Former Thieves Announce Details of Upcoming Performance at The Fest 10 in Gainesville This Weekend

Announce Details of Appearance at The Fest 10 This Saturday in Gainesville, FL

In support of their debut album, "The Language That We Speak" released this Spring on No Sleep Records, Iowa's Former Thieves have announced the details of their upcoming appearance at The Fest 10 taking place in Gainesville, FL this weekend.

Before their upcoming US tour w/ The Chariot, Vanna, The Crimson Armada and Listener, the band will be performing this Saturday October 29th at The Laboratory in Gainesville (6:20pm) alongside the likes of Liquid Limbs, Soul Control, Young Turks, The Fucking Wrath and more.

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.
