GANGS release video for single ‘Thieves’!‏

Rock & roll four-piece, GANGS have introduced themselves to the music world with the announcement of their official single Thieves, due for release on 22nd July 2016 via Smooth Action Records.

On Thieves, the band exhibit all their best qualities as grimy caustic vocals prowl your ear drums, allied to relentless, raw guitar pieces and a rhythm section that propels GANGS, kicking and screaming, for two and half exhilarating minutes, before settling on a booming outro; a crescendo of distortion and affected vocals screaming “…take a look around thieves are coming TONIGHT!”. The video for Thieves premiered on Clash and is now available to watch on the band’s YouTube channel.

The stream of Thieves was unveiled exclusively on Tenement TV with the site exclaiming that “the scope of GANGS really does seem limitless”. Stream Thieves now from the GANGS Soundcloud page.

Born out of the dregs at the bottom of a double Jack and Coke, the band have had a sharp rise to prominence in their hometown having come together in the shadowy underbelly of Glasgow during its cold winter months.

Combining elements of American garage rock and psychedelic rock made famous by the likes of The Stooges, with the modern punk rock swagger of bands like Slaves and Royal Blood, GANGS have very much laid down their marker as a booming, anthemic rock band with plenty of attitude to burn.

GANGS were formed in 2016 when Steven Young (vocals, guitar), Stevie McLaren (guitar), Marc MacCallum (bass, vocals) and Stephen Forbes (drums) came together through their mutual love of all things rock & roll. Refreshingly, the band are forthright in their belief that they are content writing songs they believe in, rather than being populist, maintaining that they want to run their own race, all the while creating music they enjoy making. If Thieves is anything to go by, GANGS are certainly enjoying the music they make.

Thieves by GANGS is out 22nd July 2016 via Smooth Action Records.
