Colorado Springs-based outlaw alt-folk group Tejon Street Corner Thieves (TSCT) have just released their new album Thick As Thieves across all platforms via Liars Club, the new label formed by Amigo the Devil and indie powerhouse Regime Music Group.
The 12-track album was recorded at Royal Recordings in Colorado Springs with producer Bill Douglas (Veruca Salt, Smashing Pumpkins). Thick As Thieves twists together a unique blend of Americana, folk, and bluegrass, defying categorization into one single genre. There’s a newfound level of depth, complexity, and authenticity that elevates the record to a new sonic spectrum for the band.

TSCT enlisted Olafh Acevedo to illustrate the cover art: a holy angel and a fallen demon enjoying the riches of a heist. To further accentuate the music, fans who purchase physical copies of the record will also receive an original TSCT comic book to accompany the album; a nail-biting tale of how TSCT escaped disaster after their bus broke down in the desert.
TSCT recently released a music video for the whiskey-sippin’, toe-tapping, banjo-picking single "Whiskey". This drinking anthem is a fan-favorite at shows, and complements the band's rowdy and over-the-top hootenanny of a live show, but there’s more to it than meets the eye. Lyrically, the song touches on the struggles of homelessness, and the use of alcohol to cope with a black hole of emotional defeat.

The band also released a music video for Thick As Thieves’ first single, “Love’s Pilot”. The video was directed by Travis Conklin from Colorado-based F4D Studio, and depicts Connor and Shawn's (of TSCT) version of a truck stop heaven, complete with a burlesque show, skateboarders, carnival performers, and more.
