As the final curtain falls on 2017, The Amazons are undoubtedly one of the year’s biggest success stories in the world of breaking British rock bands. Their self-titled debut album smashed into the album charts at#8 when it was released in the summer, and it also landed two places higher on the vinyl album chart. They made a triumphant return to their hometown festival Reading when they played to a packedFestival Republic Stage, while their autumn headline tour was entirely sold-out in advance.
Now the quartet put the finishing touches to a triumphant year by sharing a new video for their debut album’s closing track ‘Palace’. The video juxtaposes live footage from their sold-out show at the O2 Kentish Town Forum with clips of frontman Matt Thomson performing the song in his garage. It encapsulates the band’s meteoric rise: songs which were written long before The Amazons made a name for themselves are now hollered back at them by a growing devoted fanbase.
They’ve already announced details of their first tour of 2018:
1st – Birmingham, O2 Institute
2nd – Glasgow, Garage
3rd – Manchester, Albert Hall – SOLD OUT
8th – Cambridge, Junction 1
9th – Portsmouth, Pyramids
10th – Reading, The Hexagon
