“WoodBangers is doing it again. We are proudly introducing another sweet-sounding, prominent, independent group of talented individuals to the masses. Who are they? Their name is Thieves of SunRise. We don’t know if they really are stealing sunrises, but we do believe that we would approve. Why? Because if they are, we would believe that they are sharing them with the rest of the world in the form of their music. Thank you, Thieves of SunRise.... Thieves of SunRise consists of four far-out, musical dudes that hail from Dallas, TX; Shaun Crawford on guitar, Ryan Ross on drums, Curtis Crofford on bass, and Matthew Marcus McDaniel on the “voice box”. Their music is a refreshing, undiluted brew of rock, soul, and blues that enlightens their listeners from within. Whether it is a morning drive to work, a backyard barbecue, or any other event that just isn’t right without music, Thieves of SunRise convey a warm, illuminating tone that is suitable for any occasion.”

“The music seems to seep from Three Brother Drafthouse! On Friday August 31st, 2012 Thieves of Sunrise set up for a night of musical madness. Hailing from Dallas, Texas this powerful 4 piece ensemble has proven to be one of the most unique “Texas” movement collaborations. Each member has many eclectic influences ranging from the styles of The Black Crowes & Muddy Waters to Cross Canadian Ragweed & Gram Parsons. Their sound sends out a rock feel, infused with soul and the blues. Among the many original tunes played throughout the 3 part set were “Cursed Words”, “American Dream” and a new song called “The End”. Our favorite cover of the night was a 20 min long version of “Hard to Handle” by The Black Crowes. Thieves of Sunrise had a blast on stage giving everyone a dose of good times and the Drafthouse was alive with the spirit of music. ”
“I just can't tell you how impressed I am with this bands' material.. They truly do have a chance at becoming a # 1 touring rock band within' the next year...”
"In a rock scene where so many are trying to imitate that classic southern rock sound, Thieves of SunRise brings us the real thing."
