Hot Water Music side project the Ship Thieves announces new album, ‘No Anchor’

Gainesville, Florida, roots-rock act the Ship Thieves—formerly known as Chris Wollard & The Ship Thieves—has announced the details of their third album. Titled No Anchor, the 10-song effort will be released in January 2016 by longtime label No Idea Records.

The Ship Thieves are fronted by Hot Water Music guitarist/vocalist Chris Wollard and fleshed out with a lineup that includes Samiam bassist Chad Darby. No Anchor is described in a press release as having a “heavy emphasis put on space and the songs benefit from a large, organic sound devoid of over processing and ultra compression. These songs breathe, they are alive, and they never let up from the moment the needle hits the groove. They are quite simply the very best songs Ship Thieves have ever written.”
