Hey everyone, as most of you know, I am a big supporter of the American Cancer Society. When it came to my attention that my best friend Jon Lyons was raising money for the American Cancer Society by running in the New York City marathon in honor of his dad (a cancer survivor), I thought when better a time than this to put the full weight of all of my amazing friends and fans behind such an awesome cause. Jon has been training relentlessly for this and I am super proud of him. For those of you who don’t know Jon, he is the drummer of the always amazing Zolof the Rock...

Today we are very excited to premiere Thief Club's "Follow You." The solo project of Nick of Hit The Lights, he channeled the style that brought Hit The Lights to prominence - aggressive pop-punk songs with honest lyrics and humongous hooks. This body of work proves why Hit The Lights wrote some of the most influential (and in my opinion underrated) releases in the genre. "Follow You" features site favorite Shane Henderson of Valencia lending his voice on the track. Listen to it in the replies.
I was chatting with Nick of Hit The Lights about his new project Thief Club. He will be releasing a full length called My Heavy later this year. It was produced by Rob Freeman and features appearances from Will Pugh (Cartel), Shane Henderson (Valencia), and Colin Ross (original singer of Hit The Lights). Freeman produced Skip School, Start Fights, and from what I've heard so far, it seems like it will carry that vibe for this release.
I’ve been writing and recording music in one form or another since I was 12 years old. It had always been something I “just did” and I can’t honestly say I ever gave it a fair chance to reach its full potential. But recently, with an extra bit of confidence, a series of liberating events, and an unwavering determination, I decided now is the time and finally made a full-length record of my own. And around it, formed a new band called Mosey. Here is the first song from that record.
Valencia was a beloved band 'round these parts - why would vocalist Shane Henderson's new project be any different?

Hit the replies to watch their debut music video for "Wasting Time," and be sure to let us know what you think.
