Berkshire based quartet Attention Thieves are fast coming one of the most talked about bands in the British underground. Their hard work on the live circuit for the last couple of years has been duly rewarded with opportunities such as BBC Introducing stage appearances at the Reading and Leeds festivals.
There's certainly been bumps and knocks along the way, for example - singer Alex Green played for 6 months with a slipped disc in his back, due to not wanting to cancel shows. Around the same time, the singer also caught whooping cough shortly before he was due in the studio. Not a fan of cancellations, the vocalist was in the studio five days after his operation with the aid of a walking stick.
The band are set to kick off 2013 in their finest form to date, with the release of debut single, 'Can't See The Light', the first offering from a recording session with John Mitchell (You Me At Six, Enter Shikari, Lower Than Atlantis) at the back end of last year. The single is a great introduction for what's to come from the four piece and their passionate blend of melodic rock.
