Having enjoyed a nice little run with Dead Letter Circus, Brisbane-based Like Thieves hit the road at the beginning of the month after polishing up their skills a little. And they had a little polishing to do, with the release of their sophomore EP, Autumn’s Twilight, last month. Even cooler, they’re welcoming a local band to open each date, with heavy riffers The Soulenikoes getting the honours in G-Town. From the band: “A lot of acts travel the circuit and tend to leave out the local supports, or only allow one local a small set. We want to give these bands a bit of the limelight and hopefully our fans are turned on by them, and they might even bring some of their fans that don’t know us that well yet.” You gotta love that. The Barwon Club, Geelong – August 22.
