This is a totally self financed album and has taken a lot of time, effort and money out of our own pocket to get it to this point. Weve put the album up for no charge and to let fans pay what they want or what they can afford. We hope the trust weve put in people to pay what they can afford doesnt mean people will just download it for free. Without getting paid for our work it would make it impossible for any self financed band like ourselves to carry on. Thanks.

The biggest compliment we've had about this album was from a review where the reviewer stated something along the lines of "Carnival Of Thieves sound like no other Rock band around but at the same time they sound like every great Rock band you've ever heard!".

This is probably down to the huge amount of influences that have gone into the writing of this album from the past 50 years of Rock, Punk, Alternative Rock, Electro Rock, Progressive Rock, Goth Rock, Blues Rock, Folk Rock & New Wave/Indie Rock. Then add to this everyones own individual influences when playing the parts and it's given us a fairly unique album which were really pleased with.

To name drop just a few who have influenced this album would be Pink Floyd, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, Cream, Ultravox!, The Ruts, The Stranglers, The Skids, Lords Of The New Church, New Model Army, The Mission, The Chameleons, The Cure (79-83), Gun, The Levellers, The Cult, Alice In Chains, Metallica, QOTSA, The Hellacopters, The Lime Spiders, RATM, Ayreon, Audioslave, Type O Negative, Mark Lannegan, Hanoi Rocks, Sisters Of Mercy, The Doors, Ghost, Halestorm, The Godfathers and many more. The single biggest influence though would undoubtedly be English Punk band The Ruts and their awesome album The Crack.

All in all its made us proud. We hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed writing and recording it. Cheers.

released March 14, 2014

The majority of this album was recorded on home computers then taken to Big Sky Studio in Barnsley and Yellow Arch Studios in Sheffield to record the vocals. It was then originally mixed and mastered at Big Sky by Josh Ingamells but we weren't happy with the final results as most of it was fairly rushed. So keyboardist Andi Stevenson Produced, Remixed and Remastered it and new recordings have been added and some parts stripped away and this is the final result which sounds much more like what we were supposed to sound like.

Track Name: This Is War Too (Radio Edit)
This Is War Too

An eye for an eye, A tooth for a tooth
I'm playing with voodoo, I've put a curse on you
Like a dog of war, i howl at the moon
A soldier of fortune, I'm gunning for you
Trapped in my headlights, lost in the dark
I'm seeking revenge, for this broken heart
You're locked and loaded, i seek you from far
So be my enemy, Cos this is war

So Will You Fight (Let's Do It)
No compromise (Rise to it)
Die with pride (Let's do it)
So do it now, now, do it now do it, do it, do it now hoo-ha

From shore to shore, from coast to coast
You're in my sights, wherever you go
You can run all day, you can run all night
But you can't hide, from this raging fire
You're blind to the light, you're blind to the dark
There's no place on earth, you can hide your black heart
You're under my spell, be you near or far
So be my enemy, Cos this is war

So Will You Fight (Let's Do It)
No compromise (Rise to it)
Die with pride (Let's do it)
So do it now, now, do it now do it, do it, do it now hoo-ha

What You gonna do? (I'll fight, I'll fight with you)
What you gonna say? (I'll fight, I'll fight today)
This time, this time, this time oh oh, this time, this time, this time oh oh
What you gonna do? (I'll fight, I'll fight with you)

So Will You Fight (Let's Do It)
No compromise (Rise to it)
Die with pride (Let's do it)
So do it now, now, do it now do it, do it, do it now
So Will You Fight (Let's Do It)
No compromise (Rise to it)
Die with pride (Let's do it)
So do it now, now, do it now do it, do it, do it now hoo-ha
Track Name: Acid Rain
Acid Rain

Here comes the News
The atmosphere has been abused
(Rain me down) Let it carry on pouring
Storms break the skies
I raise my hands to shield my eyes
(Rain me down) Let it carry on pouring

Rain on me, Rain on down
Acid rain burns the holy ground
Let it rain, let it pour
Oh like a cloudburst, like the thunderbreaks
You're raining down on me . . .
Oh Acid Rain

So cry the trees
Poison clouds upon the breeze
And the rains of fire, still carry on pouring
Rains of disease
Yet still we reap the killing fields
And the Rains of fire, still carry on pouring

Rain on me, Rain on down
Acid rain burns the holy ground
Let it rain, let it pour
Oh like a Monsoon, like a Hurricane
You're raging down on me . . .
Oh Acid Rain

