Yes, The Joy Thieves is the name of this monstrous, post-industrial/rock/punk musical collective. But it is also the name of the audio production/remixing team of James Scott and Dan Milligan.

We have also worked on projects with current and former members of Ministry, Pigface, Nitzer Ebb, Stabbing Westward, KMFDM, Cubanate, C-Tec, Blue October, Chemlab, CHANT, Marilyn Manson, Machines of Loving Grace, 16VOLT, Ashes Divide, Stoneburner, Shreikback, Meat Beat Manifesto, My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult, Wandering Stars, Dead Agent, Amaranth, and many more.
