“…they’ve been gaining frequent comparisons to ’90s/early ’00s-era punk bands like Face to Face and Millencolin and we agree fans of those bands are gonna wanna feast their ears on this.”- Brooklynvegan

To coincide with the digital release of the record, the band, and Thousand Islands Records have announced that ‘Wasting Time’ will be released on vinyl on Feb 5th.

By most accounts, this has been a pretty lousy year. Civil unrest, political uncertainty and a pandemic make for some depressing times. However, there have been a few random highlights sprinkled into the shit stew that is 2020. One of them is certainly the reemergence of Denver, Colorado punks Record Thieves (feat. members of Authority Zero, Allout Helter and Boldtype), who have been disturbingly quiet since 2017.

Luckily, their lack of public appearances doesn’t mean they weren’t busy! While they were off our radar for a few years, they were working hard on their debut, eleven-track LP titled ‘Wasting Time’ which is out today via their new label home Thousand Islands Records.


The band says, “These are crazy times! Trying to navigate through all the sh*t the universe keeps dumping on us. Here’s a new track to help get you through!”

Although it’s their debut album, it’s far more polished than expected, because all of the members have been in the scene for a while in other well-established acts. This depth of experience is extremely noticeable on the album. They are fundamentally sound and project a sense of capability. The vocals are sharp and well constructed, backed by exceptionally skillful guitar riffs, with everything being constantly driven by complex, precise drums.

If your 2020 has been an utter disaster, like it has been for most of us, hang in there! The boys in Record Thieves are about to swoop in and save the day with some tasty new tunes to lift you out of the doldrums!