Rain on me, Rain on down
Acid rain burns the holy ground
Let it rain, let it pour
Oh like a landslide, like an avalanche
You're crashing down on me . . .
Oh Acid Rain

Rain on me, Rain on down
Acid rain burns the holy ground
Let it rain, let it pour
Oh like a typhoon from the fires of hell
You're pouring down on me . . .
Oh Acid Rain
Track Name: On The Run
ON THE RUN

In a dirty bed sit
In the dead end part of town
The wolves are at my door
And I'm begging a pound
I steel a gun and shoot a stranger
I'm not the man i used to be

What have i done (What have I done)
What have i done (I'm on the run)
What have i done (I pulled the trigger)
I'm on the run (Just for fun)

In a railway station
Platform 2 is where I'm found
Held up in a luggage van
On a train that's nowhere bound
I'm heading for a cold asylum
The sound of sirens all around

What have i done (What have I done)
What have i done (I'm on the run)
What have i done (I pulled the trigger)
I'm on the run (Just for fun)

Oh momma
It wasn't my gun
The trigger just slipped
All we were doing was having some fun
The law are on my back
I'm a wanted man
Oh Momma, oh Momma
Help me if you can
I'm not going down
I'm not going down
Can't you see, can't you hear, can't you feel
I'm out of control

What have i done (What have I done)
What have i done (I'm on the run)
What have i done (I pulled the trigger)
I'm on the run (Just for fun)
What have i done (What have I done)
What have i done (I'm on the run)
What have i done (I pulled the trigger)
I'm on the run (Just for fun)
Track Name: Runaway Train
Runaway Train

Black heart inside your shell
Everything you touch, turns into hell
But i wonder how I'm ever gonna live, now I'm without you
You ripped the love, right out outta my heart
You took me in and you spat me out
Still i wonder how I'm ever gonna live, now I'm without you

You're out of control (Don't you know that)
There's a 2 minute warning on the radio
Don't you know
You're a Runaway Train on a journey i don't wanna go

With cold eyes you'd stare at me
You've taken everything that you could see
But i wonder how I'm ever gonna live, now I'm without you
Now you're free you're running wild
Like a pyromaniac spitting out fire
Still i wonder how I'm ever gonna live, now I'm without you

You're out of control (Don't you know that)
There's a 2 minute (2 minute warning) warning on the radio (And it said)
Told you so
You're a Runaway Train on a journey i don't wanna go

The train keeps rolling
It just keeps rolling
This train keeps rolling
It just keeps rolling along

You're out of control (Don't you know that)
There's a 2 minute warning on the radio
Return my soul
You're a Runaway Train on a journey i don't wanna go
Track Name: Song For Someone
Song For Someone

I've played the fool
So many times before
I've had it up to my neck
With all this crap I've had to endure
Now I'm not gonna take this lying down
Get outta my face you've lost the crown
You ain't my princess anymore

This ain't a song for someone (No, no, no, no)
This is a song to you
This ain't a song for someone (No, no, no, no)
This is a song for you
Just for you

There's no hard feelings
There's nothing left to say
If you wanna make a mess of these things
Then thats alright by me
I refuse to say it's ok
Gonna change things along the way
Keep Your hassles away from me
Close aint good girl
Put some distance in our way
What am i supposed to say
I'm the loser either way
Heart of stone no where to go
It's all over anyway
Don't beg me darling just walk away

This ain't a song for someone (No, no, no, no)
This is a song to you
This ain't a song for someone (No, no, no, no)
This is a song for you
Just for you

This ain't a song for someone (No, no, no, no)
This is a song to you
This ain't a song for someone (No, no, no, no)
This is a song for you

This ain't a song for someone (No, no, no, no)
This is a song to you
This ain't a song for someone (No, no, no, no)
This is a song for you
Just for you
Track Name: Bohemian Highway
Bohemian Highway

Everybody's hooked on something
Everyone has their habits to feed
You man get a buzz from stealing
But me I'm a nicotine freak
Everyday the world gets madder
Joy riding the teenage craze
Fuck me i don't need that shit man
I'd Like to think I've got more brains

You'd Kill the oceans, kill the skies
Kill the ozone so we'd all die
You'd kill your mum for her gold ring
To get your fix of Heroin
But when you gonna learn that killing just don't pay
Bohemian
Highway
Bohemian Highway

