Company of Thieves

"Peeled and Revealed Tour"

It was fate that brought two rebellious teenagers together on the train platform at Union Station in Chicago over a decade ago, as Company of Thieves’ founding members, Genevieve Schatz and Marc Walloch sat across from one another and became fast friends over a conversation about The Beatles. With two records, countless headlining tours, a late night television appearance, a charting alternative radio single “Oscar Wilde” and a dream-come-true music biz discovery story under their belt, it seems that fate that has brought the cult band back from hiatus.

The band quickly became a favorite amongst the Chicago indie rock community. After scraping together recording funds, the kids took a risk and independently released their debut album “Ordinary Riches”  in 2007. They soon played SXSW, got discovered and re-released "Ordinary Riches" via Wind-Up Records in 2009, following up with their sophomore LP, "Running From A Gamble," in 2011. 

With industry and personal struggles, the band took a hiatus and decided to pursue other creative outlets in 2013. Genevieve went on to release a solo EP “Show Your Colors” and tours the material accompanied by Chris. Marc released a solo record “Through The Seasons” under the moniker Spill, and also played bass for AWOLNATION. The time spent apart for the band was an important step in each member’s journey to self-discovery, whether it be musical or personal, but ultimately, fate played it’s hand of cards.

“We had been playing music separately and had been missing each other immensely. We would run into each other at venues and shows in LA and get misty eyed,” says Gen of Marc. “One night Chris and I were driving after a show and a car clipped the back of us. It was this moment where my life flashed before my eyes, and I thought - oh my god, I miss Marc so much.”

Shortly after, the band embarked on a camping trip, where they built a fire together and expressed their longing to bring Company of Thieves back to life.

The band went on a reunion tour in fall 2017 to a a packed house every night and shortly followed that up with opening for Walk The Moon on their "Press Restart" North American Tour January-February 2018. They have also released a new EP, Better Together, early in 2018 with an NPR music video premier for the band’s first single, Treasure. 

Whether it was on that train platform in Chicago or on the highway in LA, fate had it’s hand in bringing this esteemed tribe back together. As they say, you can never break the chain.

VIP Ticket includes preshow Meet & Greet, Q&A wiith the band, autographed show poster, photo, and an intimate performance.
