Album pre order coming soon...
Written by Scott   

These past few months we have been going in and out of the studio, recording our 4th album. It's an album we never thought would come. Not only because we started the band for fun and we never envisioned us making it this far, but also because we decided to end the band after All's Well That Ends Well. There was no big fall out, no musical differences. But the end was very real to us. I was so emotional at our last show. I didn't think I would be able to make music again. I done. Then we got offered a tour of China and it brought us back to life. It's always been the way with the band that whenever we feel like calling it a day, for some reason something pulls us back.

We've worked so hard on this new record and we hope so much that you like it. It was a record made purely because we wanted to make music again. It's very similar to the excitement we felt during the recording of Balloons. We're thrown every single bit of money we can at it, and we’re nearly finished, but we're going to announce an exclusive limited edition pre order very soon to hopefully help get it over the finish line.

We just wanted to say thank you so much to each and every one of you who buys, listens or comes to see us play. We're so glad our band didn't end and we are forever grateful for the support you have shown us.

Much love,
The Candle Thieves
