Returning after three years away, Colorado punks Record Thieves released a long awaited new debut album ‘Wasting Time’ in 2020. A bright spark during a terrible year, the record quickly gained positive reviews from the punk press, with the Brooklyn Vegan website drawing favourable comparisons with legends like Face To Face and Millencolin.
In February 2021, the album was made available for the first time and a second round of promotional activity saw a new video released for the digital single ‘Work It Out’. If there were any songs that best summed up the band’s blend of chorus driven punky melody underpinned by a great crunch, this is surely it. In a little over three minutes, it’s almost guaranteed to win over any lovers of a classic 90s punk sound, with elements of Face To Face and Millencolin joined by a few traits reminiscent of peak Face To Face. With Record Thieves featuring a member of Authority Zero, this surely shouldn’t come as a surprise, but ‘Work It Out’ exceeds all expectations.
