This hot rock band harnesses handsome harmonies and nimble, sturdy acoustic folk. Returning to the Camden Opera House by popular demand!
The Ballroom Thieves fought through a year of tribulations with their sophomore album, 2016’s Deadeye, as their shield and sword. Only through continuing to write and perform together was the band, consisting of guitarist Martin Earley, cellist Cailin Peters, and drummer Devin Mauch, able to fend off their darker days. While the skies may not be completely clear, the path ahead is-and the trio make their first steps forward today.
The next phase begins with their new single, “Only Lonely”, a track that harnesses the Thieves’ handsome harmonies and nimble, sturdy acoustic folk. Though disarmingly warm, the lyrics expose the terrible version of oneself that emerges when an unhealthy mental state gains control. “I think anyone who has struggled with depression, anxiety, or profound lonliness can identify with the idea that sadness is at once a passenger and a conductor,” says Earley, “and sometimes it’s difficult to tell the difference.”
Just as the Thieves survive on the strength of their reliance on each other, however, the chorus of howls throughout the song remind the listener that we never battle alone. “Depression can be an isolating maze, but despite the reclusive heaviness of the words in the song we attempt to keep a team mentality when a band mate, partner, or friend is living in the darkness,” says Peters. “The band remains and gains strength after the touring years have taken their toll, sometimes howling as one, other times answering the cry of distress, but always relentlessly singing.”
More details on the EP are forthcoming, but their Nettwek debut single makes one thing clear: The Ballroom Thieves are stronger together than ever, and they’re ready to confront both inner and outer demons with the assurance of a band that’s only begun to rise.
