Following the release of their #3 album Moral Panic and the Moral Panic II EP, Southend four piece Nothing But Thieves have just dropped their brand new single Welcome to the DCC. Coinciding with the new song, that was premiered as Clara Amfo’s Hottest Record in the World on Radio 1, the four piece announce their new album Dead Club City will be released on July 7th.
Welcome to the DCC takes Nothing But Thieves to the dancefloor. The new track is easily their most pop and 80s influenced release to date and yet unmistakably their own. DCC is the eponymous Dead Club City, the album’s namesake. The album’s tracklist (which is yet to be revealed) consists of different characters and stories from Dead Club City, making it their most conceptual album to date and a new era for the band who add:
Welcome to the DCC, Dead Club City. All the heaven, all the time.
The meaning behind these tracks are common real life topics such as advertisement, unity, internet culture, the music industry, ageing and politics, as well as the alienation or privilege of a members only club.
Nothing But Thieves will play several festivals across Europe this summer as well as Reading / Leeds. Tickets are available here*.
