Securing Management they recorded their ep at John Sykes (Whitesnake/Blue Murder) Berlin Studios they released  their debut single "I Wish You Were Dead" March 22nd 2019and the four track Ep "This is RocknRoll" released May 2019, through the bands own label Coffee N Mint Records.

So Takeaway Thieves didnt release their DEBUT album in 2020 ...recording resumes in December with award winning Producer Dave Draper.... They did get fans to film a Lockdown video for "This is RocknRoll" Takeaway Thieves also self recorded and filmed a single  "Find My Way Home" ...They were one of the first bands to play an online gig  which was watched by over 15000 LIVE  raising over £2000 that night ...and one of the last to play in a venue in the UK  before Lockdown ..never asking for a tip with online gigs they have raised over £6000 for various charities ...With their First Headline gig at the Waterloo Blackpool selling out in 3 days and

having secured 10 Festival slots for 2021  amongst other dates  and the release of their debut album the band are going from strength to strength with a loyal following.

#1 EP of the YEAR voted by New Wave of Classic Rock 
BEST EP of 2019 - Anne Estella Manchester Rocks

“The EP delivers with a verve and swagger.....Driving Riffs, shredding solos, and huge hooks just about guarantee that this Band will be a joy to watch live if their songs deliver as much punch live as they do on the record. ”

This is RocknRoll is the theme song for Underkill TV and Anne Estella Rocks
