The Joy Thieves is an ever-expanding industrial/punk/hard rock collective that includes current, former, and touring members of bands such as Ministry, Stabbing Westward, The Rollins Band, Killing Joke, Pigface, Revolting Cocks, , David Bowie, Machines of Loving Grace, Marilyn Manson, Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails, KMFDM, Naked Raygun, Foetus, My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult, Blue October, Pegboy, Nitzer Ebb, Die Krupps, White Zombie, and many more.
And while it may be hard to imagine the sound of a band with 40+ members who are spread all across the globe, this musical juggernaut has developed their own unique sound that is surprisingly cohesive.
It’s raw, yet precise. Combative, but refined. Dark and aggressive, but topped with triumphantly singable choruses. It’s a sound that can only be described as being created by all of us. And yet, none of us.
