“On their third release in as many years, Austin’s young noise punk quartet has crafted its best work by converting the mundane into inspiration. Over punishing start-stop rhythms and guitars exhaling distortion – recalling Jesus Lizard circa 1990 and the Refused circa 1996 – Super Thief’s losing streak of boredom, self-doubt, and rat-race nihilism fuels powerful missives touching on artistic indignity, traffic on I-35, and paranoia.” – Kevin Curtin (The Austin Chronicle)
Our full-length debut STUCK will be out on June 9. In the meantime, check out the first two singles premiering on Post-Trash and New Noise Magazine. Preorders for digital and tape versions are up on our Bandcamp now.
“Books w/ No Pages” bursts to life like an unholy awakening, the pulse like a stampede that runs over you, pauses momentarily, then tramples you several more times. Students of the AmRep/Touch & Go school for noise rock, Super Thief draw comparisons to bands like The Jesus Lizard, Hammerhead, and Tar, but their attack is more impenetrable, more persistent. There’s no lull, no restraint. When the band pull back ever so slightly from the carnage, it’s only to hammer in the reality of their earthquaking rhythms and rusted distortion. The gnarled and contorted “Books w/ No Pages” may not cure your headache, but you won’t soon forget the band’s volatile punk density… or where the drugs are.”
– Dan Goldin (Post-Trash, Exploding in Sound)
Hello. It’s been a while… Here’s what’s new in our world:
The second Dillo Milk compilation came out at the end of September. It features 18 Austin bands including a new song from us! Check it out:

AND dump sink tapes are now available on our bandcamp so pick one up! Those live tracks are on the b-side…
January was a busy month for us. We played a couple of Free Week shows in Austin and then we did our first tour all the way up to Canada to play Big Fun Fest. To celebrate the tour, we put out some new tracks and updated our Bandcamp with new merch items including S/T tapes, Dillo Milk tapes, stickers, and USB drives.
