ANNOUNCE ‘MORAL PANIC: THE COMPLETE EDITION’ VINYL RELEASED ON 22ND APRIL 23-DATE EUROPEAN TOUR IN MARCH & APRIL INCLUDING 17,000 CAPACITY AMSTERDAM
“Political turmoil, climate change, and the toxicity of the internet all pour into Nothing But Thieves record Moral Panic.” TLOBF
“The band achieve another phenomenal album” Clash
“This is the sound of a band who understand their audience but also delight in taking risks” Gigwise
“A living, breathing, and characteristically anthemic, beast of an album”
Following the release of Moral Panic and Moral Panic II over the last two years, Southend five-piece Nothing But Thieves have announced they will release the two projects together as a physical release on vinyl with Moral Panic: The Complete Edition on 22nd April via RCA Records/Sony Music.
Moral Panic II followed the band’s acclaimed third album Moral Panic, which charted at #3, with both releases sharing a connection thematically and lyrically. Two reflective bodies of work tinged with emotion, anger and hope, the records openly and passionately discussed many issues we face in modern society today. Written separately, but with the band always feeling that they should be enjoyed as one project, both records are already available to stream as one release with a completely new tracklisting, but they will both be released together physically as a 16-track vinyl this April as Moral Panic: The Complete Edition.
The EP featured 5 new tracks, including the singles Futureproof and Miracle, Baby, which followed the original Moral Panic singles Is Everybody Going Crazy?, Real Love Song, Phobia and Impossible. Moral Panic achieved over 102 million streams and saw support from the likes of BBC Radio 1, Virgin Radio and Radio X alongside winning Best Indie Act at Global Radio’s 2021 Awards. Moral Panic followed their 2018 EP What Did You Think When You Made Me This Way, their 2017 acclaimed album Broken Machine, which charted at #2 in the UK album chart, and their debut self-titled album Nothing But Thieves.
The full tracklisting for Moral Panic: The Complete Edition vinyl is as follows:
- Is Everybody Going Crazy?
- Free If We Want It
- Miracle, Baby
- If I Were You
- There Was Sun
- Can You Afford To Be An Individual
- Before We Drift Away
- Ce n’est Rien
- Moral Panic
- Real Love Song
- This Feels Like the End
- Your Blood
