Former Thieves Premiere New Music at!

Exclusive: Former Thieves Premiere “Trust Fund Kids” Off of Their Upcoming Debut

REVOLVER: What’s this song about?
JOSH SPARKS: Bad people in great situations

Which part of it did you come up with first? And what was the inspiration?
They sort of happened in tandem with one another. Musically it was riffs we’d had floating around for quite a while and finally felt we had a direction for.

Was this an easy song to write or record? Why or why not?
Yes, actually it turned out to be both. We wrote the song literally a week before we went to Seattle to record. The song took three days to complete, so we had just enough time to get it solid before the studio and not enough time to over think it while we were in the studio.

What sort of feedback have you gotten on this song so far?
Great so far. Stylistically it stands out a bit more than our other material, mostly due to the D-beat in the first half of the song, and that’s been a positive. Honestly, I think it’s collectively one of our favorite songs on the record.
