Youth radio broadcasters triple j showed strong support for standout tracks ‘Vultures’ and ‘Salad Days’ before showcasing Greenthief as a featured artist on Unearthed.

So far 2012 has been a massive year for the band, with them recently completing a 23-date national tour in support of Australian rock legends ‘The Butterfly Effect’ playing to sold out venues across the country (April/May/June). With a swag of definitive tour and release plans lined-up for the remainder of the year, now is the time to become acquainted with one of Australia’s most engaging alt-rock bands. ‘Mr Number 1’ will be released 10th August.

“‘Retribution’ has the power to make lesser bands just give up for good, believe it.” – Uber Rock (United Kingdom)

“Without doubt a band that I think we shall be hearing a lot more of in 2012….” – May The Rock Be With You (Hey that’s us!)
