The Amazons are set to release new album 'Future Dust' on May 24th.
The Reading band's debut album was an electrifying success, sparking a huge series of UK shows.
Returning to the studio last year, The Amazons became entranced by heavier sounds, with a slight blues edge.
“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.”
Out on May 24th, The Amazons tease their incoming album with brand new single 'Doubt It'.
A crunching, swaggering return with a hint of Queens Of The Stone Age in there, it's very much a mission statement for the album as a whole.
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."
Tune in now.
