THE AMAZONS look set to confirm their status as Britain’s biggest breaking rock band with the release of their eagerly anticipated self-titled debut album, out June 2nd on Fiction Records. To coincide with the announcement, the band have also shared a new video for their current single Black Magic.
It’s been a heady rise for the Reading-based quartet. The most hotly tipped guitar band of 2017 according to Music Week, The Amazons were shortlisted for the BBC Music Sound of 2017 poll, nominated for Q’s Best Breakthrough Act gong and made an appearance in MTV’s Brand New 2017list. They also featured in Apple Music’s New Artists 2017 playlist and popped up in Amazon UK’s Ones To Watch and Deezer’s picks for 2017 polls.
Meanwhile the broadsheets and music press have been all over them, with NME, Kerrang!, Metro,Daily Star, Daily Mirror, Gigwise and Radio X all tipping them for greatness. Beat 1’s Zane Lowe is a huge fan, and so are Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, Annie Mac, Clara Amfo, Nick Grimshaw, Mistajamand Greg James. Frankly, it’s not hard to see why.
Produced by the Grammy nominated Catherine Marks (Wolf Alice, Foals, PJ Harvey) and recorded at the world famous Assault and Battery Studios in west London, the album is the result of THE AMAZONS’ mission statement to reinvigorate rock ‘n’ roll. Passionate, ballsy, tender and loud as hell, this is an album not just for the young, but the young at heart too.
