The lovely Jami Morgan of Code Orange Kids emailed me this track entitled #FUCKNOSLEEP a little ago. Featuring all members of COK, with the fabulous Joe Goldman on lead vox. It is their #TEAMTOPSHELF submission. Love these kids hahaha.
NOTE: AS A REMINDER, THIS IS ALL FAKE AND IS FOR FUN. THERE IS NO REAL HATE BETWEEN NO SLEEP RECORDS, TOPSHELF RECORDS OR ANY OF OUR FAMILIES. WE ARE ALL FRIENDS, BROTHERS, LOVERS.
I hate this band!
We just wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you to everyone who came out and supported us on the last tour! It was truly one of the coolest things we have been apart of and it means the world to us! Special thanks to Code Orange Kids for being constantly amazing, and many thanks to Every Time I Die, Terror, and Stray From The Path for putting up up with our shenanigans.
If you missed out on merch at all, we have some leftover stuff in our store here: http://www.allinmerch.com/category/FRMTH.html
And we will also be putting more stuff up in our Big Cartel store soon to get rid of it.
What’s next for us?
We have been on the road all around the world now for the past year straight since “The Language That We Speak” came out, we have been able to play with some of our best friends and some bands we highly respect, we have been able to go to places that we didn’t even know existed, all because we are playing music. We have decided it’s time to tuck ourselves away and start working on the next record. We have plans in the works for what we want to do and we are all beyond excited to get started on this process! One of the best parts of playing in a band is starting from scratch and creating a living, breathing piece of art that we will get to present to you.
In the mean time we are playing this years Bled Fest in Howell, MI. Please support our many hard working friends who are currently touring the world over, and please keep in touch!
Hey friends, we have a busy next two weeks!! The Every Time I Die tour is coming to a close and we are gearing up to do some shows with our friends in Code Orange Kids down to SXSW. WE are beyond excited to be returning to the annual shit show that is SXSW, this should be a real good time!

Hey We are playing a headlining show in Danbury, CT on Wednesday 2/15! Everyone should come and hang!
December marked the one year anniversary of us recording “The Language That We Speak”. It’s pretty wild to think that it has been over a year since we were out in Seattle putting the finishing touches on our first full length. We are very proud of this record and so happy that we are able to continue to tour off of it!
To show our appreciation for the great response we have gotten so far, No Sleep Records and ourselves decided to put the record up for free download in it’s entirety. If you don’t have it, get it. If you know someone that may be into it, send it to them. If your mom wants to listen to something “a little more edgy” then Kings of Leon, send it her! You get the picture!
Thank you all for the continued support, it means the absolute world to us!
Here’s how it works, head on over to www.facebook.com/formerthieves and click on the “Free LP Download” tab. Give us a “like” if you haven’t and PRESTO, you got free music!
