As much as you may want to spend the rest of your day watching Jersey Shore Family Vacation, we’ve got a better use of your time… like a full album stream! Hailing from the state with some 130 miles of Atlantic coast, Lyndhurst, New Jersey’s pop-punk/melodic hardcore foursome, When Thieves Are About, who will drop their new album We’re Literally Almost There via Manic Kat Records on May 4th, are now debuting the whole new debut!

Supporting the new tunes, the guys will also head out on a US trek with label mates Right On, Kid where they’ll show off cuts from the new album thanks to their energetic live performance. Head below for the tunes, tour dates, and album art. Oh, and one last note… speaking of the album, Alfredo Diaz had this to say:

“When Thieves Are About grew up in the punk scene and we wear our influences on our sleeves. We’re grateful to Manic Kat Records for believing in our vision and giving us the opportunity to create something new and unique inspired by the bands we love. Together, we’ve condensed four years, thousands of dollars and hours, and all the energy we could gather into thirty three minutes of musical composition with more melodic and harmonic density than you will find anywhere else in the genre.”
