Loose blues grooves, religious references and falsetto backing vocals abound on songs that explore issues including social media witch hunts, eating disorders and depression, but never lose sight of a singalong.“We were searching for a heavier sound and we found it by delving back through the blues,” says singer Matthew Thomson. “From Led Zeppelin, we discovered Howlin’ Wolf and immersed ourselves in his back catalogue. I read Hellfire, the Jerry Lee Lewis biography, and fell in love with the Biblical language that was used to describe his ‘devil music’.“As much as the songs, it was the stories and characters that we loved. Playing boogie-woogie piano in murky clubs sounds pretty tame now, but back then, it was raw and dangerous. We wanted to capture that with a dirtier, grittier, sexier sound.”The Amazons were the most hotly tipped band of 2017 and followed through with their debut album reaching #8 in the official chart. From BBC Radio 1 and 6 music A lists, to rounding off the campaign with a sold out tour including London’s Kentish Town Forum, The Amazons are now a rock band poised for greatness in 2019.WEDNESDAY 29TH MAY 2019 - DOORS OPEN AT 6.00PM / LIVE ONSTAGE AT 7.00PM / ALBUM SIGNING 7.45PMPRE-ORDER/PURCHASE OF NEW ALBUM 'FUTURE DUST' ON CD OR LP FROM ROUGH TRADE IS ESSENTIAL FOR ENTRY.
