LISTEN/EMBED: MORAL PANIC II

Southend five-piece Nothing But Thieves have shared their new 5-track EP Moral Panic II via Sony Music UK/RCA Records, which is the follow-up to their #3 acclaimed third album Moral Panic released last year, and features recent singles Miracle, Baby and Futureproof. They have also announced that they will be performing songs from Moral Panic II and Moral Panic at three intimate UK warm-up shows next month.

Moral Panic II follows the band’s acclaimed third album Moral Panic and was written following the completion of the latter, despite a connection between the two both thematically and lyrically. The EP features 5 brand new tracks, including recent singles Futureproof and Miracle, Baby, and is a reflective body of work tinged with emotion, anger and hope, which openly and passionately discusses many issues we face in modern society today. The track listing is as follows:

Moral Panic II

  1. Futureproof
  2. If I Were You
  3. Miracle, Baby
  4. Ce n’est Rien
  5. Your Blood

The band say;

“Moral Panic II was something we decided to do only after Part I was all mixed, mastered and the records pressed.  It didn’t feel like we were done with the Moral Panic theme – I think partly because we hadn’t been able to tour the project yet, it didn’t feel right to move on. But we also had the luxury of time to assess the album and explore some avenues we felt the album may have missed.”

“In that way, it was important that Moral Panic II comprised of completely fresh, newly written songs rather than songs that just didn’t wind up making the album, like how a traditional deluxe version would function. There’s a familiarity, but we also really honed in on a new side of the band. Part II really rounds Part I out – the two parts should be enjoyed as one project.”

Released last year, their third album Moral Panic achieved over 102 million streams and saw support from the likes of BBC Radio 1, Virgin Radio and Radio X alongside winning Best Indie Act at Global Radio’s 2021 Awards. Moral Panic followed their 2018 EP What Did You Think When You Made Me This Way, their 2017 acclaimed album Broken Machine, which charted at #2 in the UK album chart, and their debut self-titled album Nothing But Thieves.

The past few years have been quite a ride for Nothing But Thieves. Amassing over 1 million worldwide album sales and over 907 million worldwide streams, they have built up a loyal and wide following for their impactful alt rock sound, cementing themselves as one of the best current rock bands in the world. Selling 150,000 tickets on their last album campaign, which included a sold-out show at London’s Alexandra Palace and selling out their entire worldwide Broken Machine headline tour, their success has been global.

The band have performed on US TV shows, such as James Corden and Jimmy Kimmel, after their debut became the bestselling debut from a UK rock band in the US in 2015 and played packed out international shows from Poland to Amsterdam, where they headlined an arena to 6,000 fans. After intimately debuting new songs early last year for a BRITs/War Child gig, they were set to tour internationally last Spring, including a show to 6,500 people at Moscow Adrenaline Stadium.

Following 3 livestream performances Live from the Warehouse last year to launch Moral Panic, they are finally bringing songs from the album to live audiences this Autumn with a UK, Ireland and European tour, including their biggest ever headline London show at O2 Arena. The have also just announced they will be performing a series of intimate live shows ahead of their tour with 3 warm-up shows in Oxford, Norwich and Liverpool next month.
