KITE THIEF - Release New Single "Shush", Announce UK Shows With EXIT CHILD Ahead Of Debut EP Release

Kite Thief is a high-voltage expanse of catharsis; an ecstatic space of rage, and a playful moment in time to lose yourself, without fear. Emanating from Bristol, the five-piece blend their diverse influences with the spice of disrupting & confronting toxic social norms. Their melting pot of intoxicating melodies, pummelling rhythms, & unrelenting riffs forges a captivating vibration that you can’t help being absorbed by. Influenced by the likes of Spiritbox, Holding Absence and Vukovi, Kite Thief’s music invites the listener to face their darkness, whilst simultaneously empowering through acceptance, understanding, love and having as much fun as possible! Trailblazing through the UK scene, Kite Thief leaves a sweet but gritty taste in every city they call upon. Come in and take a bite, we know you’ll like it.
Fresh from blistering performances at 2000 Trees Festival and Wildfire Festival and sharing stages with the likes of RXPTRS, Of Virtue, and InMe, Kite Thief will release their fourth single ‘Shush’ on the 10th November. The band recently signed to Year Of The Rat Records and previous singles have picked up coverage with Metal Hammer, Distorted Sound Magazine, RTE2XM, Primordial Radio, BBC Bristol, BBC South West, Dreambound, Independent Music Insider, Amazing Radio, Total Rock, Deezer and more. The band are also pleased to announce another UK run with Exit Child in May 2024. This is in addition to the bands UK headline tour in Feb / March 2024 which is already on-sale. EP Pre-orders below.

Elin - “Shush is the ultimate embodiment of wanting what you can’t (or maybe shouldn’t) have. It encompasses all the sweet lies I would tell myself and my partners whilst trying to justify our situationships, the eraticness I felt because I yearned for their touch and their affection and all the promises I would make to try to convince them and myself otherwise. It really outs my self-sabotaging behaviour, and maybe now it is out in the world, I can put all that behind me."
