Trigger To Be Released on March 11th, The Statue Thieves First Single From Formation E.P.

March 11th will see The Statue Thieves release their first single, Trigger.

Trigger Ivan

The Statue Thieves can now announce that the first single from the forthcoming Formation E.P. will be the opener Trigger.

Recorded at Shock and Awe Studio in High Barnet, North London, and produced by James Johnston, Trigger is a commentary on the mixed violence ordered from the populus by Britain’s political elite.

Describing the single to be released this month, The Statue Thieves explained:

Juxtaposition occurs a lot in The Statue Thieves and our music. Our name itself follows this:

Statues are used to represent the status que, the Establishment, the victors and matyrs of the prevailing socio-economic system.

Thieves are the disorder, the criminals, those whose defining actions are prohibitted, and who are not celebrated.

Trigger is also inclusive of this, most notably in the line “Hold your fire and pull the trigger”:

‘Hold your fire’ symbolises the demand to not riot, to remain calm, to not kill your fellow man, and to follow the broad guidelines of civilisation.

‘Pull the trigger’ throws you into Iraq, Afghanistan, Northern Ireland, the former British Empire (to which so many statues are dedicated). It is the demand on the British troops to abandon their hitherto orders to remain calm, and to now kill, maime, pillage, to cease to act as man, but, instead, as killers, running insane amongst burning civilsations.

Whilst our music is more socially and historically reflective, and not preachy nor claiming to know all, this is a heart felt song about an overlooked insanity.

On a lighter note, the band describe what the listener has awaiting them:

Ivan Muela throwing your brain around the room with his effects, a tribal afrobeat rhythm section in the verse, a Fugazi/Joy Division chorus where the vocals sound as though played throw a washing machine. A great song actually.

March 5th: Last Minute Intimate Show Confirmed at Dublin Castle, Camden Town

The Statue Thieves have been called in at the last minute to perform at Dublin Castle on March 5th at 9:45.

In an intimate show, and the first performance of 2014 and with new drummer George Simion, The Statue Thieves will be returning to Camden Town’s Dublin Castle in the first show of the forthcoming Formation E.P. Tour on Wednesday.

With a new catalogue of rockier songs to dish out, the band have commented on the night as follows:

We’ve recorded alot of material since November, including Formation E.P. which is set to be over the following weeks. We’ve also been updating our YouTube channel with acoustic sessions. As useful as the introverted and creative period has been, it does feel great to be looking head on at our first show of 2014 and with George Simion on drums, and to be out in the open again let loose with a brand new arsenal of material that is much more driven and rockier than before, something which George has been central to.

We will be grateful to each individual that attends on Wednesday evening.

The Facebook link to the event can be found here.

New Drummer Announced

The Statue Thieves have announced that George Simion is their new drummer, joining the band in early 2014. The first photo of Simion (far right) with the rest of the band can bee seen below:

The band have also discussed their appreciation for former drummer, Ryhan Lovell, saying:

We’d like to thank Ryhan [Lovell] for his input into the band, and the extent to which he shaped our ever evolving sound. His spell in the group changed an acoustic two piece into the rock outfit that we have become. When we later became a four piece, he was pivotal in that transition we undertook.

Ryhan Lovell plays all the drums on the forthcoming Formation E.P.

We are extremely excited nonetheless for our new era with George Simion.
