After humble beginnings in 2015 making demos and playing those first crucial shows, the defining journey took off in late 2016 when the self-produced debut album “Gun Shovel Alibi” was released. Extensive touring followed and the band’s DIY-ethics brought them to numerous European countries during 2017. Their lightening, energetic live show caught attention and left the audience wanting more. The hectic tour schedule influenced the three-piece to write, record, and deliver their sophomore epos “Straight Ahead” released in august 2018 quickly followed by three European tours putting Liar Thief Bandit on the map as a hard- working rock’n’roll band to reckon with.
With new songs in the making, May 2019 saw the trio doing their 100th show in Hamburg as the premiere of an 18-day tour through Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Poland, and the Czech Republic. The coming fall saw a split 7” vinyl with Grande Royale released on the Sign Records and a joint tour through Germany and Switzerland supporting the double A-side single. The track “Virtue Not a Vice” left no one doubting the power of innovating riffs and rememberable melodies that makes Liar Thief Bandit stand out in the current rock atmosphere.
