Thieves To Release “Achiever” on July 31; Releases Album Concept Video

July 3rd, 2012 by Megan Washington

Thieves will release its new album, Achiever, on July 31 independently. It’s the Austin, TX-based pop-punkers third release, and first since the 2011 full-length Just Give It Up.

The band has released a short, three-minute video explaining the album’s concept to go along with the announcement, which can be viewed on Vimeo. The video can be embedded on your website along with the album art for Achiever, which you can find below or here in high-quality.

Thieves’ album concept video features clips from live shows, along with a clip of a new song from Achiever at the end. The band’s upbeat, positive-natured pop-punk is supported by a technicality in musicianship that far exceeds the standards of the genre, and Achiever’s concept is one that is sure to hit home with college-aged listeners, and those slightly older and younger as well. The album and Thieves’ contagious energy combine for a special listening experience.

A new song from Achiever will be released next week. Thieves has also announced new tour dates for the Achiever Tour, featuring Sucker Punch and Far From Proper on a Midwest and Northeast run at the end of July and throughout August.
