Comprised of bassist Kris Pandierada, drummer Andrew Fasken and guitarist/vocalist Marko Woloshyn, Toronto’s Bike Thiefs absorb music as quickly as one would expect from a group of millennial audiophiles. Pandeirada cut his teeth producing hip hop beats in his basement, Woloshyn holed up in his room wringing the ink out of Leonard Cohen sheet music and Fasken immersed himself in the world of 2000s punk rock; booking shows and playing in a handful of hardcore bands.
Bike Thiefs are a chatty post-punk band that have drawn comparisons to rock stalwarts Fugazi and Constantines as well as more contemporary acts like Parquet Courts and Car Seat Headrest. The band has been featured in several international publications including Paste, Exclaim! and New Noise. Over the past two years, Bike Thiefs have toured across Canada and the United States and have opened for various international acts including Wavves, Antarctigo Vespucci (Jeff Rosenstock & Chris Farren) and The Dirty Nil. Bike Thiefs latest single “Hockey Dad,” produced by Josh Korody ( The Dirty Nil, Dilly Dally) and Shehzaad Jiwani of Greys celebrates it’s fandom for early indie rock as well as 90s avant-pop and acid jazz.
