SXSW 2014 #MEAL Gang of Thieves Live

Gang of Thieves is stealing back the spirit of American rock n roll, and recently nominated as "Rock Act of the Year" by the 2014 New England Music Awards.

Get ready to dance and prepare for an unforgettable live performance when these talented young upstarts come to town. Proudly representing Burlington, Vermont, the Gang recently had a successful Kickstarter campaign, raising over $10,000 to fund new album "Thunderfunk", recorded in Berkeley, CA with Grammy Award winning engineer Michael Rosen (Santana, Rancid, Less than Jake).

Thunderfunk is set to release on April 20th at Arts Riot in Burlington, VT. Previous recording credits include an album with Steve Jankowski of Blood Sweat & Tears at Jankland Studios in Wall, NJ (Dinosaur Sandwich Party/2011), and a music video single at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, CA (Lost&Found/2012).
