Nothing But Thieves share 'Excuse Me' video prior to sell-out tour
Words: Ellie Ward
There's a comment on the new video to 'Excuse Me' by Nothing But Thieves from somone declaring vocalist Conor Mason to be the "best singer alive". Something of a big statement, and one probably Mr Mason himself might be a little too modest to concur with, but it gives an idea of how this five-piece band are not just Southend's biggest export to date, but also one who are set to be festival headliners before long, there can be little doubt.
Their big anthem sound and lush rhythms have already won over American audiences on their recent tour Stateside, and their debut album released last year hit the UK Top 10. Currently on a European arena tour supporting Muse (and let's face it, supports don't come much bigger than this), the band will set out on their biggest ever UK headline tour next month, including a date at London's O2 Shepherds Bush Empire.
Check out the 'Excuse Me' video here, followed by UK dates.
