Initially a two-piece rock band, Colton Tucker (guitar, vocals) and Cory Brewer (drums), set out with the intention to create massive sounds with limited instrumentation, accompanied by an experimental and rhythmic pop balance. After a three-year stint, the newly titled ADMIRALS formed with the addition of Brett Murphy (bass) and Andrew Bair (keyboard, production). Immediately following their conception, ADMIRALS garnished a cult-like following after a series of recurring shows in the Stillwater and Oklahoma City area. Soon thereafter ADMIRALS attracted the attention of Dallas-based indie label Idol Records. With the support of Idol Records, ADMIRALS subsequently released their self titled EP (produced by Grammy Award recipient Trent Bell) and embarked on a series of regional and national tours.
Described by Spy FM as “Indie Rock with Pop sensibilities”, the latest full-length album, "Amidst the Blue" focuses on transformation with focus on extensive instrumentation, experimental sounds, and a deeper look into a shared human experience. The music dares to be thought provoking, yet urges you above all else to lose control.
"Our music is about more than just the songs we play," says frontman Cameron Neal, "It's about losing yourself in the sound and creating an experience that sticks with you long after the show is over." With Cameron on vocals and guitar, Alberto Roubert on drums, Cody Fowler on bass, Zach Zeller on keys, and Alex Coleman on guitar, an experience is what you get when seeing Horse Thief live.
Some songs on the Grow Deep, Grow Wild EP, such as "I Am The Bear," hint at influences like The Smiths, while others like the Oklahoma anthem, "Warrior," draw upon the band's raw, epic psyche-rock tones.
Originally hailing from Denton, Texas, the band decided to attend the Academy of Contemporary Music at the University of Central Oklahoma (ACM@UCO) which is how they came to share the same management team as label-mates The Flaming Lips.
Before the start of school the band took a trip to Creede, Colorado to write new material before starting their new lives in Oklahoma. They discovered the name Horse Thief while looking at a map of local hiking trails and realized the name chimed with the freewheeling feelings their music conveys.
