City of Thieves is the third full-length album released by Manchester, UK-based Sonic Boom Six, and the fifth record to be released on their own Rebel Alliance Recordings. Whilst SB6's eclectic punk soundclash staunchly remains far too down-to-earth to ever being described as 'prog', the album follows the concept of a collection of songs that explore and examine life in a large UK city.
