Summer Thieves are a five-piece band from Dunedin, now based in Auckland, who uniquely fuse together elements of roots, hip-hop, R&B and rock.
Since forming in 2011, The boys cemented themselves as a must-see within the New Zealand festival and gig circuit with repeat performances at Rhythm & Vines, Bay Dreams, Rhythm & Alps and Raglan’s Sound Splash. They’ve opened for hip-hop royalty Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Hermitude, Australia’s Sticky Fingers, Peking Duk, and Ocean Alley as well as local heavyweights Six60, Katchafire and Sons Of Zion.
In 2017 they recorded their debut full-length album with multi-award-winning artist and producer Tiki Taane and are currently preparing for the release of a five-track EP produced by Alex Wildwood (SACHI) and Matt Sadgrove (Sons Of Zion).
Summer Thieves are touring late July, and the EP, Bandaids and Lipstick is out July 31st
