The British alt rock band Nothing But Thieves has announced a tour in support of their highly anticipated sophomore album Broken Machine, which is due out Sept. 8.
Nothing But Thieves launches their tour on Oct. 11 at the Constellation Room in Santa Ana, CA and remains on the road through Nov. 2 when they wrap the trek with a show at Coda in Philadelphia, PA. Tickets for the tour go on sale next week; click here to get tickets to select dates on AXS.com.
The band also share the new video for “Sorry,” the second single from Broken Machine following the release of “Amsterdam” in May. The new video finds NBT frontman Conor Mason wandering the streets as society descends into apocalyptic reckoning. Like the video for “Amsterdam,” the clip fits with the more political themes of Broken Machine.
“We didn't set out to write a concept album, but it's as close to a concept album as we could go without making one,” the band’s guitarist Joe Langridge-Brown said of the new record in a press release. “It's about systems we perceive to be automatic but when you actually look at them, they really aren't, whether that's mental health, religion, the political system – just challenging those systems. When you're writing an album it's a snapshot of the times. If you're writing an album in 2016, 2017, you're going to write about Trump and Brexit and mental health. I think you'd be doing yourself and everyone else a disservice if politics wasn't referenced in some way.”
