Young Nashville rockers Future Thieves recently released their new album, Live at Blue Rock, and it's filled with stadium energy and well, good old fashioned rock 'n' roll. Music City definitely has an influence on the band, with that slight southern twang that is so evident beneath all of the ringing guitars and commanding vocals.



Although they're on the rise, they sound like a band that has been gracing massive venues with their presence for hundreds of years. They've got their performance on lock, and we wanted to talk to them about one of the most vital instruments in their music. The clashing drums. "I am currently playing a vintage Ludwig kit with 12"x10" floating tom and 16"x 16" floor tom; the classic oyster-mod wrapping, just like Ringo Starr of The Beatles with a 6"x14" Ludwig "black magic" snare alongside DW hardware (apart from one Yamaha snare stand)," Drummer Gianni Gibson told Baeble. "Since I have been playing drums, I've been using Zildjian cymbals and Promark drumsticks with The Rock'n'Soc drum throne that saves my ass! The kit all together has so much character to it. I was living on the east coast at the time I purchased it and was beyond ecstatic to find such an amazing drum set. It has been all over the country and have seen blood, sweat and tears." The drums are so prominent in the music, they have the power to change everything at any second. Let Future Thieves rock their way into your heart and make sure you check out Live at Blue Rock.
