A fast and fiery punk rock juggernaut, King Thief was born as a musical call to arms for Edmonton’s underground scene in 2019. The band developed their honest and melodic approach to dirty rock and roll riffery throughout the pandemic shutdown, blending notes of post hardcore and modern punk with underscores of 70s arena rock. Quickly recognized for their energy and technical facility, King Thief’s live performance is described as explosive and engaging – tight and raw, pure focussed energy. The gravelly delivery of Eric Nielson’s lyrics, often rooted in social justice, sit atop the punishing rhythm section that is Darren Chewka’s melodic drumming and Nick Kouremenos’ bass mastery. Shawn Moncrieff and Ryan Podlubny, both known for innovative and nuanced guitar playing, haunt listeners with adventurously rhythmic chording and inter-weaving lead-line crescendos. If nothing else, King Thief come by their innovative approach to creating art genuinely.

The band has recently completed their debut, full length album, which is slated for release in the Fall of 2024.
