Mantra Album Cover Gang of Thieves

Hoplite, LLC

Gang of Thieves is stealing back the spirit of American rock n roll!

High energy is the hallmark of these Burlington, VT based road warriors. The highly acclaimed Rock n' Roll group just released a brand new, basement brewed EP called "Mantra", their follow up on the immensely praised "Thunderfunk" album [recorded in Berkeley, CA with Grammy Award winning engineer Michael Rosen (Santana, Rancid, Less than Jake)]. The new EP "Mantra" proudly features Steve Jankowski on Trumpet, who has toured with world famous acts Blood Sweat and Tears, Chicago, and Chic.

These green mountain rockers cook up a stew of influences ranging from Red Hot Chili Peppers and Sublime to Led Zeppelin and Rage Against The Machine, with a live show that has proven to make audiences of every age group shake their rump like it's 1969. The key to this universal appeal is their infectious sense of fun and showmanship, delivered with a hint of spiritual and political awareness, without any preachy self-righteousness.

Keep your ears and eyes on Gang of Thieves as they steal hearts across the nation and continue to skyrocket on the radar as one of America's premier Rock n' Roll experiences.

“If there was a funk delivery service, Gang of Thieves would be at your door hooking you up.”
