Outlaw Alt-Folk Band Tejon Street Corner Thieves Drop New Single & Hit The Road With Amigo The Devil


By Stevie Connor.



Tejon Street Corner Thieves, the captivating outlaw alt-folk ensemble hailing from Colorado Springs, have unveiled their latest single, "The End of Apathy". To kick off the journey in support of their forthcoming album 'Juxtaposition,' set to release on October 27th, 2023 through Liars Club Records, the Corner Thieves are hitting the road for an American tour alongside Amigo The Devil.


"With a lot going on in the world, I felt I needed to write a song that gave hope. If for no one else, maybe just for me," said Shawn D’Amario when commenting about the inspiration behind the new single. "This song is about deciding to no longer be caged and broken down by the ones with the money to keep us that way. It's about deciding to no longer be content with struggling.”


Produced under the expert guidance of acclaimed producer Bill Douglas (known for his work with Veruca Salt and Smashing Pumpkins) at Royal Recordings in Colorado Springs, 'Juxtaposition' promises to be a significant addition to Liars Club's ever-expanding roster. Tejon Street Corner Thieves, the pioneering act signed to Liars Club Records the label co-founded by Amigo the Devil and indie powerhouse Regime Music Group, present a 9-track masterpiece showcasing their remarkable ability to seamlessly blend Americana, Bluegrass, Folk, and Punk into a cohesive and commanding sound.


From their humble beginnings as street performers on Tejon Street in Colorado Springs, marked by a legendary "corner-stealing" rivalry with fellow buskers, Tejon Street Corner Thieves have come a long way. 'Juxtaposition' adds to their impressive discography, which includes an EP (Demons in 2020), a live acoustic recording (Monarch Sessions in 2020), an album of traditional tunes (Stolen Goods in 2021), and a full-length studio release (Thick As Thieves in 2022). Their unique blend of songwriting finesse, musical prowess, relentless touring, and charismatic stage presence has garnered them a devoted global following known affectionately as "Tejomies."


Beyond the recording studio, Tejon Street Corner Thieves' live performances are unforgettable experiences. Fans revel in a party-like atmosphere, often shedding shirts, crowd-surfing, and enthusiastically participating in spirited bluegrass mosh pits. Consequently, the band has secured coveted tour slots alongside powerhouse artists such as The Dead South, Amigo the Devil, Trampled By Turtles, The Infamous Stringdusters, and recently concluded a successful European tour with The Dead South.
