The Fire Theft is the debut and only studio album by American rock band The Fire Theft. This album was released September 23, 2003, through the independent record label Rykodisc. In September 2019, the service Run Out Groove made a poll on their site to test demand for vinyl reissues of their catalog, with one of the choices being The Fire Theft. The album won out, and was subsequently remastered and reissued with new artwork.
Outtakes from this album include "Hands on You" and "Easy Whistle".
Some CD pressings omit "Waste Time Segue" showing "Oceans Apart" as track 2 and thus totaling only 12 tracks. This led to confusion as to the song titles as each track number after "Uncle Mountain" is offset by one (i.e. "Sinatra" is listed as track 12 even though it is track 13).
