicking off in September. The tour includes their biggest show to date at the O2 Arena in London.
