Company Of Thieves Announce New Album, On Tour With The Whigs
Chicago-based band Company Of Thieves have announced that their new album, Running From A Gamble, will drop on May 17th. To celebrate the new disc, the band has also released a free MP3 of the album track "Modern Waste."
A follow up to 2009's Ordinary Riches, Running From A Gamble was spearheaded by singer Genevieve Schatz and guitarist Marc Walloh, who wrote much of the new material. “The album is a coming of age adventure about the mysterious, passionate and painful transition from dependence and enchantment to autonomy and awareness,”Genevieve says. The album's first single, "Death of Communication," will be released to radio later this month.
Company of Thieves are currently on tour with The Whigs, and are set to play a gig with Hall and Oats at Highland Park for Illinois' Ravinia Festival on June 26th. Listen to and download "Modern Waste" and look at the list of tour dates below.
