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.