Everybody's high on something
Everybody's building bombs
God damn the worlds a nightmare
Every maniacs wielding a gun
Everyday the world gets faster
Ram raiding a teenage craze
But me i don't follow that stuff man
You must have shit for brains

You'd Kill the oceans, kill the skies
Kill the ozone so we'd all die
You'd kill your mum for her gold ring
To get your fix of Heroin
But when you gonna learn that killing just don't pay
Bohemian
Highway
Bohemian Highway

Our Cities Aren't safe when you're around
Our Streets Aren't safe when you're around
Our homes Aren't safe when you're around
No no, Just go

You'd Kill the oceans, kill the skies
Kill the ozone so we'd all die
You'd kill your mum for her gold ring
To get your fix of Heroin
But when you gonna learn that killing just don't pay
Bohemian
Highway
Bohemian Highway

Whatcha gonna say to the devils son?
Whatcha gonna do when the Hoodoo comes?
Whatcha gonna do when you face his gun?
Whatcha gonna do when the Voodoo comes?
When the Voodoo comes?
When the Voodoo comes?
Track Name: A Man Dressed In Black
A Man Dressed In Black

I see him walking down the street one day
He turns and looks, looks my way
But as i turn to say
He fades away

He's a stranger in this vicinity
He Looks like an agent of mystery
And in the long dark shadows
He walks the city streets

He's a man, Dressed In Black
And Like the speed of light he moves through you
He's a man, Dressed In Black
Through the wind and rain, i'll still keep searching for you

Down Avenues and boulevards
He flits through Cafe's and City bars
I Thought i saw him smoking
By a burned out car

He's like a ghost who floats from place to place
One day i'm gonna meet him face to face
But like drifting gunsmoke
He fades and leaves no trace

He's a man, Dressed In Black
And Like the speed of light he moves through you
He's a man, Dressed In Black
Through the wind and rain, i'll still keep searching for you

No Face, No Trace, A Silhouette through Mist And Haze
This Stranger, He's Dressed in Black
No Name, Always The Same, He Flickers Through Cinematic Frames
This Stranger, He's Dressed in Black

He's a man, Dressed In Black
And Like the speed of light he moves through you
He's a man, Dressed In Black
Through the wind and rain, i'll still keep searching for you
For You, for you, for you, for you

Stranger, Stranger
Stranger, Stranger
Track Name: Last Train To Hell
Last Train To Hell

Well I'll be leaving
You'll be as free as a bird
Don't you cry now sweet child
'cos you can take on this world
Didn't mean to hurt you
Didn't mean to make you so sad
I'm as cold as the winter babe
And girl I'm hurting so bad

Got a gun full of lead
Gonna put it to my head
And then you'll know
I'm on the Last Train to Hell

I'm out on the freeway
Been a driving for miles and miles
The shadows grow long now
From the ever lasting skies
You know someone once told me
You had the loneliest eyes in the world
But i was blind, i was so blind
And now i want to burn

Got a gun full of lead
Gonna put it to my head
And then I'll know
I'm on the Last Train to Hell

Got a gun full of lead
Gonna put it to my head
And blow it off
I'm on the Last Train to Hell

No more pain
Last Train to Hell
No more pain sweet child
Last Train to Hell
Track Name: Midnight Blues
Midnight Blues

11:59
On a blue sunday evening
Another lazy weekend's gone by
Without your loving baby

The night air is cold
You know the north wind she blows how she blows
If there was a light in your window girl
That's where I'd be coming home

But time is on my side

12:15
Can't get you out of my head, out of my head
You know you hurt me sweet child
With all those bad, sad things that you said

Monday morning
I feel a blue day is dawning
Do you remember those sweet September skies?
Oh girl, oh girl

But time she's on my side

Long lonely days of pain
Can't take heartache again
You got me drowning in my whiskey baby
You got me, you got me . . .
The Midnight Blues

Long lonely days of pain
Can't take heartache again
You got me drowning in my whiskey baby
You got me, you got me . . .
The Midnight Blues

Long lonely days of pain
Can't take heartache again
You got me drowning in my whiskey baby
You got me, you got me . . .
The Midnight Blues
Track Name: The Rain Poured Down On Me Too
THE RAIN POURED DOWN ON ME TOO

I met you under Berlin lilac trees
English Spy falls for spandau queen
1944 and this war it never yields
Autumn leaves fall down gold & green

There's danger on the German radio
As the rain it poured down on me
It's crazy our dark hidden secret
But my love for you goes on and on

I kissed you but you seemed so uncertain
We talked by lanterns for hours in the twilight
I held your hand as we closed the curtains
As the bombs rained down all through the night

