Former Thieves Announce October US Tour Dates * November - December US Dates w/ Very Special Guest To Be Named Shortly

Announce October US Tour Dates and Special Appearances w/ Hatebreed, Comeback Kid, We Are The Union and More
November - December US Tour w/ Very Special Guest To Be Named Shortly
Debut Album "The Language That We Speak" Out Now on No Sleep Records!

In support of their debut album, "The Language That We Speak" released this Spring on No Sleep Records, Iowa's Former Thieves have announced a string of US tour dates taking place this October, including select special appearances with Hatebreed, Comeback Kid, We Are The Union and more, followed by a massive two-month tour with a very special guest to be named soon, as well as Vanna, The Crimson Armada, and Listener, taking place this November and December throughout the majority of the continental US.

Coming from the barren and simple fields of Iowa, Former Thieves have created a pummeling new record that personifies the feelings and emotions of coming from nothing and fighting the entire way to what they have created. "The Language That We Speak" takes the listener through a thorough commentary on the frustration of Midwestern life. Articulate, sharp, and sincerely pissed.

Recorded December 1st through 10th 2010 at The Red Room in Seattle, WA with Chris Common (Mastodon, The Sword) at the helm, No Sleep Records released "The Language That We Speak" on April 19th 2011. The record is available on CD, vinyl, and digital formats and recalls the sounds made famous by the likes of Converge, Botch, Coalesce, and Modern Life Is War while maintaining its own unique formula.
