Tejon Street Corner Thieves release video for Long Gone feat. members of Bridge City Sinners

Outlaw Alt-Folk Group Tejon Street Corner Thieves Release Video For “Long Gone” Featuring Members of Bridge City Sinners
 
Colorado Springs-based outlaw alt-folk group Tejon Street Corner Thieves (TSCT) recently released their new album Thick As Thieves, and have now teamed up with members of Bridge City Sinners to record a version of “Long Gone” live inside the rugged and scenic beauty of Grand Teton National Park. 
 
“565 miles from our home town of Colorado Springs lays the majestic Grand Tetons. Being a long way from home seemed like a perfect opportunity to film ‘Long Gone’, a song of loneliness, travels, and the love that grows with distance,” commented Connor O’Neal from Tejon Street Corner Thieves. “This song embodies the phrase “distance makes the heart grow fonder” but takes it a step further; to the grave. Long Gone is the first track of Thick As Thieves and it paves the way for the rest of the record.”
Tejon Street Corner Thieves new album Thick As Thieves was recorded at Royal Recordings in Colorado Springs with producer Bill Douglas (Veruca Salt, Smashing Pumpkins) and put out via Liars Club, the new label formed by Amigo the Devil and indie powerhouse Regime Music Group. Thick As Thieves mixes together a unique blend of Americana, folk, and bluegrass, defying categorization into one single genre.  There’s a newfound level of depth, complexity, and authenticity that elevates the record to a new sonic spectrum for the band.
TSCT enlisted Olafh Acevedo to illustrate the cover art: a holy angel and a fallen demon enjoying the riches of a heist.  To further accentuate the music, fans who purchase physical copies of the record will also receive an original TSCT comic book to accompany the album; a nail-biting tale of how TSCT escaped disaster after their bus broke down in the desert.
TSCT also recently released a music video for the whiskey-sippin’, toe-tapping, banjo-picking single “Whiskey”. This drinking anthem is a fan-favorite at shows and complements the band’s rowdy and over-the-top hootenanny of a live show, but there’s more to it than meets the eye. Lyrically, the song touches on the struggles of homelessness, and the use of alcohol to cope with a black hole of emotional defeat.
