After being last seen on these shores, pummeling crowds supporting La Dispute in January, the Iowa-based noiseniks return to the UK as main support for Defeater this July. The tour will take in shows across the UK, Germany, Netherlands, Austria, Belgium, Switzerland, Italy and the Czech Republic with the pair being joined by Polar, The Tidal Sleep and Code Orange Kids on select dates.
Since releasing their critically-acclaimed debut album, the devastating The Language That We Speak, through No Sleep Records in April last year, the band solidified their status as one of the USA’s hardest working bands by taking in tours with the likes of Every Time I Die, Terror, The Chariot and Hatebreed throughout 2011. With the announcement of this latest tour, Former Thieves show no signs of slowing down in 2012.
