NBT rescheduled


Nothing But Thieves have announced the Under My Skin UK Tour for March / April 2016. The 9-date run will include some of the band’s biggest headline shows to date with 1st April seeing them play London’s o2 Shepherds Bush Empire. The band are currently in the midst of their first full European and UK headline tour, the UK dates of which sold out well in advance. The tour thus far has been the perfect celebration of Nothing But Thieves’ self-titled debut album entering the UK Official Albums Chart in the Top Ten.

Singles from ‘Nothing But Thieves’ have gained multiple playlist additions across Radio X, Kerrang! and BBC Radio 1 - where the band also bagged Hottest Record In The World and Track Of The Day accolades, as well as playing as part of their Live Lounge Month in September. Nothing But Thieves have had a whirlwind year, touring across the world and playing a multitude of international festivals, including Summersonic in Japan and the main support slot at Muse’s Rock In Rome show to a sold out stadium of over 35,000 fans, as well as delivering jubilant sets at Reading and Leeds Festivals. 2015 has seen Nothing But Thieves begin to carve out their niche in the UK rock scene and 2016 will see them emerge as an important and formidable force.
