The Amazons announce new album ‘Future Dust’

“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 announce their new album ‘Future Dust’will be released on 24thMay on Fiction Records, alongside revealing new single ‘Doubt It’. Listen here:
‘Doubt It’ is a hip swaggering, scorcher of a song about a romantic encounter that encapsulates the musical journey that The Amazons have been on over the past two years.

Lead singer Matthew Thomson says, “Doubt It is about being on the edge of making a potentially stupid decision due to lust-induced blindness. It addresses the lingering doubts, the residue of morals and succumbing to the temptations.” 

From the moment it bursts from the blocks with its menacing, lead single Mother (which is currently on the Radio 1 A list), ‘Future Dust’ barely pauses for breath. Sod fooling about. The Amazons’ sublime second album is as explosive as expected from the Reading rockers and is packed with surprises no one saw coming.

‘Future Dust’ is an album that retools rock’s dark past for the present day while having an absolute blast. 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.

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.

The band will be playing a homecoming Reading gig at Reading University on 27th May as well as a host of festivals over the summer, including the recently announced Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Middlesborough.