There's danger on the German radio
As the rain it poured down on me
It's crazy our souls in isolation
But your love for me goes on and on

I saw the rain as it bathed on your pretty face
I caught your eyes as they lit up the sky
Souls scream as the city burns to ash again
Sit in darkness as the sirens wail by

There's danger on the German radio
As the rain it poured down on me
It's crazy and it's so uncertain
But this war it goes on and on
Track Name: Face The World
Face The World

You're there in the sunshine
I'm here in the rain

Don't wait for me
I can never be yours
So run to the sun
While I Face The World

You're there in the twilight
Im here in the haze

Don't wait for me
I can never be yours
So run to the sun
While I Face The World

You're there in the bright lights
Im here in the shade

Don't wait for me
I can never be yours
So run to the sun
While I Face The World

Don't wait for me
I can never be yours
So run to the sun
While I Face The World
Track Name: The Joy Poet
The Joy Poet

Europe is dying 1993
The old man harbours his memories
Violins swimming, swirling through his ears
As the earth is swallowed up by the sea

Vienna is drowning now!
Oh! Vienna is drowning now!

Amber clouds burst and split the blackened skies
The old man wakes and he writes
His ink well has spanned ten thousand summer nights
Now all the river's are running wild

Oh! the earths a raging fireball and the devils gonna stoke it
Burning down, down, down, down
No~one's seen, no~one's told the Joy Poet he's drowning
Going down, down, down, down

Beaches and wastegrounds washed by poisoned seas
The old man lives without machines
He has no wireless, he has no tv
He cannot hear the frightened trees

Oh! the earths a raging fireball and the devils gonna stoke it
Burning down, down, down, down
No~one's seen, no~one's told the Joy Poet he's drowning
Going down, down, down, down
Oh! the earths a raging fireball and the devils gonna stoke it
Burning down, down, down, down
No~one's seen, no~one's told the Joy Poet he's drowning
Going down, down, down, down
Burning down, down, down, down
Going down, down, down, down
Burning down, down, down, down
Track Name: Echoes
ECHOES

Sunlit ripples on the sea
Beyond my reach
I reminisce about your memory
And I can't breathe

You're an Echo, an Echo

Voices blurring, I Run like a Gun
And all the echoes of our summer, Glimmer in the sun
The weightless waves wash over me
They never seem to fade away

Cast a pebble to the sea
Stand by me
We're singing songs that echo me
You're all a dream, all a dream, all a dream, all a dream
all an Echo, Echo

Sunset brings evening, and night stock perfumes
And the coldness of the moonlight, crimson is the moon
The weightless waves wash over me
They never seem to fade away

I sit on a quiet beach
And gaze into the sea
I think you were everything
To me

Naked and bleeding, the ocean glistens gold
Waking in the mist and light, dawn is moments old
And the weightless waves wash over me
They're never gonna fade away

I sit on a quiet beach
And gaze into the sea
And i think of everything
That's happened to me

La la la la la la la la la
Dream Forever, Dream Forever

La la la la la la la la la
Dream Forever, Dream Forever
Track Name: Playground Of Lost Souls
Playground Of The Lost Souls

The winds of change come blowing through my life
The fortune wheel is spinning round the dice
And i travel through the emerald frost
To where the ice watchman sits around the clock

And it's cold (and it's cold)
So very cold (so very cold)
In the Playground (in the Playground)
Of the lost souls
And i'm told (and i'm told)
You never grow old (you never grow old)
In the Playground (in the Playground)
Of the lost souls

Cherry oyster's scattered on the beach
Of the crystal ocean that's so far out of reach
So i board the ship of fools
Where the thieves of romance pillage every room

And it's cold (and it's cold)
So very cold (so very cold)
In the Playground (in the Playground)
Of the lost souls
And i'm told (and i'm told)
You never grow old (you never grow old)
In the Playground (in the Playground)
Of the lost souls

And it's cold (and it's cold)
So very cold (so very cold)
In the Playground (in the Playground)
Of the lost souls
And i'm told (and i'm told)
You never grow old (you never grow old)
In the Playground (in the Playground)
Of the lost souls

What you gonna do when you're lonely?
What you gonna do when it all falls down?
What you gonna do when you're broken?
What you gonna do when the rains come down?
What you gonna say when you can't choose?
What you gonna say when the world goes by?
What you gonna say when it's too late?
What you gonna say when it's time to die?
