Interviews: Night Thieves

On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Rock band, 
Night Thieves from the UK. Check out the interview and follow the band on their FACEBOOK PAGE.

1.Where did you get the idea for the band name, you planned it or came out just like that?

Night Thieves is inspired by the orange glow over London at night and the lights that take away the light.

2.Why did you want to play this genre?

Rock and metal are the most exciting genres on the planet and in one way or another, we have all been drawn together through it. The heavy riffs with big melodic choruses create such an adrenaline rush. There's something special about the rock community and that connection too, especially when you play live.

3. Did you know each other before the band was formed?

Jess (vocals) and Rick (bass) knew each other from playing together in the London scene and Paul joined with the shared vision of creating heavy but melodic music.

4. Each band member favourite band?

Our favourite bands in the moment change so often depending on what is out there, but the bands that are consistently favourites are:

Paul: Bring Me the Horizon -Their last record was awesome and I love that they do whatever they want!

Jess: Agree with Paul, BMTH, especially the last few years, they've released some great tracks. Nova Twins are pretty fresh, I have been really liking their stuff. 

Rick: Incubus – they have such an epic back catalogue, so I always come back to them

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

We take inspiration from what is happening in our lives and stories. When it comes to writing the music, we bounce ideas off each other. Lyrically, the latest release focuses on internal struggles and our perspectives in dealing with them. With the pandemic we often felt like we were stuck in a cycle, spinning out of control, hence the title of our latest EP ‘Spiral’.

6. Where was your last gig?

It’s been so long that we went to a gig, because of Covid, that it took a while to remember what our last gig was! Our last gig was at a really cool little venue in London called The Birds Nest. It was the week before the UK went into lockdown. 

7. Where would you like to play?

To get the opportunity to play iconic venues in London would be a dream come true, Wembley would be the dream, but we have seen so many amazing bands at Brixton Academy we think it would be there. Also, in terms of festivals Download would be at the top of the list. One dream venue in the US would be Red Rock in Colorado. Ever since seeing the Incubus DVD, Alive at Red Rocks, this venue has always seemed really special and unique and would be amazing to play.

8. Who would you like to support?

There are so many bands we would love to support. Bring me the Horizon are probably at the top of our list though. Foo Fighters would be iconic too.

9. Who not?

I don’t think we would ever turn down a support slot, but guess we wouldn’t go down well supporting Coldplay.

10. Any of you has ever suffered from stage fright? Any tip for beginners on how to beat that?

We all get a bit of stage fright before any gig, you want to give the best performance possible each and every night and that shows you really care about putting on a show. Being well-rehearsed and preparing what to do when you enter the stage can ease you into it beforehand. Before entering, it can help to take a breather and then let your 'self' go, no pressure to be perfect, just make the most out of it and enjoy! Don't worry if you make a mistake, just keep going instead of reacting to it. It happens to the biggest artists and bands. Most of the time the audience doesn't notice. Once the set kicks in you can start to enjoy yourself and just be in the moment.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

How many are we allowed to list?! We're all inspired by a huge range of bands, so we try and find inspiration from anywhere, regardless of genre. We love bands that write huge hooks, such as Biffy Clyro, Royal Blood and Incubus, but we also love bands that incorporate melody into heavier riffs such as Bring me the Horizon, Spiritbox and Architects. We also have a great scene in London with bands like Hawxx, Marisa and the Moths and Black Orchid Empire.

12. What's the weirdest thing a fan has ever asked you for?

There's not been anything weird yet, looking forward to that moment...

13. What do you think of your fans?

We appreciate everyone's support, it's always so rewarding when someone says they have discovered your music and love what they hear.

14. What do you think of our site?

The site is fantastic, it is so great to see the work you guys put in to promoting new bands in metal. We love the behind the artworks section and the stories of how they've been designed to reflect the artists' music. We love discovering new music and your site is a great place to start. We never knew about Tolkien Metal before now, but it’s going on the playlist!

15. Something to add?

Our new single ‘Off the Wire’ will be released on Friday 2ndJuly and our EP ‘Spiral’ will be out on 17thSeptember. It will be out on all streaming platforms! Lastly, we wanted to say thanks again for featuring us on your site, we really appreciate the support!
