The Vices

The Vices bring a contrasting mix of britpop and surf rock. Imagine Cage The Elephant and The Strokes having a love-child who happens to possess a live-energy that reminds one of the early Chili Peppers. Those are some big names, but above all The Vices always stay true to themselves. With child-like fun and relentless ambition they can easily play tight and explosive or playful and danceable. This all resulted in their first club tour in early 2022 immediately selling out and Nothing But Thieves taking The Vices along as their support act to the big stages of Europe.

The Vices are four young men with a special friendship. They're all wildly different from one another, but that’s exactly their strength. Different backgrounds can clash and collide, but in The Vices' case they provide a source of inspiration and motivation. Being in a band together is an adventure, especially in The Vices' case where exciting live performances and big opportunities follow each other in rapid succession. And all of this is self-enforced with the energy to work hard and the will to challenge oneself and all centered on a deep friendship where everything that happens is processed through making music
